【马斯克称特斯拉Model S可像船一样短暂漂浮】随着夏季来临，各地暴雨冰雹等强对流天气日益频繁，许多城市遭遇内涝，很多车辆泡在水中无法动弹。不过如果你买的是一辆特斯拉Model S，就不用担心了。马斯克周末在Twitter上证实，Model S在遭遇大水时可以像船一样漂浮在水面一段时间。
Elon Musk: Tesla Model S floats, can be a boat for short amount of time
Your Model S can be a "boat" -- but Tesla doesn't recommend it.
Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk confirmed in a tweet on Sunday the all-electric Model S "floats well enough to turn it into a boat for short periods of time."
While Musk doesn't recommend taking advantage of the feature by going to your local lake, the confirmation came following a Model S driving through a flooded tunnel in Russia. It could be a nice safety feature to help you out of some tricky situations.
Musk said the thrust comes from the Model S' wheel rotation, so your vehicle isn't just dead in the water.
Musk, who is very outspoken on Twitter, added: "Am still planning to do a sports sub car that can drive on roads. Just a side project." He did not give a timeline when it may launch.
