The problem with electric cars is that their engines tend to run significantly quieter than normal car engines. This can be a problem for pedestrians who may not otherwise hear an electric car driving behind them, especially if they are wearing headphones. However, Tesla might have an answer to this problem.
In a tweet from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, he revealed that Tesla cars may soon be able to speak to people in the future. This means that Tesla vehicles through multiple speakers may be able to speak to people around them and tell them that they are behind them. We are not sure whether these plans include drivers being able to communicate directly with people outside, or whether this is only through pre-recorded sounds.
However, it should be noted that it is now a problem in the EU. For safety reasons, it is a legal requirement that electric cars emit noise. It is therefore not surprising that Tesla accepts this and takes part. Just last year, the company pointed out that additional sound effects such as custom horn sounds and movement sounds could also get into their vehicles. So this seems to be an extension of these plans.

We're not sure if this is a feature applicable to older Tesla is cars because of the lack of speakers on the outside, but for those who have the function, hopefully it will only be a software upgrade away.
