On the heels of the Tesla Model S sedan unveil yesterday, competitor Fisker Automotive announced today that it's hand picked 27 retailers to sell the 2009 Fisker Karma. The vehicle is still slated for showrooms later this year and is a plug-in hybrid that can travel up to 50 miles on electric power alone after which time a General Motors turbocharged four (Pontiac Solstice GXP, Saturn Sky Red Line, Chevrolet Cobalt SS) turns a generator to replenish the sport sedan's lithium-ion battery pack.

Two of the dealers, John Bergstrom and Ron Tonkin, are prominent automotive dealers. The former has won the Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award, the latter is a past president of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA). Russell Datz of Fisker Automotive explains that all 27 dealers were carefully chosen because of their experience with premium brand sales, ability to handle new technology, and tendency to draw a discerning clientele.

The retailers stretch across the U.S. and into Canada. Retailers like California dealer Tom Price, who will sell the Fisker at three of his dealerships, are banking on the popularity of hybrids and green technology in that progressive state.
