No. Just no. Noise pollution days need to be behind us along with the associated dementia in large city mostly tailpipe pollution. I've had numerous occasions where I notice people slowing down or speeding up and rolling down their window just to listen to the absence of what they expect to hear. Time to leave foolish things in the past.I happened to stumble across a YouTube video of a dodge introduction of their new electric challenger. Apparently, their market differentiator is going to be that they’ve developed a manual transmission for the car, and they’ve developed a proprietary system for it to make very loud “electric motor/combustion motor revving” sounds. You’d have to hear it. It doesn’t sound precisely like an internal combustion engine, but it definitely sounds like someone was trying to synthesize the sound of an internal combustion engine - LOUDLY! If ford offered that kind of sound effect for the Mustang Mach E, would you use it? I sure wouldn’t. It was obnoxious.
