(2020 Soul EV Limited) Whirring Sound at Low Speed Accel

Tue Aug 17, 2021 12:53 pm

Hello folks!

In the last week I've noticed a whirring sound when accelerating from a standstill, which fades out as I gain speed. I don't hear it when decelerating (I think). It's a new sound, previously my Soul EV has been wonderfully silent to drive.

I haven't noticed any change in the handling or other driving characteristics. I'm about to go on a long road trip (1800Km) and wonder if I should be concerned enough to take it in beforehand, or it can wait until I get back.

I did see someone elses post back in May that sounded similar in description, but their recording of the sound had expired.

I welcome any thoughts and advice.

Could the sound you are hearing possibly be the sound they added to protect deaf pedestrians?
