Some may have read this but thought I would post it up out of interest.. Read it all before you stop at July 2019!
- From 1st July 2019, new EU law states that every electric car must include an Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS), which emits a noise of between 56 decibels to 75 decibels at low speeds (up to 20km/h or 12.5 mph).
- This law is for new cars that are homologated from 1st July 2019.
- The Audi e-tron 55 has already been homologated, which means the AVAS system will need to be fitted by 1st January 2021. We are currently working on the best way to do this and we will communicate to all customers closer to the time. From model year 2021, all new Audi e-tron’s will be built with the AVAS system.
- We’re still determining precisely what the Audi e-tron AVAS sound will be.
