Tesla drivers cannot find the horn, so the button is moved via software update

-

The new Tesla Model S and X, launched early last year, brought big changes on board, albeit small ones to the exterior. The steering wheel was the element that underwent the biggest changes. It was changed from a traditional round shape to one that more resembles an airplane handle, without the top part of the circle. This change was also accompanied by other important changes that caused confusion among drivers. Some of them could not even find the horn quickly, but a firmware update will bring this button back to the center where it should have been from the beginning.

Currently, those who want to press the horn on the steering wheel of the Tesla Model S have to press on the upper right side of the steering wheel, not in the center where the Tesla logo is located. However, when turning to the right, the position of the button shifts to the left side, as there is no way to quickly push it to its original position. Drivers complained that the original placement and changed position was not intuitively accessible when used, leading to emergency situations where the horn was difficult to find.

However, Elon Musk has confirmed that a future update will move the horn button from the surface of the steering wheel to the central area, where the driver’s airbag is also located. All vehicles built from November 2021 will already have this button installed, but a software update will be required to activate it.

Changing the location of the horn button is not the only innovation Tesla has made to its new vehicles. For example, there is no longer a gear stick, and switching between Drive, Park and Neutral is automatic. The car recognizes whether you want to drive backwards or forwards and knows when you have parked. Those who want to change the driving direction manually can only do so via the touchscreen on the dashboard.
