Store #1 is referred to as the automaker’s Korean flagship location. It’s in the new  Starfield Hanam, a shopping mall located in Gyeonggi Province (see rendered image).

The second store is in Cheongdam-dong.

Korea Times reports:

“Visitors can see Tesla’s Model S 90D, the lone model available to Korean consumers at this point, at the store. Those who placed pre-orders for the vehicle can test-drive it. All purchases are made online where customers can customize their own vehicles.”

Pricing in South Korea for the Model S 90D starts at 121 million won ($105,000), but maxes out at 161 million won if all the option boxes are ticked.

Tesla plans to add other versions of the S (within a couple of months) and eventually even the Model X (by the end of 2017) to its lineup in South Korea.

First deliveries in South Korea are expected to take place starting this June.

A small Supercharger network and some Tesla destination chargers will be operational soon in South Korea.
