Tesla electric cars will teach to bleatOctober 8, 2019
In the machine settings, it will be possible to select the horn signal and sound when moving
The head of Tesla, Elon Musk, hinted that in the future, electric car owners will be able to choose at their discretion the horn signal and the sound of the car when driving. Among the proposed options may well be various versions of the “farts”, as well as the bleating of the goat.
At least California residents will be able to select the horn sound, CNET writes, as for other states and countries, the question arises of the legality of using such signals. But all battery cars should make a sound when driving: in the USA, such systems are required to be implemented by September 2020, and in the EU the norm is valid from July 1 of this year.
The theme of unusual sounds is not new to Tesla. So, at the end of last year, along with a new update, the item “emission testing mode” appeared in the settings. Behind him was the next “easter egg” with an imitation of “farts” on request or each time the turn signal was turned on. In total, six “farts” are available to the driver, the seventh plays one of the sounds in random order.
Sound names are associated with Mask companies or features in Tesla. Among them are Not a Fart (this year Musk sold a batch of flamethrowers called Not a Flamethrower), Short Shorts Ripper (referring to stock traders without coverage), Falcon Heavy (a large SpaceX rocket).
Meanwhile, Porsche brought the Taycan sound into a separate option, which costs $ 500 for buyers in the United States. It is called Electric Sport Sound and is an audio recording that is played when the car is accelerated. The description states that she “enhances the own sound of the electric car and makes it even more emotional – both outside and inside.”
