Hi, I’m new to the forum and EVs but just wanted to hear about anyone’s experiences of driving through floods in the EGolf please? Thanks in advance ?

I’ve been through a few, probably up to about sill height/centre of the wheels?

I felt a lot more confident going through it than in an equivalent ICE, in fact I used to switch my old GTE to e-mode before attempting to drive through it.

Just be aware that in almost any depth of flood water you can’t see hidden obstacles or missing manhole/drain covers etc, and if it’s flowing water only a few inches can sweep your vehicle away into trouble.

My first choice is always to avoid it, but I’m happy to drive through it if I need to, subject to the caveats above.

ps welcome!
