Fake engine noise for Tesla EVs is Harman's sound synthesis tech hard at work

Harman could give your next EV some V8 rumble. Whether you want your car to sound like a bid ol’ V8 or a UFO, Harman’s hard at work making it happen. Electric car sound is nearly nonexistent. Fake engine noise is disliked by many, but it offers a level of character to the electric vehicle, both inside and out, and is a crucial safety feature. We visited Harmon to check out their sound synthesis tech and got a demo inside a Tesla Model S. Read more on this tech:

    My RC cars have sound modules plus I can download from their store different engine types from Inline 4 turbocharged to a
    V12 N/A sound. The rc car world is a few steps ahead.

    I like the Sci Fi sound. Why not make your car sound like it is in the movies?

    How about Spitfire Mark I for a car sound? Jay Leno has a video on Tube that shows his restored Packard Merlin engine. No airplane, just the 27 liter V-12 1650 HP engine.

    Sounds DO need to be incorporated otherwise the overall driving experience will be muted by the lack of audio feedback. The sound of our cars is sort of like the car's way of communicating to the driver and without it, it can be a very unsatisfying driving experience. Glad to see that this concept is being taken seriously and being developed properly.
