Many are the detractors of the electric car to use the argument of noise … And well after this small development, they will no longer have this argument!
One of the most common complaints from car enthusiasts about electric vehicles is the lack of any intoxicating engine sound. In the UK however, the exhaust manufacturer Milltek Sport has developed a system for the Tesla Model 3 Performance which allows it to resemble – auditively – like a supercar.
The system, presented in the video below is a sound generator kit developed by Miltek which doesn't just pass engine sound through the speakers. In fact, the modified exhaust specialist has integrated metallic sound generators under this Tesla. These are controlled using a smartphone app. The whole thing produces a fairly convincing false exhaust sound, you have to admit.
Something to turn heads
While only a handful of different escape sounds are available at the moment, the tuner is working to add more in the future, including futuristic Star Wars sounds, maybe some a little more suitable for a 100% electric vehicle. You have to admit the very raucous sound of a V12 does not go very well with the Tesla Model 3 Performance.
The owner of the car in question indicates in the video that the reaction of people when it stops at a red light is quite interesting. They don't expect a Tesla to make that kind of noise.
Obviously, this sound generator would not suit everyone: most Tesla customers will certainly prefer the usual silence of an electric vehicle. However, pfor those who think that electric vehicles lack a little emotion without a traditional engine sound, this solution could be perfect.
