Karma Comes to Downtown Orlando

Fields Group will add Fisker Karma to its luxury car line-up.

Published: 02-Jan-2010

Downtown Orlando will soon get a car dealership for a brand-new brand, but in a familiar location.

The Fields Group, which owns BMW dealerships in Winter Park, Orlando, Lakeland and Daytona Beach — as well as North Carolina, Canada and near Fields headquarters in Illinios — launched the Mini brand locally from a refurbished building on Orange Avenue in 2002.

But Mini outgrew the downtown space, so Fields bought the vacated Infiniti dealership just off Interstate 4 near Lee Road and renamed it Mini of Orlando. Which left the space downtown vacant. Fields was prepared to let it go, but the company's management thought: Hey, that would be a great place for Fisker.
