I've heard that there is a mandatory "noise required" legislation to prevent pedestrians from being hit at low speeds which involves EVs being required to emit some sort of sound? Does the Volt have this? I can't hear anything when I'm slowly driving mine? (damn pedestrians are probably zoned out with their face in their phone and/or their earbuds on anyway)
It's not mandatory until September 2019 (in the US anyway). Even then, it's only mandatory for the manufacturers to include the noise device, it still won't be mandatory to have the device operational on your vehicle.
