Do you prefer the sound of EVs?

I personally love being able to hear the tyre noise, etc. rather than the engine blaring over it all

I am not sure. I mean I have never used an electric car to really get a feel for the differences in sound or anything. I would imagine hearing the engine and everything gives a different feel to the overall driving experience.

I prefer the silence at low speed and the rather undefinable whirring noise when you put your foot down and the motors kick in. Pulling in to a parking slot at Fully Charged the car next to me, arriving just before, was a Mini Cooper S, the owner said he’d never heard such a silent approach!

I think I listen to music too much these days to notice any engine noise! However just think how quieter streets and roads will be once everyone is electric…

I am not sure. I do like the sound of an engine but having been in an EV several times this past year, the minimal noise is almost relaxing. I can actually hear the outside world and it feels less stressful being in a car.
