Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce a new feature that would make the Model 3 talk to pedestrians.

In a tweet, Musk posted a short clip of the Model 3 speaking to pedestrians as the car slowly passes them, with a pre-recorded message, "Well, don't just stand there staring, hop in," Fast Company notes.
