Sorry have no idea what you mean? Where is the inverter module area? Is it the strange pedestrian warning noise the car generates at speeds up to 30km in drive, reversing is a gentle beep beep but the noise made when going forwards is a strange whirring noise totally odd and not audible in the car unlike the reversing beep. That would probably make people look as that is what it is designed to do……the car certainly makes all sorts of clicks and whirring noises as things switch in and out even when stationary with the ignition off and there is often the sound of running water trickling away…..

The inverter module sits on top of the electric motor. The noise occurs when the cabin pre entry is turned on. It is on when parked and no one is in the vehicle,

I suspect it's just the heat pump thingy doing it's stuff. Mine sounds pretty loud in my quiet garage, but if I'm in a busy carpark I tend to have to put my ear near the front to hear it. I compared it with a Tesla Model 3 at lunch today, and the Tesla made a very similar noise when in that mode, but louder. Mine sounds a bit like a very muffled Karcher pressure cleaner... and only from the outside... I can't hear it at all from inside.

I tested mine yesterday and yes there is a sound of a fan or motor running but not anything unpleasant. I am sure it is the noise you are talking about as switching the pre climate on and off stoped and started it. It was less than the noise some car radiator fans make whn they continue running after a long hot run in the summer so it was not intrusive or worrying. As I say the car seems to make all sorts of clicks and whirrs even when not switched on strange beast! One thing it made me realise is how good the pre conditioning is shall use that again!
