    Do you have a video of it? Could it be the break pads?

    A video would help.

    The pedestrian warning noise (soon to be required by law for all new EVs) does make a whine only in reverse at low speed (and a white noise hiss when going forward).

    Thanks for posting video. I believe it is the PWS.

    Just ask her to be quiet when you back up.
