Nissan Leaf to Sound like Your Old Kettle


Remember the days when making a hot drink involved placing a kettle on a stove and waiting a few minutes before hearing the highly distinguishable whistle that it made as hot steam escaped? Well Nissan developers obviously do as the new all-electric Nissan Leaf has adopted this soundtrack to be its way of letting pedestrians know that it’s nearby.

The problem with EV’s is that they are silent and as a result not as easy to detect if you’re a pedestrian. The sound as explained in the video is meant to be pleasant and not disturbing towards residents, in our opinion it just sounds like it time for tea so break out the digestives.
