Tesla Semi makes a cool sound as it accelerates
Sound in the video on this page:

The sound of the future, as the page points out.

He sounded almost giddy this truck had traveled over 3,000 miles. WTF? That's nothing for a big rig.

That's almost a weeks work.

I'd like to thank Frontier for preventing me from seeing the future. So is it more of a whhooosh or a wa wa wa wa or a Trump Admin Whomp?

xoxoxoBruce 09-23-2018 11:59 AM

A tone of increasing pitch.

Undertoad 09-23-2018 12:20 PM

A little like some light rail taking off?

glatt 09-23-2018 02:15 PM

Sounds like Metro.

Happy Monkey 09-23-2018 03:57 PM

I'm guessing it's the sound of a drive train, absent the sound of an internal combustion engine.

xoxoxoBruce 09-23-2018 08:53 PM

Yeah, that's the ticket, a trolly, or subway. My buddy said an electric drill.

A Tesla semi can accelerate much faster than a diesel truck, but will it want to, or will it choose range as what it wants to achieve?* If it accelerates more slowly, I think it can be pretty silent, like the cars.

*I ask, as if the vehicle is making the decision.

I couldn't get the video to load.

lumberjim 09-24-2018 01:05 PM

it sounds to me like a muted version of a wind up car.

fargon 09-25-2018 02:24 PM

Cool, Thank You Sir.

Gimmee the deep-throated growl of a Cat C15 or a DD-16 any day. Black smoke out of the stacks a plus.

I'll take a big-block Chebbolet, two fours, singing a high song. From about, oh, say, 5,000 rpm, and building.

And no smoke out the pipes, if you please.:D
