As its initial entrée into the Canadian market, Fisker Automotive (www.fiskerautomotive.com) has partnered with established retailers to bring its uncompromised responsible luxury cars to locations in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.
In Vancouver, Fisker has partnered with the Fields Automotive Group, a family-owned company established in 1971. Fields operates BMW and Rolls-Royce dealerships from its Burrard Street location (http://fiskerofvancouver.com)
In Calgary and Toronto, Fisker has partnered with the Dilawri Group, which also owns MCL Motor Cars Vancouver, Jaguar, Land Rover, Bentley, Aston Martin and Porsche dealerships.
Fisker Vancouver reports that it has already sold out its supply of Karma models and has a waiting list for its $106,000 plug-in electric luxury Karma sedan.
In addition to Fisker of Calgary, the Dilawri Group will be placing a unique Fisker retail location, Fisker of Toronto, at the Shops at Don Mills, Toronto’s first open-air mall.
Individual retailer website, location and contact information can be found by clicking on ‘Find a Retailer’ at www.fsikerautomotive.com.
“Both Dilawri and Fields have the premium brand experience we want, and that the customers expect in launching a new luxury brand specializing in uncompromised responsible luxury,” said Matt Malfitano, director of North American Market Operations at Fisker.
Fisker will expand its presence in Canada as it ramps up Kama production and develops more clean-running, fuel-efficient premium luxury vehicle models.
The Canadian government envisions 500,000 plug-in vehicles on the road by 2018. To help this goal along, the provinces of British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec all offer purchase incentives that range in value from $5,000 to $8,500.
Additionally, Ontario offers unrestricted high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane access to plug-in cars, and Quebec will reimburse half the cost of charging stations for plug-in vehicle owners.
