If I were living in the capital (or any South Korean metropolitan area) and basically only needed a car for tooling around Seoul streets with an occasional jaunt into Kyŏnggi-do Province or Inch'ŏn, I'd totally get one of these:
Hyundai Motor Thursday unveiled South Korea's first full-speed electric car, designed to tap into the increasingly competitive electric auto market, hailed as the industry's future.I could use one of these in Hawaii as well, although this joint Korea-Hawaii offering (to be blogged later) also presents a very appealing option.
The new vehicle has a maximum speed of 130 kilometres (81 miles) per hour and can travel 140 kilometres on a single charge, Hyundai Motor said in a statement.
A Virtual Engine Sound System increases the vehicles' noise for the safety of pedestrians -- as is the case with some Japanese rivals.
*Yes, I know that Hyundai didn't build the electric car, as in the first one or the only one, but it is helping save it and I needed the definite article for symmetry with the title of the film, Who Killed the Electric Car?
