    GM Korea's Bolt electric car has succeeded in traveling the 470.2 km from Seoul to Jeju Island on a single charge.

    That was significantly longer than the government-certified distance of 383 km, and due to skilled driving the car still had 2.9 km of power left.

    A GM Korea spokesman said Sunday, "The range of an electric car can vary according to terrain and driving habits."

    A driver arrives in Jeju on Saturday after a test-run of GM Korea's Bolt electric car.

    The stunt was organized by EVuFF, a gathering of electric car owners in Korea, who drove the Bolt from Yangjae-dong in southern Seoul on Sunday to Sogwipo on Jeju Island, which currently hosts an international EV expo.

    GM Korea has been taking pre-orders for the Bolt since last week.
