Impact of music on electric vehicles

Whether you are singing along to Adele, have the windows down and The Weeknd blaring out or are cruising to classical, music influences our driving behaviour and style.

Now, for drivers of Electric Vehicles (EVs), a new study from Kia reveals the type of music they drive to can also significantly impact the battery range of their car.

The results were eye-opening. In short, if you want to go further, listen to classical music; if you’re not worried about your battery range dropping a little more quickly, put on some more up-tempo pop, hip-hop or even soul.

Aston spoke to Dr Duncan Williams, lecturer in acoustics & audio engineering at University of Salford.
