The production version of the RZ 450e looks set to get yoke steering

Uh oh, looks like Lexus agrees with Tesla on something. Teaser shots showing the “production model” of the new RZ 450e have surfaced, and yes, that is a yoke steering setup. What is the automotive world coming to?

Lexus will fully reveal the electric RZ in a couple of weeks time, but of course we’ve already seen the intended design and we’ve had the full lowdown on its sister cars – the Toyota bZ4X and the Subaru Solterra.

In concept form the Toyota arrived with a similar-looking yoke to the one Lexus seems to have run with (see below), and it looks like the mooted, futuristic steer-by-wire system could actually make it into production.
