Sounds kind of weird, complared to my 2020 US model, but have you noticed that all the sound is coming from the speaker?

The fan is for cooling, it will come on when it needs to.

Yes, exactly. You can hear the "musical white noise" of VESS and the whining from the motor as it winds up. (The latter sounds a bit loud to me, but that may just be where it was recorded). But on top of that there is a regular knock that seems to be proportional to the motor or transmission rotation speed. That shouldn't be there.

There is another thread here about that knocking sound. It is a known transmission fault. Report it to the dealer now, it will only get worse.
The fix may be to realign the gearbox to the motor, or a new motor!
