Didn't notice this before today, but the Taycan makes a pedestrian beeping alert on reverse!!! What is this, a truck?? Much more annoying than the trunk closing sound. This definitely needs to be turned off.

Any ideas?

Like the trunk it must be a US feature if others have it too - seems odd though. Another one for your dealer to investigate.

I thought US regulations dictate this. On all Sept, 2020 and forward builds.

your taycan makes a beep when in reverse? I have never heard my car make any sort of beeping.

The phase in compliance date is peculiar, and not exactly a total reprieve from implementation. Given the large number of Taycan vehicles sold during the phase-in period, it would depend on the mix of cars that Porsche has. It is possible that they need to implement these on some Taycan deliveries before the compliance date in order to meet their 50% requirement. I wonder if they are adding this through the update process. It would not be very hard to do it, since all of the hardware is present. How loud is it? I will open my windows to check next time I am in reverse since I have had the update..

The only time I've heard a reverse beep is when the sensors react to an object that is too close for comfort.

Well I took a video of the car reversing (and due to some technical issues can't show it) but apparently it's only the proximity sensors. Which is surprising how loud it is outside. So I guess any public parking everyone else can hear how close I am to all structures? Geez...

Ok, so just like other cars where the sensors are audible externally when in proximity - normal I'd say!
