The interior is COMPLETELY gutted! It isn't as loud as the camera makes it sound, though. It amplifies certain sounds. It is actually quieter than my regular car, as least to my ears.

That's a great question about the efficiency. I'm not sure. Maybe

the average V_in*I_in = V_out*I_out + HEAT_LOSS?

I need to think about that one.

I had to delete the video and re-upload it! It got muted on youtube because I had a song on there that was a copyright violation I guess. That's a first! Man, they are so touchy these days!
