Mercedes-Benz announced last week that they are planning to offer "selectable soundscapes" for their future electric cars.
In addition to the normal engine noises (electric vehicles are required by law to produce sounds that alert pedestrians that an EV is moving), Mercedes wants to provide drivers with engine sounds played through the interior speakers. They will change as the vehicle accelerates, brakes, etc.
The sounds will be artificially generated and piped through the infotainment system. They are also planning to develop unique sounds to alert drivers when the vehicle is unlocked, when it’s fully charged, etc.
Well, at Fremont Auto Center we are happy to hear that Mercedes is ready with the electric vehicles - Mercedes EQC crossover was supposed to be introduced in the US in 2020 but the introduction was delayed due to the pandemic We are the premier Mercedes-Benz repair shop in Fremont, so when Mercedes EQC hits the road, our nationally ASE certified technicians will be ready – trained, and with the latest cutting edge digital equipment to work on the electric Mercedes.
