electric and hybrid cars have to make noise in switzerland | Breaking News

In 2019 all electric and hybrid cars have to make noise in Switzerland. By making an electronic sound, it will be saver for pedestrians and people on bicycles. Also, for people with a visual impairment the chance for an accident with a noise making electric vehicle will be smaller. This news is confirmed by the FEDRO (Federal Roads Office).

Electric- and hybrid cars will start making noise.

The electric- and hybrid cars will be fitted with speakers on the outside that will make the sound of an engine. This technology is known as Acoustic vehicle Alerting System. The sound must be audible at a speed of max 20 km/hour or if the car is reversing. Halfway 2019 this rule will go into effect to all new electric- and hybrid vehicles. If you have an electric- or hybrid car you don’t need to worry. In Switzerland they will be the first to be in line with the European Regulations.
An Organisation in Switzerland who is in charge for the interests of blind does not agree with the regulations and think they don’t go far enough. Also, electric- and hybrid vehicles which stand still should make noise.
