City streets without car engine noise? How would that sound like?

Volkswagen tried to check this out in its latest video "e-mobility – Enjoy The Silence" with all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars.

We are not sure whether we will ever get chance to enjoy this silence, as there are people who intend to make electric cars louder by adding synthetic sounds.

"A busy roundabout, the electric vehicle from Volkswagen and a children’s choir – a unique combination, that has to be seen and heard to be believed! After all, Enjoy The Silence offers much more than a spectacular musical experience, but also a preview of a bright new future, one with less traffic noise. In addition to being sustainable and efficient, electric vehicle have yet another benefit: they’re practically noise-free."
