<Anchor> As the
amount of semiconductors required to make cars is insufficient worldwide, some factories in Korea have also been shut down. Not only that, but now you can get a car faster if you take out a feature that contains a lot of semiconductors, and there is an option that lowers the price of the car.
Reporter Han Sang-woo covered it.
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.
[Car salesperson: It seems that it will be a little difficult to get it within this year. (And that guidance.) Semiconductors, except for a lot into features or options can be shipped the car a little faster -
Hyundai remote control devices out what the person in the back seat burned, functions and difference tells the like if the door is opened It has been announced that quick delivery is possible by subtracting the two functions that move the car back and forth.
As a customer, I have deep concerns.
You need to get your car quickly before the subsidies for EVs run out, but it's not easy to give up an option that includes some safety features.
Kia Motors K8 and Carnival can also quickly receive vehicles by removing some features.
It is a temporary prescription to pass the so-called semiconductor barley pass, but there is no plan to know when the breath will open.
Hyundai Motor Company will stop the line at Ulsan Plant 4, which produces porters, for three days from today (5th), and is considering whether Asan and Ulsan Plant 1 will also stop operating again.
GM Korea already operates only half of its Bupyeong 2 plant, and Ssangyong Motor stopped operating its Pyeongtaek plant for a week last month.
Hyundai-Kia Motors is making good strides by recording the highest sales ever recorded in the US market in April following the first quarter. This month, the shortage of semiconductors is expected to disrupt production in earnest, which will negatively affect sales performance.
