The Tesla Model 3 will have futuristic 'spaceship' steering controls, says Elon Musk

The steering wheel setup in the Tesla Model 3 — seen above in a shot from the media event last week — is not the version that will be in the final car, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said tonight in a series of tweets.

Instead, the “real steering controls and system” for the Model 3 feel “like a spaceship.” Musk went on to say that the lack of a traditional dashboard and instrument cluster “will make sense after part 2” of the Model 3 unveiling. That’s expected to come much closer to production.


The Verge deputy editor Chris Ziegler, who actually rode in the Model 3 last week, wonders if the Model 3 is actually a self-driving car, and posits that the weird setup is a radical rethink of the interior of the car in anticipation of the driver not actually needing to drive. The theory is that by completely dispensing of the driver-centric cockpit in the Model 3, Tesla is signaling that it wants you to sit back and ride.

We may not know for sure until the next Model 3 event, but it’s clear that Elon Musk has plenty more Model 3 details to tease us with.
