Feb. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Electric cars in the European Union won’t be allowed to make animal noises or musical sounds to help people hear them in traffic, Bild reported, citing an EU rule.|

While the rule says electric cars must make a steady, artificially generated noise while in operation, animal and insect sounds, melodies, sirens and bells are banned, the Berlin-based newspaper reported today.
