Milltek’s fake exhausts now available for Tesla EVs
Milltek, a well-known German vendor of performance exhaust systems, has designed a few of these specifically for the all-electric Tesla Model S, 3, X, and Y. What’s the big idea?
Actually, the idea itself is sound (sorry for the pun). Many electric car owners can’t get past the feeling that their internal combustion engine is malfunctioning if they don’t hear any sounds coming from it. Others complain that driving in silence is boring. Others yet argue, quite reasonably, that pedestrians need at least some kind of audible warning that a car is approaching. This is precisely what the fake exhausts are for, and Milltek delivers these in multiple versions capable of up to a dozen different sounds.
Watch the video to see (and hear) such a unit on a Tesla Model 3. The $2,000 upgrade does a decent job imitating the hum of a naturally aspirated V8 and adds an exhaust tip at the rear (multiple tips also being an option).
