Volkswagen will bring back physical buttons on the steering wheel, according to a media report.
The business has chosen to stop using touch-sensitive surfaces on the steering wheel after receiving criticism for some of its in-car electronics in models like the GTI.
The push-button steering wheel will return, according to VW CEO Thomas Schafer, because that is what Volkswagen's customers want.
Schafer and Volkswagen have not, however, provided a release date for the reintroduction of the upgraded steering wheel. Additionally, the business hasn't yet stated which of its vehicles will get the new steering wheel. These touch-sensitive steering wheels first appeared a few years ago. The Polo GTI, ID.4, and ID.Buzz are just a few of the vehicles in Volkswagen's inventory that currently include touch-sensitive surfaces on the steering wheel.
According to reports, the first car in the US with actual buttons on the steering wheel would appear in the latter half of 2024.
