Sound de­ci­sion

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

Jaguar de­signed the I-pace to hon­our the first prin­ci­ples of driv­ing en­thu­si­asts, in­clud­ing the way it sounds. In ad­di­tion to the nat­u­ral whine from a pair of elec­tric mo­tors, the Dig­i­tal Sound Scape feeds an ar­ti­fi­cial noise through to the cabin via the stereo sys­tem. The level of aug­men­ta­tion can be al­tered and is louder when the drive mode is switched to Dy­namic. At its most vo­cal, the re­sult is a weirdly ap­peal­ing blend of elec­tric mo­tor whis­tle, Jet­sons hover car and Freight­liner ex­haust brake rum­ble.
