A New Tesla Video
Earlier we had reported a recent video about Tesla’s GA 4.5 assembly plant that was constructed just outside its Fremont plant’s main facility and how it is cranking away at building Tesla’s more popular models with plans to grow bigger and better.
Today, we are reporting another new video that explains how Tesla manages to make its vehicles so quiet.
This is especially important from a comfort point of view since an EV driven powertrain is significantly quieter than that of an ICE vehicle and consequently does not drown out other external noise sources like an ICE vehicle does. Because of this, factors like wind drag and driving without specialized tires possessing an internal baffle system, can result in some significant cabin noise that can be tiring to the driver and its passengers---think of the low roaring noise on a flight for example.
Benefits Aside from Sound Reduction
Tesla’s newest innovations in glass technology are created in a Glass Technology Center in Los Angeles where prototypes are created and tested. Not only are the latest glass designs innovative toward reducing sound, but also designed to significantly block UV radiation (up to 99%) without decreasing viewing for passengers and its multi-camera system; and, can support up to four times the weight of a Tesla in case of a rollover accident; or, in potential Tesla crashes as shown in this video collection of Tesla Dash Cam crashes.
To avoid any further spoilers, watch the video and learn how this “Tesla Glass: The Secret to a Quiet Cabin” YouTube video posted by Tesla.
