Tesla has started selling Model 3 in South Korea at prices starting at 52 million won (about 43,000 dollars) before subsidies. Buyers can look forward to subsidies from the state government and provincial governments totalling up to 20 million won.
Deliveries are expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2019. With the Model 3, the base price for a Tesla model is also falling significantly in Korea; the Model S and Model X were previously on sale at prices starting at 111 million won and 119 million won, respectively.
Model 3 is to be offered in three versions. The cheapest variant is (as in Europe) the Standard Range Plus. The long-range model with all-wheel drive costs at least 62 million won, the Model 3 Performance is available from 72 million won.
Tesla has only been active on the Korean market since March 2017. The carmaker does not provide any information on sales figures in the country. After all, 22 superchargers and 172 AC destination chargers were built during this time.
