South Korea fines Tesla $2.2 million

A 2.85 billion won fine would be imposed on Tesla Incorporated by South Korea’s antitrust regulator the Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC), for failing to tell its customers about the shorter driving range of its electric vehicles (EVs) in low temperatures.

The bases for fine according to the KFTC was due to Tesla exaggerating the driving ranges of its vehicles on a single charge, their fuel cost-effectiveness compared to petrol vehicles and the performance of its superchargers on its official local website since August 2019 until recently.

As stated in a statement by the KFTC, Tesla vehicles’ cold weather performance dropped to 50.5% of what they were advertised online. The Tesla website provides various tips on winter driving, however it does not make mention of the loss of driving range in sub-zero temperatures.
