A video appeared on the Web with tests of new electric cars by an American company for water resistance. To do this, cars drove through a deep puddle with a level up to the middle of the wheels. Tests were conducted at the Gigafactory 3 factory in Shanghai.

On the Web, there are occasional misconceptions about the resistance of electric cars to water. Everyone is afraid of a combination of electricity and moisture. Moreover, a powerful battery is located in the bottom of the car. But on the Web there were fresh internal tests of Tesla, which tested the reliability of their cars in deep puddles. The video was shot at the new Chinese gigafactory in Shanghai, where new cars are already being produced.

It is also worth noting that companies and enthusiasts are constantly trying to dispel myths about electric cars. Earlier, several companies, including Jaguar and Ford, conducted similar public tests. In addition, on the Web you can find several videos with overcoming deep fords, and even swims in the ponds of Tesla cars.


All electrical connections are hermetically and reliably protected from moisture, dust and mechanical damage. In addition, electric cars are equipped with automatic safety systems that disconnect battery power in critical situations.
