Unique Alerts For Volvo’s Electric Range

TO IMPROVE safety, Volvo Trucks has developed an acoustic alert system with unique, premium sounds for its electric truck models. The alert, designed to be pleasant and unobtrusive will increase safety by making pedestrians, cyclists and other road users aware of approaching trucks.
From 1 July 2021, all electric vehicles in the UK were required to emit a certain sound level when travelling at speeds below 12mph.
The sound level required depends on the speed and gets higher as it increases. At 12mph it should be at least 56 decibels. If the vehicle is too quiet, an external acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS) must be added.
