I like the sound of silence
Your favorite song, poem over a speaker. Maybe the sound of a waterfall.
Maybe SNOWFLAKEs hunting for a safe place, and their crying buckets of tears
This creates Model 3 demand and is good for Tesla.
Sound cancelling technology might help the driver and his/her passengers:
A good AC/DC tune, like "Hi-Way to Hell"
is my suggestion for the Tesla sound
'Another one bites the dust' FTW.
Well, that is good, but. THUNDERSTRUCK
Hope we can change from a bell or horn, retrofit if possible. Use thumb drive Christmas music, or whatever.

Okay, Sammy H...
I have heard a rumor that all electric vehicles will need to be preceded by a man carrying a red flag by day, and a red lantern by night.
"Love is like a bomb, Baby come and get it on..." -- 'Pour Some Sugar on Me', DEF LEPPARD
Yeah. That would work for me.
I like the Def Leppard one!
I will take Peter Griffin making loud horrible fake engine noises. People will beg me to do 20 MPH through the neighborhood.
I listen to ICE cars pull out of a parking lot and their engines are very quiet - tire noise seems to me higher decibels than the engine like on a new Buick or Cadillac I would like to know for sure. Tire noise on my Model S, I think, is high enough as to not require artificial sound. Have there been any tests done to justify adding noise to EVs?
@flight505 Here is the best I could find.
Take a look specifically at pages 11 and 12.
I would still like to see an updated study.
As an alternate to this idiocy, why don't they require an automated system to detect the approach of a BEV or hybrid and then flicker the pedestrian crossing light accordingly, unless we all have to abide by the requirements of blind pedestrians without companions?
The noise requirement law is an abuse on its face ... !
I suggest a series of twenty to thirty seconds of honks on your horn if the vehicle senses a human within 10 yards using onboard hardware.
Remember the objective to warn the idiots not to walk in front of a moving vehicle.
The law is changing soon where pedestrians are not responsible when walking-into or out of a roadway. Much like a guy on a bike, he can run red lights, stop signs and not get caught by the authorities. If hit by a vehicle while doing these things, the vehicle driver is guilty.
So horns, blasting might be a good thing. How much is a do citric air horn set up
red, you forgot "Rocket" from Def Leppard
From Pearl Jam "GO" and "SPIN THE BLACK CIRCLE"
