Biseulsan Firefly electric car starts operating.

Biseulsan, Daegu, where beautiful Rhododendron weyrichii blooms in spring!

Many tourists visit every spring, when flowers boom, to the Korean Rosebay Habitat famous in Korea.

Some people give up the attractions because in order to visit tourist spots such as Three-story Stone Pagoda of DaegyeonsaTemple Site, Geumsu-am Observatory, Biseulsan Block Stream and the Korean Rosebay Habitat, you have to walk up to 1,000 m above sea level.

But since Biseulsan’s new mode of transportation, the “Biseulsan Firefly Electric Car,” began operations from the 28th of last month, you can now conveniently travel.

It is Korea’s first electric car that operates in mountainous regions, thus it is harmless to the environment while it provides convenience to the people.
