Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) is using an unfocused group to pick an artificially generated sound for their upcoming Focus electric vehicle. Ford posted four sounds on their Facebook social media Page to find out which one is the best. This past January, a law was enacted that required quiet hybrid vehicles to have some sort of artificial noise generator. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not clarified what kind of sound the hybrid vehicles should make yet. Below are the four sounds:

Test sound A

Test sound B

Test sound C

Test sound D
