    EVs tend to have more interference on the radio than ICEs. BMW disabled the AM radio on the i3 because of the interference. The Model S and X is a bit better because the passenger compartment has a metal cage the i3 doesn't have (the body of the i3 is carbon fiber).

    In many cases better filters can be installed to filter out the interference, but pulse width modulated motors generate tons of electrical noise.
