Fisker Inc., passionate creator of the world’s most sustainable electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions, announced it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Mekonomen Group to provide a range of after-sales services for the Danish, Norwegian and Swedish markets. Consistent with Fisker’s asset-lite and digital-forward business model, the Mekonomen Group will provide outsourced solutions covering areas including vehicle delivery, service/maintenance, fleet management, mobile fleet servicing and refurbishment.
“From November 17, 2022 we will start production and deliveries of the Fisker Ocean SUV, with Denmark, Norway and Sweden among the first European markets to launch,” commented Fisker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Fisker. “Supporting a great product must be an equally great ownership experience. Partnering with the recognized leader in service and logistics across Scandinavia will be an important part of delivering excellence to our customers.”
“We are glad that Fisker has chosen us as a partner where we together intend to develop an innovative and simple logistics model and aftermarket business,” says Petra Bendelin, director of business development and strategy at Mekonomen Group. “As a facilitator of mobility, our business is not limited by the type of vehicles that drive on the roads. The demand for mobility will remain, where we see great opportunities to take a strong position in the transition to newer and greener technology in the automotive aftermarket.”
With a network of more than 3,000 affiliated workshops across Scandinavia, the Mekonomen Group will provide a range of delivery and ownership services including driveway and remote service support, as well as automotive parts logistics. Under the Fisker asset-lite model, the company is forming strategic partnerships with high-quality service providers such as Mekonomen Group in Scandinavia, in addition to Cox Automotive and Rivus Fleet Solutions in the U.K.
Fisker intends to start production and deliveries on its first vehicle, the Ocean electric SUV, from November 17, 2022 – and unveil a production-intent prototype at the Los Angeles Auto Show® later this year. On May 13, Fisker and Foxconn announced the signing of framework agreements for Project PEAR, a breakthrough new segment vehicle to be jointly developed by both companies and sold under the Fisker brand into global markets including North America, Europe, China and India. Project PEAR will be the company’s second model, with U.S. production slated for Q4 2023.
