Elon Musk: Tesla Will soon Allow Custom horn and Movement Sounds :- Tesla isn’t done with whimsical software updates just because Netflix and Cuphead have reached your car… in fact, there’s a good chance people outside the car will notice. Elon Musk has revealed that Tesla cars will “soon” have the option to customize horn and low-speed movement sounds. The full selection of sounds isn’t available, but Musk is teasing goat bleats, rushing wind and even the coconut horse clops from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, just in case you want to roll up to the traffic lights Arthur-style.
Tesla will soon allow custom horn sounds
In an official tweet, Musk wrote that customised horn and movement sounds will be soon introduced to Teslas. Known for his unconventional approach to all things tech, Musk specified in his tweets that movement sounds such as coconut horse sounds, rushing wind sound, and goat bleats will also be on offer.
Musk further added that he “will consider” allowing custom upload sounds, although we can imagine that being problematic if drivers decide their horns should blare colourful language. Tesla might also be bound by regional requirements for specific movement sounds to alert pedestrians.
One might not have to wait if you’re determined to get a Monty Python fix in a Tesla. One Model 3 owner has discovered that naming his car after Holy Grail’s daunting Rabbit of Caerbannog created a Tesla Theater shortcut to Monty Python videos on YouTube. Electrek also found references in the Tesla Android app’s code to a currently unavailable “Patsy Mode” (named after Arthur’s sidekick in Holy Grail) that could play the coconuts when you summon your car from Auto Park. Things are about to get very silly in your EV, then, whether or not you’re actually moving.
