Fisker expanding into CanadaThu, 02 Feb 2012
The Fisker Karma sedan will soon be available in Canada.
The California-based electric-car manufacturer has partnered with the Dilawri Group, Canada's largest automotive dealer group, and the Field Automotive Group.
“Both Dilawri and Fields have the premium-brand experience we want and that the customers expect,” Matt Malfitano, director of North American Market Operations at Fisker, said in a statement.
Initial locations will be in Toronto, Calgary, Alberta and Vancouver. Fisker plans to expand operations as Karma production develops.
The Canadian government, a proponent of plug-in vehicles, has said it hopes to have 500,000 on the roads by 2018. It offers incentives of $5,000 to $8,500 to plug-in-vehicle buyers.
