We reported yesterday that although Tesla will sell you a normal, round steering wheel, they appear to be serious about offering the Model S and Model X with a u-shaped yoke.

Serious or not, though, it does raise the question of whether or not it’s legal to offer its two EVs with the yoke. Speaking to Road & Track, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration doesn’t appear to know if the wheel meets regulatory standards.

“At this time, NHTSA cannot determine if the steering wheel meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards,” the federal agency replied. “We will be reaching out to the automaker for more information.”

Turns out the media wasn’t the only institution surprised by it. However, even if it is legal, the question of whether it’s desirable or not is another one entirely. Aside from looking kind of futuristic, the yoke doesn’t have any obvious advantages. In fact, it’s likely harder to use than a round wheel. As Regular Car Reviews points out in its review of the Knightrider car, a yoke such as this actually makes slow-speed maneuvers a whole lot harder.

A normal steering wheel’s round shape is perfect for the job it was designed to do, and even if many manufacturers have introduced flat-bottomed ones, they are still easy to use. Those in race cars, which look more like the one in the new Teslas, have very small turning circles and, in any case, are not meant to do things like a three-point turn or parallel park like a normal car.

It’s a testament to the weirdness of the wheel, though, that it has overshadowed the rest of the car. If Tesla’s promise of a 0-60 of less than 2 seconds turns out to be accurate, it would be the fastest-accelerating production car of all time. With a top speed of 200 mph and a range of 520 miles, the impressive figures don’t stop there, either.


去年9月首度亮相的全新世代Mercedes-Benz S-Class,在台灣賓士的預告下終於確定將於今年農曆年後、也就是3月初正式登台發表,依照油耗送測名單,首波導入車型有搭載3.0升柴油動力的S 350 d與S 350 d L,以及搭載3.0升汽油動力含EQ Boost輕油電科技的S 450 4Matic L與S 500 4Matic L共四款車型。

雖然目前台灣賓士仍未對外公布預售訊息,不過去年底經銷通路傳出已經開始接單,接單預售價格也跟著曝光,其中S 350 d的預售價為450萬元起,長軸設定的S 350 d L為515萬元,等級更高還配備4Matic四輪傳動系統的S 450 4Matic L與S 500 4Matic L,預售價則分別訂在625萬元起、745萬元起。

配備部分,據了解新世代S-Class將全車系標配AirMatic氣壓懸吊系統、多光束智慧型LED頭燈、Burmester 3D環場音響系統、Smartphone Intergration無線智慧型手機整合系統、Qi無線充電座、環景式內裝照明含64色氛圍燈,以及主打可結合人類五感的新一代MBUX互動式多媒體系統。

新世代S-Class主打可結合人類五感的新一代MBUX互動式多媒體系統。

這套率先應用於新世代S-Class的新一代MBUX互動式多媒體系統,除了涵蓋12.3吋數位儀表板、12.8吋中控觸控螢幕,內建MBUX語音助理與擴增實境導航功能之外,在S 500 4Matic L車型上還首度導入擴增實境抬頭顯示器與3D儀表板。其中擴增實境抬頭顯示器可將導航方向路徑與前方環境合為一體,讓駕駛者可以提早並更精準地判斷行車路線,開往正確的方向,同時確保行車安全;而3D儀表板為了因應駕駛不時需要切換視線方向,特別利用儀表板內的紅外線攝影機持續追蹤駕駛者雙眼,根據視線位置生成空間影像,無論什麼角度皆可感受立體顯像效果。

此外,新一代MBUX互動式多媒體系統還可透過智能控制來判斷駕駛使用邏輯、減少操作手續。例如倒車時,駕駛者只需依照平時習慣,將視線順勢轉移至後方,系統即會自動收起後擋玻璃電動遮陽簾,讓車輛後方的路況一覽無遺;若駕駛者在夜間要開啟手套箱拿取物品,副駕駛座的室內燈就會主動開啟;而當調整後視鏡時,無須再左右切換選擇,駕駛者只需注視欲調整的後視鏡就可直接進行調整。

不僅如此,為了滿足後座買家,新一代MBUX互動式多媒體系統更將聲控系統延伸至後座,後座乘客除了可透過11.6吋雙螢幕選擇多媒體內容、調整導航目的地之外,也能夠直接說出「你好,賓士」與MBUX語音助理溝通,無須再依賴前座傳遞訊息。

當然在新世代S-Class上市之前,詳細的規格配備還有待台灣賓士一一揭露,正式售價也得等發表當天才會公布,因此想要掌握這款豪華旗艦房車的最新動態,還請繼續關注本站報導。
