    Tesla might have a solution to noise pollution after new ‘quiet car’ rule for EVs to emit sounds

    [​IMG]

    As we reported yesterday, U.S. regulators adopted a new rule that will force electric vehicle manufacturers to include a device in their EVs to emit a sound at up to 19 mph to protect pedestrians starting in 2019.

    The new rule is controversial in the EV community. While most admit that quiet cars can be a problem at low-speed, especially for the visually impaired, people also fear that adding a sound will remove an important benefit of electric vehicles.

    Tesla and CEO Elon Musk have seen this coming and they have been working on an interesting solution for a while now. more…

    Seems like a logical analysis. Could even be part of standard Model ≡ equipment without having to pay for the AutoPilot software, no?

    That would be better than the all-the-time noise that the Nissan Leafs create.

    I love the fact that Tesla's are silent but if Tesla is required in 2019 to have this then I'm sure they will do the right things are not make it obnoxious. Perhaps our 2017-2018 Model 3s can drive around in silent bliss.

    I think the problem is too much noise pullotion from other vehicules. When it's quiet around you can hear easily an electric car.
    I find this a non problem. if you are below 19mph you must be distracted a lot to hit a pedestrian. I find that it's over protection, overthinking.
    Having a silent car is a big plus, downgrading it to mimik fossile car is sad.

    If this nonsense shows up on my ≡, it will be quickly disconnected.
