Fisker Inc. announced a partnership with Onto, the UK-based all-inclusive electric car subscription service for private and business users. The agreement, the first multi-vehicle reservation for Fisker in the UK market, supports the delivery of up to 700 vehicles in 2023.
Onto will not only be Fisker’s first customer in the UK, but also the exclusive rental/subscription partner for 2023.
Onto, founded in 2017, is an innovative technology-driven enterprise that provides easy access to electric vehicles through their all-inclusive subscription service. Through a monthly subscription, customers get the latest EVs with insurance, public charging and servicing all included.
With an active fleet of more than 3000 vehicles in operation with both private and business customers across the UK, Onto has pioneered new ways to enable drivers to access electric vehicles without the need for lengthy lease contracts.
“We are seeing the rapid growth of innovative companies like Onto that are enabling the transition to electric mobility,” commented Fisker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Fisker. “Our focus for business-to-business reservations is on high-quality companies that share our commitment to deliver an outstanding customer experience. Our partnership with Onto is a significant step in rapidly building our presence in the UK electric vehicle market.”
Rob Jolly, CEO and co-founder of Onto comments: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Fisker to offer our customers even more choice when it comes to driving an Electric Car. Fisker’s impressive goals for electrification, coupled with their reputation for always introducing the latest technology, match our own and we are excited to go on this journey with them. Onto subscribers will be able to enjoy all the benefits of the impressive Fisker Ocean together with our hassle-free service.”
In December 2020, Fisker announced a partnership with Cox Automotive and Rivus for delivery, servicing, fleet management and reselling programs in the United Kingdom. The Fisker Ocean SUV is being engineered for both left and right-hand-drive versions, with deliveries projected to start in the UK during the first half of 2023.
The company had also previously confirmed that the first Fisker experience center in the UK would be opened in London during 2022. The global reveal of the Fisker Ocean will be at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2021 – with start of production and deliveries of left-hand-drive versions in Q4 2022.
