For the sale of cars driven by electricity increase these should improve two of their critical points. The first and most obvious, is the low autonomy you still have and the second is that its price is still high in comparison to the rest of the car. Some countries, like the united States or South Korea, are helping their citizens to acquire this kind of cars, but it seems that the measures taken could change for the benefit of their local brands.
South Korea established a aid for the purchase of electric vehicles up to $ 18,000 but the rules that must be met to receive them yet it seems that they are in the air. As have informed the authorities of the country the sale of the Tesla Model 3 and BYD e6 have been fired and it seems that they are not very happy with this situation. Therefore, they decided to change the conditions of obtaining of these grants to discourage the purchase of these vehicles.
In a first moment the authorities had not established the time should recharge the battery of these cars, as nor mention what type of shots they should do it. However now things have changed, and have established a recharge time of 10 hours maximum using a socket and normal current. With this modification the Model 3 and e6 are left out of the aid and, therefore, both firms would be reduced their sales.
we Must take into account that South Korea is one of the main highest number of reservations of the Model 3 and therefore the authorities want instead of buying electric vehicles of high range produced in the outer, they are fixed in local models as the Ioniq, electric. In addition, BYD also will benefits from this measure, because, being a car made in China the authorities are also not in agreement that this type of vehicles coming from this country.
What is clear is that with this measure want to increase sales of electric vehicles in the country, although it seems that they want to protect their car industry more than their fellow citizens.
