Japanese auto maker Nissan has unveiled a feature in its electric vehicles that allows them sing to pedestrians at the recently concluded Tokyo motor show. See it in action in the video below:
Nissan Executive Vice President, Daniele Schillaci told the media:“What you just heard was the sound of the future. It is a sound that we call ‘Canto.’ Soon, it will be heard from our Nissan cars on streets around the world.”
The word ‘canto’ is taken from Italian meaning ‘I sing’, the danger with electric vehicles is that many pedestrians might not hear them coming and there is an increased risk of accidents, this singing feature helps to mitigate such danger.
The models that will immediately use this feature are the Nissan LEAF and a concept car launched at the show in Tokyo, Nissan IMx.
