Canto varies in tone and pitch when the vehicle accelerates, brakes or reverses

Auto manufacturer Nissan has introduced the future sound of its electric vehicles. Canto (which is derived from the Latin for ‘I sing’) varies in tone and pitch when the vehicle is accelerating, braking or reversing. It is activated at speeds of up to 20-30kph.

Canto has mainly been developed as an alert sound to help with pedestrian safety, but it is also designed to provide a distinct Nissan sound that enriches the aural environment of a city street. The sound is energizing and confident, and is said to be clearly audible without being overly disturbing to pedestrians, residents and passengers. You can check out the video for Canto below.
