So the Tesla Model S has no buttons now; just a large touch screen. Other brands are jumping fast to get-rid-of-the-button in their interiors. It’s the twenty teens auto industry response to the mobile device trend for the screen-based human-machine-interface (HMI). You can see why customers would want this. You can see how clearly “new-tech” screens make car interiors look too.
