I've come across a zoe thats been flooded. Wondering if its worth making an offer and stripping it down.
Anyone know if the battery is sealed/waterproof or if it is likely to be destroyed?

Is it battery owned or rental Zoe?

The battery is waterproof unless it's been mechanically damaged, but as @Hermit Dave says that may not be your problem. Just worry about all the rest of the electrics.
Note that cars tend to survive being flooded when stationary better than when being driven into water. What depth did it get to?

If it's the one on Copart, it looks like the battery has been removed anyway. I'd want to see that in the flesh before making a bid on it.
