You might have hoped that the arrival of electric vehicles would make our towns and cities a much quieter place; no more revving cars, noisy lorries and clattering taxis to pollute our ears. As cool as that it, it did not work as Jaguar predicted it would since people keep looking into the sky instead of on the road when they hear the sound. This is ahead of new rules that force auto manufacturers to equip electric vehicles (EVs) with artificial noise generators, which come into effect next July.
The I-Pace's sound was tested by members of Guide Dogs for the Blind, the UK's leading charity for people affected by sight loss, as part of the testing undertaken by Jaguar.
The first major model to go full electric would be the XJ, and it's expected to debut in two years' time.
Jaguar engineers have developed the tech over the last four years and say the potentially life-saving system will make the transition to electric vehicles safer for blind, visually impaired and other vulnerable road users. The sound created is clearly audible outside the vehicle yet unnoticeable to those within. This is especially true at low speeds in town centres and vehicle parks.
JD Martinez holds no grudge against Astros, who released him

Jaguar said that its staff worked for almost four years to develop the flawless noise for its vehicles.
Engineers tested sounds in several environments, including an anechoic chamber (specialist echo-free room) and a number of urban scenarios, before settling on the final sound for the I-PACE. The sound will come from the speaker behind the grille and will change pitch and volume depending on the speed of the vehicle.
"We applaud Jaguar for being the first to launch an EV which meets standards before the new legislation even comes in and look forward to working with the company more in the future", John Welsman, Policy Business Partner (Travel & Mobility), Guide Dogs for the Blind, said. First and foremost, it can do a 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and yet, it can offer a claimed range of 470 km, thanks to its 90kWh battery which is made up of high energy density lithium-ion pouch cells. An all-new I-Pace would be rolled out in 2025, and by 2026, almost all Jaguar models would be all-electric.
