This, by the way is precisely why Tesla avoids buttons. So hard to make people happy with buttons at scale. It’s incredibly hard to get them to feel right.I find the buttons on the steering wheel to have suboptimal tactile feel and responsiveness personally.
Better to have people complaining about not having buttons than having cheap feeling buttons.
Although Apple pulls it off nicely with the volume and power buttons on iPhone. And they make millions of them per quarter.
In the car industry, however, it’s rare for me to find buttons that feel anywhere near satisfactory.
If Lucid wants to do this right, they probably need to manufacture their own buttons, just like they do with battery packs. Otherwise, the quality is just never going to be there.
