Tesla emphasizes that thanks to its switch to a 48V system, it can power the motors required for steer-by-wire.
⚡Tesla launched its first ‘steer-by-wire’ car. The company eliminated the mechanical connection between the steering wheel and wheels with #Cybertruck.
🟢Thanks to the switch to 48V low voltage electrical architecture, the company uses completely electronic steering instead of the vehicle’s heavy and complex steering system. It offers four-wheel steering with three motors, two in the front and one in the rear, with a total of 5 horsepower.
🛻 Cybertruck can make a full wheel turn at low speed with a steering angle narrower than 180 degrees and at high speed thanks to steer-by-wire. It can change the vehicle’s steering/wheel rotation ratio within seconds and restrict movement. Thus, a safer driving performance with high maneuverability/accuracy and a narrow turning circle can be achieved.
⚡Tesla emphasizes that thanks to its switch to the 48V system, it can power the motors required for steer-by-wire. The company also adds that as the mechanical steering was replaced by a few small motors, cables, and controllers, a larger space was created in the cabin and the vehicle weight decreased.
