Model S

Whirring noise - upon swift acceleration

I have been observing a new whirring/shuddering noise from the front end lately. I tried starting speeds - 0 MPH, low speed (15MPH) and moderate 35MPH.. upon full-throttle, swift acceleration there is a whirring noise I hear. Any pointers?


  • To eliminate the Climate control and heat pump as the noise source, turn off climate when trying your test again.

    Could it be the normal front motor sounds? It can be more noticeable with the audio turned off and under hard acceleration.
  • A whine during acceleration is normal in Model S dual motor cars, but if it’s something new then you might want to have service check it out.
