LOS ANGELES - The California-based premium electric vehicle manufacturer Fisker Automotive is ready to sell its environment-friendly low carbon-emission cars in China next fall, the company announced on Wednesday.
Executives from the Fisker Automotive and China Grand Auto(CGA) formalized the non-exclusive agreement during a ceremony near the CGA headquarters in Shanghai, the company said in a press release.
The American carmaker has partnered with CGA to sell its electric vehicles with extended range through CGA's network of over 200 retail stores across China.
Fisker Automotive's first car, the Fisker Karma which made its North America debut in the Los Angeles Auto Show in mid-November, will premiere in China at the Shanghai Motor Show in April 2011.
As the world's first true electric vehicle with extended range, the four-passenger saloon has a total range of 483km, capable of traveling 80 km on emission-free electric power alone, and an additional 403 km on low-emission hybrid electric power.
Deliveries to Chinese customers can be expected to take place in the next fall.
The company has received about 3,000 pre-orders for the product from customers around the world. It plans to sell 15,000 vehicles per year globally.
