Santander partnership marks the US EV manufacturer’s decisive step into the UK
Fisker, the home-grown US EV manufacturer, has teamed up with Santander Consumer Finance. Together, the partnership will enhance Fisker’s presence in the UK market. As such, the bank will offer various financing options, including Personal Contract Purchase (PCP), Personal Contract Hire (PCH), Conditional Sale (CS), and Business Contract Hire (BCH).
Stewart Grant, Santander Consumer UK’s commercial director, expressed enthusiasm:
“We share Fisker’s dedication to quality, reliability and sustainability and look forward to working alongside them over the coming years to achieve their strategic goals.”
Already providing finance for Fisker’s recently launched Ocean SUV, Santander’s involvement comes as an extension to their collaboration. The company now boasts a total of 18 manufacturer partners in the UK, including Fisker.
Fisker’s CEO and Founder Henrik Fisker said:
“With our vision for a clean future for all, we want to make the Fisker Ocean accessible for larger groups of customers through attractive finance offers.
As a new EV brand in the market, we appreciate being able to give our customers the opportunity that goes with choosing a financing option provided by Santander Consumer Finance, one of Europe’s largest consumer finance companies.”
In addition to the finance partnership, Fisker has revamped its loyalty program for European customers. Now, they’re offering a range of lifetime benefits, rewards, and exclusive perks. Existing and future customers are automatically enrolled in the program, earning points through referrals, Fisker Lounge visits, and scheduling test drives. Exclusive perks for Ocean One owners include charging credit, a free tire replacement, extended warranty, free Over-The-Air (OTA) updates, early access to vehicle features, and a comprehensive service package.
Fisker’s international expansion plan includes the introduction of the all-electric Fisker Ocean Extreme in the UK, with an impressive range of up to 440 miles. Leveraging Santander’s support, Fisker aims to meet evolving customer needs as it continues to roll out innovative electric vehicles in the market.
The collaboration with Santander Consumer Finance reflects Fisker’s strategic approach to partnerships and financing. The company is positioning itself for growth in the competitive EV landscape. The combination of financing options and an enhanced loyalty program underscores Fisker’s commitment to making sustainable mobility accessible and appealing to a broader audience.
