Drive by wire means 'accelerator pedal to speed control' to me,
not steering or braking or anything else. I'd be surprised if any production cars don't have a direct mechanical link between the steering wheel and the tie rod ends.
I'd also be surprised if there were any that didn't have a direct hydraulic link between the brake pedal and the calipers.
Each has his own basic
meaning. The key point is what Tesla does, i.e. typically minimizing mechanical systems and maximizing firmware control.
