The acoustics of electric vehicles become increasingly important during development. Without the internal combustion engine noise and due to new noise sources, like electric motors or battery cooling, several noise phenomena are recognized during operation which have a direct influence on comfort. In this article, the supplier hofer eds compares the NVH characteristics of three electric vehicles.

Boundary Conditions and Requirements

Acoustics are increasingly important in modern cars, as they are a significant factor for the comfort of the vehicle occupants. Neither an outstanding driving experience, nor a beautiful interior, nor impressive performance are much of a consolation when faced with constant buzz and noise while driving. One of the earliest points of contact with a car is already based on acoustics: The sound of opening and closing doors should evoke the feeling of quality and not sound tinny or rattly. Still, nothing will stir up emotions and passion quite like the sound of...
