Elon Musk: Tesla will soon learn to speak with people
Elon Musk on Twitter said that Tesla cars will soon be able to communicate with people. Musk attached a video from Model 3 to the message, from the speakers of which there is a voice: “Well, don’t stand here, staring, jump.”
This has become possible due to new requirements for electric cars, according to which cars must make arbitrary artificial noise. This is necessary, first of all, for the safety of pedestrians. To enforce the law, Tesla has already begun installing external speakers in cars.

Obviously, Tesla decided to use the speakers for other tasks, including playing any sounds. It is specified that external speakers will also be used for the security system, reproducing loud sounds when trying to break into a car.
