Electricity + Water =

I've enjoyed a certain amount of shadenfreude over Chevy Volt and Fisker spontaneous combustion, but hadn't given much thought as to what would happen should you find yourself in high water.


The Fisker battery pack sits pretty low in the car. It doesn't look like it would require anywhere near full submersion to cause problems.
Even before the fire, the battery discharge into the water might put some serious hurt on you.
I'm sure the Fisker engineers thought of this and have some safety feature built in, right?  right?
