I would like to know if a battery-powered electric vehicle such as a Tesla Model 3 automobile can be driven through a dust storm.

Since static electricity could short out engines and car radios, motorists driving through dust storms dragged chains from the back of their automobiles to ground their cars..." https://www.history.com/news/10-things-you-may-not-know-about-the-dust-bowl
