I've not heard any reverse nor forward noisemakers on Teslas. Numerous other EVs and PHEVs don't either (e.g. gen 1 Volt and Spark EV).
But, some others do (e.g. VPNS on Toyota hybrids, PHEVs and EVs starting with model year 2012 but the sound isn't different for forward and reverse). Fiat 500e has a noisemaker. There are others.
