Everyone knows background noise is not a hearing aids best friend. That goes for interior/exterior car noise when driven. Now before I buy a EV I need to see bottom line prices come down to say $30,000 - $35,000 range and a solid 400 miles in between battery charges. Both those targets should happen in one to two years.
With that said has anyone driven a EV or been a passenger and seen (heard) a significant reduction in road noise, interior cabin noise? With no engine EV should be substantially quieter when accelerating and I assume when cruising, but I’ve never been in one during operation. Wind noise is going to be a constant but I have to wonder if people with hearing aids might choose a EV over a gas engine, due to less exterior noise penetrating the car cabin area.
