    I think it's best Tesla doesn't make promises as far as flood performance goes. The assumption with just about any car without a snorkel should be "your car will be destroyed by a flood." Other manufacturers don't make promises because many different things can go wrong depending on how the car is flooded.

    Even though the battery is sealed in the Model S, there are plenty of other electronics exposed at varying heights in the car.
