Take into consideration, the recording is up close to the speaker under the vehicle at ‘idle’. Acoustics change when hearing it standing next to the vehicle and when vehicle is in motion (Reflection, reverberation, dispersion, ambient noise and Doppler effect)That pedestrian alert sound its pretty annoying to listen to lol. I guess that means it'll do its job effectively.
Yeah they got some really close up shots of the speaker and other parts of the car. Also, have we seen the California Route 1 badge before or is that new?Take into consideration, the recording is up close to the speaker under the vehicle at ‘idle’.

I really cannot wait to experience this vehicle up close.
Since these photos are from inside the plant, this video also hints that the factory is closer to production than i would have thought.
I don’t think the sound in the video is accurate. Its supposed to change based on drive modes and speed.I was believing that the sound would be like an ICE sport car! Do you know if we could get any sound of our choice instead of this?
Interesting, thanks for sharing that.No, i meant disguise. Its more of an overlay, though.
The US regulation (FMVSS No. 141) has specific guidelines about the frequencies, dB, modulation, etc, of an EVs generated sound. They also have a “sameness” clause based on make/model that does not allow for trim differences (MMe GT would sound the same as a Select trim), user selection, etc.
According to the interview (I believe it was with Darren Palmer of Ford) Fords solution was to generate sound that met the requirement, but overlay additional sounds to produce unique experiences.
based on reviewing petitions submitted in 2018, an addendum was recommended by the NHTSA in September 2019 to allow for sound variations and user selection, as long as they met the rest if the “sameness” clauses. It has not yet been adopted into the regulation, although its expected to.
