Fisker Now In Quebec

Fisker has added a fourth Canadian dealer for its extended-range electric Karma in Montreal bringing the total to 79 independent retail locations between the U.S., Europe and Canada.

The new Fisker of Montreal showroom is the first dealer in Quebec for the 400-horsepower, 981 pound-feet torque vehicle, and will be added to an existing 17-brand line-up that also includes Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, BMW, and Lexus.

“This new Fisker brand will fit perfectly within our premium brand portfolio. With its elegance and green power, Fisker will add a new level of diversity to the range of vehicles already available in our prestigious dealership,” said Gad Bitton, president of Holand Automotive Group who founded the dealership with business partner Norman Hébert, president and CEO of Groupe Park Avenue. “It is a source of pride for us to be the first and only group to offer this innovative brand in Quebec, a brand that will make heads turn while taking a proactive stance towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”

Quebec’s Drive Electric Program considers the Karma a plug-in hybrid, thus buyers are eligible for an $8,000 rebate. The program also provides up to $1,000 more toward Fisker’s 240-volt Convenience Charger, which cuts charge times in half. The car also qualifies for a Quebec Electric Vehicle license plate, which gives access to parking spaces reserved for electric vehicles equipped with charging stations.

Fisker also has retailers in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, 28 in Europe, 47 in America, and will soon have dealers in China and the Middle East. The new Montreal showroom opened Tuesday this week in anticipation of the Montreal Grand Prix. It is located at 5150 DeSorel (Phone 514-738-3030), and Fisker said it is pleased with the new arrangement with “one of the most prestigious retailers in Canada.”

“Fisker of Montreal was created by two of the most successful premium auto retailers in the world,” said Matthew Malfitano, Director of North American Operations at Fisker Automotive. “The long-standing reputations of Holand Automotive and Groupe Park Avenue give eco-minded luxury car buyers the confidence to share in Fisker’s vision. We look forward to a very fruitful relationship.”
