Silent electric cars may be getting sounds like those in Star Wars in order to help others hear them coming.
One of the main dangers of electric cars is that they are so quiet pedestrians and other road users don't hear them coming, to remedy this there are plans to incorporate sounds like those in Star Wars to the cars so people can hear them.
Their noiseless glide has seen them dubbed the silent killers of the road. But electric cars could soon be given special 'signature tunes' so that pedestrians can hear them coming and avoid stepping out into their path.
