Wow! Even Tesla is going to be doing it “Gangnam” Style!

America, watch what happens with Tesla Sales in South Korea, without dealers wining!

Teslas will sell like crazy in south Korea. Traffic is terrible and distances really arent that far so a limited supercharger network will cover thr whole country.

Taiwan? When?
