Bellevue gets another electric sportscar dealer

First Tesla moved its dealership from Seattle to a new showroom Bellevue.

Now Fisker will begin selling its high-end, electric sports sedans in Bellevue, as well. The cars were first sold in the Seattle area at a dealer near Southcenter.

Fisker of Bellevue – a subsdiary of the O’Brien Auto Group – is now in place but “officially opening” on April 2 at 10692 NE 8th St. with four full-time employees and eight support staffers.

Fisker’s Karma sedan uses a hybrid power system. It has a plug-in electric motor with a 50-mile range and a gas-powered generator that extends the range another 200 miles.

The price of a Karma? Around $102,000, before the $7,500 tax credit for electric vehicles.
