is a shortage of semiconductors for vehicles these days, so that some automobile factories have to be built for a while. As a result, vehicle shipments are also delaying, and consumers are deepening their concerns as companies are saying that they will ship cars quickly if they remove options that contain a lot of semiconductors.

Many of Hyundai Motor Company's electric car Ioniq 5 advance reservations will be available only next year.
This is largely due to the lack of vehicle semiconductors, but a so-called'minus option' card has emerged that allows the car to be shipped quickly, except for functions that contain a lot of semiconductors.

Hyundai Motor Company will stop the line at Ulsan Plant 4, which produces porters, for three days, and is considering whether Asan and Ulsan Plant 1 will stop again.
GM Korea already operates only half of its Bupyeong 2 plant, and Ssangyong Motor also stopped operating its Pyeongtaek plant for a week last month.
Hyundai and Kia Motors are doing their best by recording the highest sales ever recorded in the U.S. market in April following the first quarter. This month, the shortage of semiconductors is expected to disrupt production in earnest, which is expected to negatively affect sales performance.
