Sorry if this topic has been covered already - just a question I've been meaning to ask for while and havn't seen an answer to anywhere. Enyaq is on order and will probably arrive in the autumn when the weather turns again, so - if a road is flooded and the car has to go through a few metres of a very big and potentially reasonable deep puddle, can the Enyaq cope with that?
Thanks

Yes I found it coped extremely well in the wet and snow

I don’t particularly remember the puddle thing but with how much it weighs and how nicely it drives it really isn’t an issue at all

An EV will go through flood water, but remember wading depth can be limited by when the water comes into the car! It’s not a very high riding vehicle

I've seen the odd clip of EV's going through deep water, and seem to do better than many ICEs, however I've always thought it was a quick way to ruin any car, even if it survives.

Thanks ChangoMutney, I hope it never happens, just wanted to check if it's an absolute no-no, or whether in exceptional circumstances the car and the battery could survive.
