One concern I've heard about driving an electric car is how it might be shorted out if you drive through water. I've found that I actually have less worry about driving through water than when I drove an ICE car. --The regenerative breaking works just as well in all forms of weather (barring extremely hot or cold batteries). --The traction control works better than any other car I've driven. --The motor can't be ruined by sucking water into the air intake (there is no air intake). Granted, you still shouldn't drive into deep water, but there are very few vehicles that can take that sort of abuse. :tongue: Tesla Model S driving through a puddle.
