Ford will shortly introduce the 2012 electric Focus, and Ford wants it to make noise.
Not just noise in sales, but real noise.
When I recently did a test drive of the Chevrolet Volt, Steve Scott of Midway Chevrolet was able to park the car behind me without my knowledge, it was that quiet.
According to this article from Reuters, Ford is choosing to give its electric vehicles a distinctive sound. And we are asked to vote.
The sounds are not radically different. One sounds like a gasoline car; the others have Jetsons overtones.
One problem: Ford ways they want our "feedback," but they don't say how to get feedback to them. Maybe we should use their Facebook page.
