Hyundai introduces joystick instead of steering wheel

Hyundai introduces joystick instead of steering wheel

I like it. Would take a little getting used to but I think the concept is good. Opens up the driver space a lot.

Very cool. More like pistol grips than "joysticks", looks like airplane controls.

Nothing new, Saab did that on a concept car many years ago.

I can just imagine the sexual harassment claims when a guy asks his date to "hold his joystick."

Would have made more sense if they’d put in a side-stick. If it’s good enough for an F16 or A380, it should be good enough for a concept car.

Isn't that a regulatory issue? I know some countries that explicitly require wheels for steering in cars...

That is a great looking car. I hope it is more than a concept.

It would be nice to see that or something close to it on the road. I think of amazing GM concept cars and the disappointment which followed when they gave us instead, The Chevette, Volt, Bolt, Cadillac Seville and Cimmaron, etc.

Hyundai didn’t introduce anything that hasn’t been in one concept car or another, before, many years ago.

Isn’t this our video game generation of kids a dream come true?
