Running TV ads. Taking orders. And now setting up a network of dealerships. Fisker Automotive is acting like a real car company.
The company announced today that it's signed up its first group of 32 retailers. These retailers can be found in 17 states – Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, Virginia, and Wisconsin – and one Canadian Province, British Columbia (see the full list after the jump). Fisker hopes to have at least 40 dealers in the U.S. signed up by June. Deliveries of the $87,900 plug-in hybrid Karma model should begin at the end of this year, and Fisker hopes to sell 15,000 units a year once they get up to full production.
Like the luxury PHEVs themselves, the Fisker showrooms are going to be eco-aware, with natural and sustainable materials used throughout and a solar-powered car port available.
