Audi’s future e-tron models will cover long distances powered by practically silent electric motors, to ensure that pedestrians in urban settings will hear them, the brand has developed a synthetic solution: Audi e-sound.
Sound is an especially exciting aspect of a vehicle. Although it can be described in physical terms, there is no substitute for experiencing it firsthand. A car’s sound is emotional. The motor in an electric-powered e-tron is not an option, as it is too quiet and its high frequencies are not exactly melodious. Audi’s e-tron models will therefore feature a synthetic sound signature. The e-sound is played via a sturdy loudspeaker attached to the car’s undercarriage.
