So I was just imagining a few years from now EV's are much more common on the road, and I'm reading a planes, trains, and automobiles book to kid. Now you gotta make the obligatory car sounds with kids, except... errr... what sound DO electric cars make? I can't exactly go "vroom vroom!" anymore. :p

For that matter, I have trouble just describing the sound any EV makes! Any suggestions? (And don't say silence, that's cheating!) :D

Lol EV's go hmmmmmmm....! I'm especially stumped by how to describe the acceleration of a Tesla. There is a very distinct higher-pitched hum that I think sounds like the Millennium Falcon going into hyperdrive.

Shhhhhhhh (its quiet in here).....lol
*Crickets* :p

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I remember that's how one automotive journalist described the Nissan Leaf's sound when accelerating.
