Road noise concerns

Our current vehicle makes it impossible to talk with someone in the back seat at highway speeds.

Even driving in higher end cars, the road noise from the lovely rutted Washington highways, is still there often eclipsing the engine and wind noise.

So my concern is that without engine and wind noise (thank you 0.22Cd) will the road noise be even more apparent when trying to have conversations?

Most of the noise seems to come from the wheel wells. I really hope that Tesla shares this concern and designs the wheel wells with sufficient sound dampening.

It certainly won't be eliminated, but I would bet that the Model S will have the least amount of cabin noise of nearly any other car.

I sincerely wish that a standard quality measure for cars was "interior decibels" measured on some "standard highway" at "standard speed." Careful inclusion of sound-deadening materials and careful engineering should result in some easily communicated results!

As the Roadster demonstrates, eliminating engine noise does not guarantee a quiet ride. My wife and I both value very quiet interiors, and the only way to find one is to drive in lots of cars.

I agree Robert. That would be a great specification for the reviewers and auto magazines to add to the list. 1/4 mile, 0-60, Cd, and decibels at 60mph with the roof closed and windows up.

The road noise was one of three reasons I didn't buy a Roadster.

According to your experience, which models did you find particularly quiet?
