What happens if you drive an EV through a flood?

There is a good choice of electric cars but what happens when you drive through a ford or water?

I wouldn't drive through any deeper ford or water than you would a petrol or diesel car, but you needn't worry about the batteries. They're well protected and water can't get into the cells. No fish will be harmed.
