POLL: Should an electric car be quieter or noisier?

with one comment


At ZAP we are continually educating people about the many benefits of all-electric vehicles, chiefly that they’re quieter than internal combustion. Now we are reading that blind activists are lobbying for a law that electric and hybrid cars must make more noise. The US Senate has unanimously passed a bill to study if electric and hybrid cars are unsafe to the blind and pedestrians because they are so quiet. But not all blind people agree with this statement, according to Edmunds.com: “It would be better for everyone if all the cars were quieter,” says blind advocate Brian Bushway. Watch the video above to see how much noise electric cars make, and please take our poll whether you think they should make more noise. Edmunds.com InsideLine

  1. Electric autos should be very quiet. It is about time things like autos, motorcycles and trucks get quieter. ZAAP thank God you guys have hung in there so long and finally your stock is raising. I am 60 years of age and I will buy a ZAAP auto and a motorcycle when you build then in the USA! I am from Wisconsin and we have a great place to build them and that is the old GM plant in Janesville Wisconsin. I have nothing to do with auto building and live in Cottage Grove Wi.
