Here is a collection of the different sounds made by components in the i-MiEV. Most of these videos are pretty quiet, so you may need to turn the volume up a bit. PM me if you are interested in any additional sounds.
1. AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alert System):
2. Battery Fan (engaged for 5 seconds at plug-in, runs during quick charge)
3. Motor/Controller/Charger coolant pump (plus a shot of the drivetrain):
4. Brake Vacuum Pump (this video is of the original/loud pump. The newer, quieter pumps sound the same, just quieter. The pump activates for about a second at startup.):
