Even electric vehicles emit tyre noise in exactly the same as other vehicles once over 10/15 mph.
    Sorry mate but I'm not stupid but i never heard that hideous pos nissan van in my yard. Not expecting it so not looking out for it. Yes they need some sort of noise even if it's below a certain speed where there is no tyre noise etc

    And all those nasty polluting dinosaur powered cars will have to pay even more per mile. Some group kept scaremongering about this awhile back...oh wait a minute..

    see a bit about this on the news the other day, they were trying to decide what the noise should be and where on the car it would actually come from

    jokingly one of the ideas put forward was like something from the jetsons, they said that the problem with making it sound like some kind of space ship was that people would look up to the sky when they heard it and not at the road

    I'd take the missed opportunity that they had with Beetles. The infamous Hitler inspired car that wasn't airbrushed from history but really became the people's car.

    So I think anyone that has the audacity to drive a car knowing its dispicable history of consuming fossil fuels and heating up the planet to a simply unbearable temperature for our dear snowflake generation it should emit a 'whoosh, kaboom', 'whoosh, kaboom' sound mimicking the last time there was a global climate event, by a, huge meteor. And deep within the whoosh a subliminal Gregorian chant of 'the drivers a thick cnut' repeated.
    Lol a ha haaaaa

    what if they made, like ****ing noises. Something like a Nissan Leaf could make low, short ****s and a superior being in his I8 could make full blown mega blast raspberries

    If they used the "Jaws" theme, you'd know they were getting closer as the beat got faster and the volume louder

    The tree huggers want ALL cars gone, no matter if they are electric or fossil fuel.
    Someone once described the car and it's negative impact on the earth as the planets worst plague.
