2018 Camry Hybrid weird noises

Hello all. Been getting weird noises when I release the brakes on a Camry Hybrid to move forward or reverse. Are these sounds normal on a Camry Hybrid? Also get this gas leak sort of sounds inside. The mileage has been excellent but these sounds worry me. Please let me know if these sounds are normal

That is the automatic warning system for hybrids and electric vehicles to alert pedestrians when the car is propelled by its electric motor.

Yes these noises are normal and you will hear it if the volume is off or in a quiet neighbourhood.

100% normal.

As mentioned above it’s intended
