Porsche, Nissan and more car brands to be banned in South Korea


South Korea has announced its plans to disallow sales of three Porsche models, two Nissan models and one BMW model after finding errors in certification documents for the carmakers’ imported vehicles.


South Korea’s environment ministry said in a statement it also plans to fine the local units of the foreign carmakers a combined 6.5 billion won (USD5.56 million) after finding certification errors in two Nissan, one BMW and seven Porsche models.


Out of the seven Porsche models, four have discontinued sales, the ministry said. The decisions on the sales halt and fines will be finalized in December after a hearing, the environment ministry said.
