Important Flood Driving Safety Tips to Remember This Spring

As the snow finally melts for the last time – and the spring rains begin to fall – the risk of flash flooding is higher than ever. While it seems plausible to avoid floods altogether, it can be hard to predict when they will start. If you find yourself driving when a flood begins, keep these flood driving safety tips in mind:

Flood Driving Safety Tips

  • Never, ever attempt to drive through standing water on the road or even in a parking lot. Just 12 inches of water can make your car lose contact with the ground.
  • If you see any barricades that have been put up to protect people from flooding, respect those barricades.
  • If you must drive through some sort of puddle, drive slowly and keep your eyes peeled for floating debris.
  • Avoid any roads where power lines may have gone down to avoid electrocution.
  • Lastly, if you car becomes stuck in the water, abandon it. Get yourself to safety and then call for help.

Upcoming Hyundai Ioniq EV Range Announced: 110 Miles

Every year, it seems like electric vehicles become more and more impressive. And who is leading the pack? Hyundai – who just announced that the new Hyundai Ioniq EV range will be about 110 miles, achieved by just a single charge.

Hyundai Ioniq EV Range

The diverse new Hyundai Ioniq will be offered in three different forms: electric, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid. However you’d like to save fuel and money, there is a Hyundai Ioniq option for you.

We’ve also learned that the electric Ioniq will have four levels of regenerative braking, which the driver can switch between with paddles behind the steering wheel. The vehicle will also use an “eco-routing” system for navigation, aiming to save even more energy.

The hybrid and battery electric versions of the Hyundai Ioniq are scheduled to hit dealerships this year, while the plug-in hybrid variant should arrive early next year. Until then, if you’d like to check out a current Hyundai model – visit us anytime at Perry Hyundai.
