Fisker Karma to Debut in China in April 2011

Fisker Automotive has just announced that it picked China Grand Automotive Group (CGA) as its Chinese partner that will be responsible for distribution, marketing and service operations of its models in the country. The agreement was signed today during a ceremony that took place in Shanghai near CGA's headquarters, Fisker announced in a press release, while emphasizing that CGA is the best choice because it already works with multiple brands, including Lexus and Lamborghini

"We are extremely proud to be working with CGA to support Fisker Automotive in the fast-emerging Chinese market," said Henrik Fisker, CEO, Fisker Automotive. "With its vast network of experienced retailers CGA will give Fisker an instant and credible footprint in the region. CGA's attention to detail and excellent customer service will ensure Fisker buyers receive the level of service and peace of mind expected of a premium brand."

In addition, Fisker also revealed that its first model, the Karma, will arrive in China in April 2011, and is to be displayed at the Shanghai Motor Show.

Fisker has announced its plans to step into China earlier this year when the company revealed that it's seeking partners to support its expansion into yet unexplored markets.

"We're going into China in the second half of next year. We're already finalizing negotiations with a major Chinese distributor,"
Henry Fisker, founder of the company, said in a statement earlier this year. "A strategic partnership with somebody, that's a possibility," Fisker added. "We have had talks with several car companies about that, but it has to be not only the right timing but the right fit."
