Aside from a faint ethereal whistle, EVs don't make any noise when they run, but safety regulations stipulate that must produce some sound to warn people they're coming. Monster's E-Runner has five speakers fitted (including a carbon-fibre sub) and for the brief time he had on the hill, he played the engine noise from last year's very noisy, very petrol-powered Suzuki SX4.
