Have you got the acoustic pedestrian warning being a 2021 model like mine it's a scrapping metal sound at low speed in EV mode ie not silent ?

That sound, which is a good idea, is not on the C-HR or other Toyota Hybrids in Australia at present, as not compulsory.

Probably will be made compulsory, one day soon, for new models

It's another new EU law so only European countries & the UK are forced to have the acoustic warning sound at the moment.

Won't be long before someone works out how to switch it off via a computer OR unplug it.

Yes it has. Quite an unusual sound but it doesn't bother me and I get the idea if it. Only sounds at very low speed.

It's definitely a good idea. I've very nearly stepped out in front of silent Priuses back when they first came out. One of the reasons I won't wear headphones now while working the streets.

Hopefully Australia will catch up soon on this, and a lot of other stuff too! (I can say that as locked out ex-pat looking in :cry: )

I heard for the first time last week. It does sound at least strange! For a second I was convinced that 2021 RAV has a fault! Few minutes later a C-HR, also 2021, was making the same noise. So not a fault ;)

Looks stunning. I'd be fretting though: with all that piano gloss black trim around the car. 馃ゴ馃ゴ

Looks so stunning in Ash Grey. 馃憤

I still not seen this colour in the flesh but ordered the car from the colour sample & pics. I can't wait for mine to arrive.
