Too bad it wasn't a production trim Mach-E. They upgraded it so much that I don't even think it is remotely close to what we will be driving. 1400hp & 7 motors? Think I am missing a 1 in the hp for my premium & 6 motors. A slightly modified GT would have been nice.

OK so I am confused - they talked about how quiet it was - what was the scree sound? The individual motors on the wheels? or maybe they added that sound? My current vehicle Is near silent in operation and I have no doubt that the production Mach E will also be silent.

I want 399 miles of range with 1,400 HP on 56.8Kwh :)
Now if some software engineer could program the ice sounds to torque application and make it user selectable like an Apple Watch face that would be cool. Then all you would need is a rumble seat.

Technically easy to do. Does the non-technical stake holders (sales, marketing...) want to add that in is a completely different story.

That's the sounds of tires and the electric motors spinning. They are flooring the accelerator pedal most of the time. When you cruise you don't do that.

If you watch any electric vehicle race from the outside, you basically hear tire noise.

Here's the Yasa motors used on a Piles Peak race. Quiet, since they don't skid the tires for this type of race.

The screaming banshee sound comes from military grade non-lethal weaponized speakers.

I read speculation that it came from straight-cut gears used on this model.

I think when they normally drive ICE cars like he did at the end, they use the audio cues from the engine to know when to perform different maneuvers. These are not the same on this 1400.

The Mach-E 1400's diffuser is probably the first to include speaker-grille perforations, behind which lies an LRAD 100X military loudspeaker that can deliver the soundtrack of your choice at drive-Noriega-from-his-compound amplitude. Everyone seems to expect a high-pitched electronic "Screeeee!" but may we suggest Van Halen?
