Tesla to Begin Sale of Cars In South Korea in May 2017

It looks like Korean motorists will have a high end electric car choice available to them in May:

Tesla completed the manufacturer registration process to sell cars in Korea on Wednesday, putting it on track to begin operations here within the first half of this year.

“Tesla plans to bring its test product into the country by this month and begin sales in May,” said an official from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, which is in charge of the registration process.

The only step left for the automaker is to report basic specs of the model it plans to sell at least 10 days before sales begin, a relatively simple step compared to previous hurdles.   [Joong Ang Ilbo]

You can read more at the link, but South Korea I believe is a perfect market for electric cars considering the short driving distances to get around the country.

  1. Yeah, order it now, pay the deposit, and maybe get the car in 5 years.
