    Interesting that the repair cost is $1 over the full retail price of the car.
    i wonder how they calculated that.

    There's not really anything there that doesn't have to be replaced, except for the body. And they have to do it without a factory. I'm guessing they're gonna call that totaled.

    Any idea if the internals of the battery survived?

    Shame its only USA, i'd have a go at repairing it, if I could that is. Airbags not deployed, screen looks ok. Bit of elbow grease, bodge the electrics and Bobs your Uncle. :smile:

    Until you bring it to a service center to get all the electronics turned on and they refuse because its a salvage title.

    Usually a flooded ICE car means all the electronics have to be replaced and your good to go, so what does that mean on an electric car....

    Well the current bid is $25. I'd pay that and just pull the wheels and tires off and see about scraping the rest of the car.

    Looks like they had a WeatherTech rear mat. Guess it couldn't hold all the water:smile:

    They should have purchased the model with the pump.
