Fisker Readies Dealerships for Plug-in Hybrid Release

February 08, 2011

LOS ANGELES - Universal Technical Institute Inc. (UTI) and Fisker Automotive announced plans to provide technical training to Fisker dealership personnel at the UTI campus in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. To support the release of Fisker's Karma plug-in hybrid, UTI expects to train approximately 100 technicians from Fisker's U.S. dealers this spring.

"Fisker automobiles bring a technologically advanced platform that is coupled with design elements that will certainly turn heads. Being chosen to assist in the technical training and certification for the launch phase of this new brand is an exciting opportunity for UTI," said Greg Dickson, vice president of customer solutions and advanced training for UTI.

The Fisker Karma is expected to make its dealer showroom debut in the spring of this year. The Fisker Karma is a four-door plug-in hybrid sports sedan.

UTI will train Fisker technicians in several areas, including hybrid systems, routine maintenance, chassis, coachwork, roadside recovery, engine management and electrical systems.
