  • By Nam Hyun-woo Audi’s electric vehicle (EV), the e-tron 55 Quattro, is facing a setback in sales here, as Korea’s environment ministry is considering canceling the vehicle’s certification over the questionable range it is claimed to be able to travel on a single charge.
  • Audi launched the e-tron 55 Quattro here in July, after winning certification from the ministry declaring it a low emission vehicle by stating the electric SUV can drive 307 kilometers at an ordinary temperature, 23 degrees Celsius, and 306 kilometers at a subzero temperature, minus 7 degrees Celsius, on a single charge.
  • Hyundai Motor’s Ioniq Electric drives 405.6 kilometers in ordinary temperatures and 310.2 kilometers in subzero temperatures, and the Chevrolet Bolt EV drives 414 kilometers in ordinary temperatures and 273 kilometers in subzero temperatures.
