Fisker quietly made the announcement Dec. 1 in a news release filled with several small updates about the electric-vehicle startup’s Canadian launch.
Hoffmann then made a similar announcement on his LinkedIn page on Dec. 3.
In its news release, which featured items about the U.S., European and Canadian markets, Fisker said it “has now achieved all required approvals and licenses, and satisfied insurance requirements, to sell vehicles in Canada.”
“Fisker will commence transporting vehicles from U.S. ports to Canadian customers next week, making deliveries in December,” the automaker said.
Like many EV startups, Fisker doesn’t use a dealership model.
But, the company intends to establish retail and service locations in Vancouver and Toronto. It also plans “Fisker-certified collision-repair centres.”
Fisker doesn’t comment on the number of reservations or orders it has received and filled.
CEO Henrik Fisker has repeatedly said only that the automaker has “strong reservations and a solid bank of orders for the Fisker Ocean in Canada.”
It also noted in its most recent news release that it has partnered with Scotiabank for financing.
Also on Dec. 1, the company took to X, formally Twitter, to say it would “also launch leasing solutions globally, with specific announcements forthcoming.”
