Fisker Partners With Bridgestone For EV Services And Solutions In France And Germany

Fisker, an American electric vehicle maker and provider of advanced mobility solutions, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bridgestone to provide comprehensive after-sales and related maintenance solutions in France and Germany.

This comes on the heels of Bridgestone’s selection as the exclusive tyre partner by Fisker for its upcoming Ocean all-electric SUV. As part of this new agreement, Bridgestone will provide extensive after-sales services to Fisker’s customers in France and Germany using its Speedy, Pitstop and Reiff-ABS networks. Speedy has over 450 service locations throughout France, while Pitstop and Reiff-ABS combined have more than 300 service locations across Germany. 

Henrik Fisker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Fisker, said, “From 17 November 2022, we will start production and deliveries of the Fisker Ocean SUV, with France and Germany among the first European markets to launch. Our partnership with Bridgestone is being activated across multiple areas of our business and we have been consistently impressed with Bridgestone’s investment into the future of clean mobility and focused on innovative products and service solutions for the next generation of electric vehicles. The fact that Bridgestone offers unique end-to-end services and packages including original equipment fitments, after-sales and mobility solutions to mobility players is key. The ability to make use of their extensive network to provide our own after-sales servicing will be crucial to Fisker’s long-term success.”

Laurent Dartoux, President and CEO, Bridgestone EMIA, said, “As part of our commitment to help shape a sustainable future of mobility, Bridgestone is supporting the adoption of EVs through a fully integrated approach. This includes the development of premium tyres and tyre technologies for EVs, along with dedicated fleet and mobility solutions. It also entails the development of an end-to-end EV-ready retail and service network, which includes EV maintenance and tyre services, EV charging and mobile services for EVs all together under one roof. Fisker’s passion for sustainable innovation and their mission to make sustainable EVs more accessible aligns perfectly with our own goals. Partnering with innovators like Fisker is a key element to our approach and we are proud to put our strong footprint and all the capabilities of our EV-ready retail network at the disposal of their customers.” (TT)
