Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
Shelly Automotive Group is proud to announce its partnership with premium green automaker, Fisker Automotive.
Slated to open its doors this fall, the Fisker of Orange County dealership will market and service Fisker's luxury plug-in hybrid vehicles, beginning with the $87,000, 100-miles per gallon Karma sedan available next year.
"We firmly believe that it is time for a major environmental movement in the automotive industry," said Steve Rudkin, Fisker of Orange County General Sales Manager. "With the Karma, luxury automobile owners will have the ability to buy an environmentally-friendly vehicle without sacrifice-a vehicle that will still deliver the superior style and luxury to which they are accustomed."
The Fisker Karma sedan fuses the traditional and timeless styling of veteran auto designer and Fisker Automotive CEO Henrik Fisker with Quantum Technologies' clean Q-DRIVE® plug-in hybrid powertrain. The result is the world's first true premium luxury plug-in hybrid sports car capable of a top speed of 125 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 5.8 seconds.
The Fisker of Orange County showrooms will reflect the company's concern for the environment and their vehicles' emission-free capabilities. Architecture calls for natural and sustainable materials while an available solar-powered car port will keep demonstrator vehicles clean, dry, fully charged and ready to go.
"They will be eco-facilities, not ego-facilities," said Fisker Board Member Vic Doolan. "Our retail partners are our most important assets as they are the face of our company. For that reason, we've chosen those who will give Fisker owners the comfort and confidence to drive the future."
