But there are some people who do find the Nissan Leaf high pitched whine noise irritating, as discussed in other threads. It personally doesn't bother me, I kind of like it.
But some people really dislike it.
If it is technically unavoidable (or not economic to avoid / minimize it in the Leaf design), Nissan might need to consider the active noise reduction discussed in the video.

It doesn't bother me either but could easily be fixed with passive sound deadener material under the hood as there are limited frequencies to block.

Adding to the list:
Fan Belt replacement
Altenator belt replacement
