The story goes that last week, a Tesla Model S drove through a flooded tunnel in Kazakhstan.
Musk failed to indicate the specifics about what makes the Model S buoyant enough to float. Yet as an electric vehicle, the Model S does not rely on air like an internal combustion engine so, in theory, the car’s systems should be able to operate underwater (or on water) as long as they’re properly sealed against the water pressure.
We *def* don’t recommended this, but Model S floats well enough to turn it into a boat for short periods of time. Thrust via wheel rotation.
