Electric cars need to sing! Electric cars have a safety issue, but not related to the motors, to the public. Because they move along the road surface silently people can’t hear them coming. Nissan has unveiled sound future electric vehicles with the ‘canto’ concept, canto from Latin for ‘I sing.’
Designed with pedestrian safety in mind, the unique sound varies in pitch and tone depending on driving conditions. Now car manufacturers are being told ALL electric cars must make noise by 2019! If you are currently using an electric vehicle and it makes no noise, better start singing lessons or ensure the horn works! Be careful out there.
