Interesting video. I'd be curious to see how a Prius, Leaf or Tesla compare.

The symptoms she describes are similar to what I've heard described by someone sensitive to microwave ovens, so it's interesting to find that EV EMF is in a similar spectrum.

meter (µT meter ?) move only when AC is ON and at front of ventilation (ions ? static electricity from particules ?).
unplug the ionizer (ionic cluster) : viewtopic.php?p=4414#p4414

that why, in my first answer, i have pointed to drive with opened windows (ventilation in OFF position).

No, the video you mentioned is about the 2015 Kia Soul EV and doesn't show the measurements when DRIVING the car. I'm the one who created the YouTube Channel "EMF in Electric Cars".

I came across this older thread and wanted to share my experience:

— I just got a 2018 Kia Soul EV+ and it’s making high frequency pitching noise all the time the vehicle is on.

— While test driving, I was wearing a hat which was covering my ears and couldn’t hear that tinnitus style noise.

— It’s coming from the dashboard area. I played with all the available settings, including the screen brightness, but nothing helped. The high frequency electronic hissing sound is there all the time and is really annoying.

— Dropped it off at the dealer’s, their service department is claiming they can’t hear anything. :)

— I have driven other EVs for over 5 years before Kia Soul EV. Most recently, Ford Focus Electric. None of them were making high-frequency sounds whatsoever. I have normal hearing, no sensitivity to anything.

Just a thought, maybe your sensations were caused by a similar high-frequency noise but you just couldn’t hear/register it?

I will look into the ways to record the sound and share here.
