^You get use to the lack of noise very quickly. I think people will still buy combustion cars for the noise, gears etc, just like people still ride horses and go to steam engine meets. We have all grown up been conditioned to link a loud V8 etc = excitement/speed. But the reality is at any speed over 50mph all you hear is road nosie in any car. The next generation will see engine noise as something that the old guys with walking sticks and on comodes keeps on talking about, but I doubt many (if any) will care. I can tell you from first hand expereicne all 5-6 years are more excited to see our Tesla than anything else when visting our house. I almost feel guilty about the amount of pestering my friends get from their kids about why mummy/daddy cannot get rid of their Audi/Merc etc and get Tesla instead.....I say almost, because as an EV convert I'll take any tool/path that increase EV uptake, pester power included.
