Do you mean during acceleration or just during regular driving? Above 60mph (100kph) mostly I've just heard road noise, though you can hear the rotors spinning in the motor at higher speeds.

Some of the earlier cars and test drive vehicles also apparently had a strange reverberation that came from an incorrectly aligned rear hatch (it was able to be fixed by adjusting a couple of screws, but it seemed to have never been addressed on test vehicles). On the two production vehicles (both produced after January) that I have spent a lot of time in, I did not hear it.
