Tesla Model S Survives Driving Through Flooded Tunnel (VIDEO)

There’s a lot of concern about what would happen to electric cars while driving in a flood. Are electric vehicles more fragile in the water than those with internal-combustion engines?

This video from Russia shows a Tesla Model S driving through a flooded tunnel and survived unscathed.

According to Electrek, the Model S battery pack is sealed, though driving through a flood is really not recommended for any vehicle. Perhaps not having an air intake gives the electric car an advantage?
