Fisker Automotive has garnered what could be taken as a significant endorsement from the legendary motorsports team owner and entrepreneur Roger Penske. His Penske Automotive Group has signed on to sell and service the battery-car start-up’s plug-in hybrid vehicles in Arizona and the surrounding region through Fisker of Scottsdale.
The addition of the PAG outlet in Scottsdale means Fisker now has 48 outlets in North America alone, and will soon be distributed for the first time in China and the Middle East, after signing new retail agreements in both regions, Fisker officials said.
“Penske Automotive Group is one of the most respected and successful auto retail companies in the world,” said Matthew Malfitano, Fisker’s director of North American operations.“Their support speaks volumes about Fisker’s market potential. Fisker is proud to be part of the Penske team and we look forward to a fruitful relationship.’
