Nissan LEAF® Electric Cars Are Low on Noise
Nissan LEAF® electric cars are friendly to environmental and public health even though they contribute more to noise pollution than their original design intends, according to The Electric Car Guide: Nissan LEAF®.
Noise pollution belongs on the list of environmental and public health contaminants along with air, land and water pollution since noise is aging, disruptive and stressful. Drivers, passengers and pedestrians who criticize conventional vehicles for moving parts, revved engines, road vibrations and wind drag call electric cars silent killers that move soundlessly. Pressure applied to and removed from the pedal drive the Nissan LEAF® into a silent acceleration from, or a soundless deceleration to, a standstill within seconds.
Drivers expect silent starts and soundless stops from the Nissan LEAF® even though some legislation requires electric cars to make contributions, albeit minimalist, to noise pollution.
