The Tesla Model S has already proven electric cars can be fun. And sophisticated. And trendy. But there was something no one ever asked it to prove: if it could work as a submarine. But one of its owners has decided to test it in a flooded tunnel. In Russia, where else?
Check how impressive it is when the car noses into the water. The video gives us the impression the wheels have lost any touch with the ground. When it sinks back, the car gets out of the water.
Besides being extremely curious to watch, this video probably shows one of the main advantages of having an electric car instead of a combustion engine machine: no risk of hydrolock. Even if you should have to pray for rust-free electric connectors and for an absurdly good insulation, so that no water invades the interior of the car or one of the two trunks of the Model S.
