Hyundai said it is accepting early orders only through its official online channel, the first such attempt by a Korean automaker, to reflect growing demand for contactless car purchases amid the pandemic.

The Casper measures in at 3595mm long, 1595mm wide and 1575mm high, and comes with a 1.0-liter multi-point injection engine or a 1.0-liter gasoline direction injection engine.
It is priced between 13.8 million and 18.7 million won ($11,850-15,940) in the domestic market. (Yonhap)
