    [Moderator note: existing thread about this topic is at All Model 3s built since 9/1 have a pedestrian warning speaker installed ]

    Since I am relatively new here I am not certain about the etiquette of posting things from another site. However someone on Tesla Owners Online stated that there has been an addition to M3's made following Sept 1, 2019. Again, this is second hand information, but according to the source (listed below), Tesla will be adding a noise emitter to warn pedestrians that the car is present (below 19 mph forward and in reverse).

    Forward: Tesla Model 3 Noise Emitter Forward Sound
    Reverse: Tesla Model 3 Noise Emitter Reverse Sound

    The original posting from Tesla Owners Online is located here:
    All Model 3's built since September 1 now have noise emitter - Tesla Owners Online

    FYI.

    Reverse is cool, forward not so much. Really liked the forward sound emitter of the Taycan.

    Sorry for the post. It was new to me and I didn't see it anywhere else. Sorry for the redundancy.

    Rick.

    I guess I’m the only one here but I welcome this. I want seeing eye dogs, people who are blind, etc to know I am coming behind them. Now of course I want a futuristic sound like the jetsons or something similar. I’d like to have my Prius to have something similar but it’s too old.

    100% seriously can’t understand why it doesn’t at least OFFER the Jetsons sound. I would love to hear that as the low speed, and as I accelerate it speeds up like the old cartoon. It’s iconic
