A friend of mine just took delivery of his brand new Tesla Model 3 less than one week ago. When he drove into the parking lot I told him that I could hear his electric motor running in the front. He replied that he has rear wheel drive, and since it was a cold day I said it might be the fan running for the heater on the battery. Afterwards I wondered if this sound is generated when the car is running less than 15 MPH for pedestrians to hear? Interesting. Anybody heard of new sounds for pedestrians?
