Video: Volkswagen e-Up! Gets Equipped With Head-Turning Beats to Alert Pedestrians
As automakers continue to ponder what’s the ideal pedestrian warning sound for electric vehicles, Volkswagen thinks it has found the answer
According to Volkswagen:
“In the noise of the city, you hardly notice that the fully electric e-up! makes virtually no noise. That’s why we’ve given this urban runabout and its super quiet electric motor a voice to be proud of, complete with clueless passers-by, hidden speakers, and a very special passenger …”
The e-Up!’s unique pedestrian alert system doesn’t come standard though and it consumes almost the entire back seat, so maybe this isn’t the ultimate solution. We’ll let you be the judge.
