US EV manufacturer Fisker has announced plans to open its first UK customer experience centre in London in 2022 before entering the UK market in 2023.
The announcement follows agreements signed by Cox Automotive and Rivus Fleet Solutions to provide a range of after-sales services for the UK market.
Outsourced solutions such as vehicle delivery, service and maintenance, fleet management and reselling in the UK will also be performed by Cox and Rivus.
Martin Forbes, president of Cox Automotive International, said: “Fisker will be an exciting addition to the UK market and will be able to take advantage of the full range of physical and digital services we have to support vehicle manufacturers.
“Our aim is to provide customers with the solutions needed to adapt to this fast-changing marketplace and we have been investing heavily in our vehicle services and EV infrastructure to meet the expected growth in EV registrations.”
In October 2020, Fisker announced a strategic cooperation with Magna International to assemble its all-electric Ocean SUV, which is scheduled to launch in late 2022.
The consumer experience centre in London will allow potential UK buyers to see the Ocean SUV in person.
Fisker chairman, Henrik Fisker, said: “With recent UK government announcements related to electric vehicles, we believe Fisker will be well placed and well timed to make significant progress in this important market, supported by Cox and Rivus as essential delivery partners.”
