As you know Fisker will implement some central stores in major cities and will get arrangement with existing service car cie. They already mention some cities like LA and Munich but nothing for Canada for now. Do you think that they will get one or two in Canada for 2023?
Second question is about the service, which actual implemented cie would be the best to give the service to the customers? Or should they go with the same pattern than Genesis and give the service at the Central Store?
Excited to read your comments!!

No comments from my post!!
Fisker has just negociated a service partner with Bridgestone for Germany and France, see below:

United in their vision for a more sustainable future of mobility, the latest partnership is a win-win deal for the companies. It will enhance the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) through a fully integrated approach. Per this alliance and by being the industry’s first, Bridgestone will make its EV-ready retail and service network available to provide Fisker’s customers in France and Germany with widespread after-sales services throughout the Speedy, Pitstop and Reiff-ABS networks, which are part of Bridgestone’s extensive retail network in Europe. Speedy encompasses more than 450 locations throughout France, while in Germany, Pitstop and Reiff-ABS collectively offer services at more than 300 locations across the country.

Fisker is highly ecstatic about the deal. Bridgestone offers unique end-to-end services and packages – including original equipment fitments, after-sales and mobility solutions to mobility players – which plays a pivotal role for its selection in the deal. Fisker will choose the most appropriate sites from Bridgestone’s extensive service network in France and Germany to cater to its customers’ needs and specific requirements, fueling its long-term growth.

So Fisker has decide to make the deals with different third parties in countries and will only get central stores on some major cities.

To be honest, I don't know what a "car service cie" is. Obviously, how and where these cars will be serviced is a big deal. I think not having a service center within a reasonable distance to someone would be a deal breaker for most people.

Yes it would be a deal breaker that's why they have to choose a partner having service centers in most cities possible in the country or make a deal with more than one. In Canada I cannot see which one it could be, maybe "Canadian Tire" but I really don't know if it would be feasible.
For example Polestar have one show room with service in Montreal that's it, so the guy located at 200 km is not really interested!

@Baker,
This looks like a winning strategy for Fisker in France & Germany!
Perhaps, they will follow a similar strategy and choose the best service provider available...
This could be one of he following:
1) Bridgestone Tire Centres
2) Active Green & Ross Centres
3) Kal Tire Centre
4) Midas (Muffler) Centre
5) another National Service Centre

I think so, because they signed with Bridgestone already in Europe probably that it will be their first choice in Canada!

I would raise an eyebrow if they sub-contracted service to a tire store chain here in the States. These guys are good for shocks, struts, ball joints and batteries but these cars are, I imagine, pretty complex beyond that stuff. But I'll try to keep an open mind.
