Default Artificial Sound Recorded

Here is a link to a video which does a good job of recording the external noise generator on the e-tron.


Below is my attempt to embed the video in this thread (which may or may not work)

Interesting. At least it not beeping or something obnoxious. I still think itís silly that artificial noise pollution is required.

Hmm! Can you hear it inside the cabin with windows closed?

I fear for the safety of my fuse based on those sounds.Where I live it is super quiet and any sort of 'industrial' noise will be super annoying compared to my present EV's.

Hmmm. Sounds a bit like the obnoxious Ice Cream truck that drives through our neighborhood, in catnip-like fashion, hoping to lure kids to buy ice cream cones. lol

Picked up my E1 yesterday and honestly didn't hear it; windows closed and AC fan running, not even noticeable inside. Drove around with the AC off and windows down today; very subtle. The fact that it goes away around 18 mph makes it transient anyway.

IMO, much ado about nothing.

I wonder how long it will take for artificial car noise to become the new "ring tone." I predict it will not be too long before we will have optional sounds to choose from, just like we have designer lighting options now.

I thought I was going to hate coming from my previous tesla, but I actually like it a lot.

Agree. The noise is barely noticeable. Nothing to go fuse pulling over...

I heard it on my second test drive (didn't hear it the firs time). It's quite mild and I did not find it annoying at all.
