A method of emanating a sound from a vehicle comprising detecting an accelerator state, a brake state, and a transmission state of the vehicle, and emanating a take-off sound. The take-off sound includes changing emanation of a sound profile from a first sound pressure level to a second sound pressure level that is greater than the first sound pressure level, upon first detecting the accelerator state transitioned from an accelerator released state to an accelerator depressed state while the brake state indicates the brake released state and the transmission state indicates a motive state.

A method of emanating a sound from a vehicle comprising detecting a speed of the vehicle, and emanating a speed sound, including emanating a sound profile and changing at least one of a sound pressure level and a pitch of the sound profile in relation to the speed of the vehicle changing. The method further comprises ceasing emanation of the speed sound upon the speed of the vehicle increasing from below a first threshold to above the first threshold, and resuming emanation of the speed sound upon the speed of the vehicle decreasing from above a second threshold to below the second threshold, the second threshold being less than the first threshold.

A method of monitoring usage of a charging station includes collecting probe data from a plurality of electric vehicles. The probe data includes charging activity history. A usage value associated with a charging station is determined based on the collected probe data. The usage value associated with the charging station is provided to a requesting electric vehicle.

A user input activation method comprising operating in a deactivated mode in which a controller refrains from accepting input from a user input device, detecting a first presence condition at a first predetermined location, and detecting a second presence condition at a second predetermined location. The method further comprises changing, when the first presence condition and the second presence condition simultaneously exist, from operating in the deactivated mode to operating in an activated mode in which input from the user input device is accepted by the controller, and refraining from changing while the first presence condition and the second presence condition fail to simultaneously exist, and remaining in the activated mode while the first presence condition continues to exist.

A transverse link has an inboard side and an outboard side. A steering knuckle has an upper end, a wheel supporting section and a lower end. The lower end is pivotally coupled to the outboard side of the transverse link. A strut has an upper end and a lower end. An upper knuckle breakaway structure attaches the upper end of the steering knuckle to the lower end of the strut. The upper knuckle breakaway structure has a frangible part that releases the upper end of the steering knuckle from the lower end of the strut upon application of a prescribed rearward directed force. A transverse link breakaway structure couples the inboard side of the transverse link to a lower suspension support structure such that upon application of the prescribed rearward directed force the inboard side of the transverse link is released from the lower suspension support structure.
