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."
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.
