Sales of electric vehicles tripled in the first half of this year compared to the same period last year.
According to the Korea Automobile Importers and Distributors Association, more than 11,000 electric cars were sold in the first six months of this year.
Hyundai's Ioniq hatchback was the most popular model, accounting for about 38 percent of sales, followed by GM's Chevrolet Bolt (26 percent).
Thanks to the growing popularity of eco-friendly cars among drivers, industry watchers expect sales of electric vehicles this year could reach 20,000 units.
