Nissan has created a world-first lullaby specifically designed for electric vehicles to help parents send their young children to sleep in the absence of the sleep-inducing frequencies produced by internal combustion engines.

Nissan's 'Dream Drive' lullaby mimics the frequencies produced by a combustion engine to create a hypnotic soundscape
Around 70% of parents in the U.K. believe it's the movement of the vehicle that sends their child to sleep, but research reveals that the soothing sound frequencies of internal combustion engines are also a major contributor to children nodding off in the car. 

As increasing numbers of drivers switch to zero-emission electric vehicles, Nissan identified a new opportunity to ensure parents can still utilise the drive home to get their child to sleep, without the carbon cost of a combustion engine.

Designed in collaboration with Sound Designer and Sleep Coach Tom Middleton, Nissan's 'Dream Drive' lullaby blends the sounds of the Nissan Leaf with the frequencies produced by a humming combustion engine to create a hypnotic soundscape to help send young children to sleep in the car.

Made up of five three-minute tracks, the manufactured soundscape mimics the peaceful audio frequencies of a humming combustion engine, but without the carbon cost.
