Hello Outlander drivers.
I have recently bought a 2014 GX4h used vehicle, my first venture into electric motoring and I am very pleased
with it. I have had a read of most of the comments, queries and replies posted on this forum but have not seen
any mention of what would happen in the unfortunate situation of ending up in deep flood water?
Bearing in mind that even if the traction battery is isolated with a safety switch the battery terminals would
still be live with high voltage at about 300 volts. If submerged this would short circuit the battery and cause a
very high discharge and danger.
Soon when the motoring masses go electric it will happen. Happy motoring.
