Hello from your new Smart dealer in Madison, WI

Hello everyone! My name is Christopher Litzkow and I am very excited to be offering the Smart vehicles in Madison, WI. The dealership is Zimbrick European, and we are an MBUSA dealer, also carrying Sprinter, Audi, and Porsche. Things have been happening fast during this transition, and I'll be the first to admit that I don't have a lot of experience with the Smart cars. However, I am a quick learner and love to share information as I get it!

For you Smart owners in Milwaukee I wouldn't be too surprised if you see a Smart service (only) center opening in your area. That is VERY unofficial, but the Zimbrick's do know how important it is for you to not have to drive all the way to Madison for maintenance. I'll break more news on that as I get it.

As for the main sales, service and parts, that will be happening here in Madison. We should have inventory in-stock and ready for delivery within 3-4 weeks, and I think you'll find our crew here at Zimbrick Mercedes-Benz to be very excited for this new opportunity.

Please, post a reply and say hello... and certainly don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

You can learn more about me and our dealer at MBofMadison.com, and please visit my Facebook page (and 'Like' it) for breaking news, updates, product info, and events. The pages will be updated to reflect the Smart branding as soon as I am officially allowed to make those changes.

Keep in mind that we are currently capable of handling all your Smart service needs, and we do have several customers who have been servicing with us for years.

Thanks!

Christopher Litzkow

Bergstrom closing in the news

Bergstrom Smart car dealership closes - JSOnline

Bergstrom Smart car dealership closes
By Doris Hajewski of the Journal Sentinel
May 13, 2011 6:00 p.m

Quote:
Smart cars are no longer sold in the Milwaukee area, with the closing of the Bergstrom Smart car dealership on Metro Blvd.
The closing April 30 was the result of the end of the Penske Automotive Group's distributorship agreement with Mercedes-Benz, the maker of Smart cars in a joint venture with Swiss watchmaker Swatch. Bergstrom was a Smart car distributor for Penske, said owner John Bergstrom.
The change of distribution channels for Smart cars was announced earlier this year. The new arrangement calls for Mercedes to distribute Smart cars through its own dealers. But at this point, neither of the Mercedes dealers in Milwaukee is selling Smart cars.
International Auto, with locations in West Allis and Waukesha, has asked Mercedes to place Smart cars in it stores but hasn't heard back, according to general manager Tom Dexter.
Concours Motors, on W. Silver Spring Drive, isn't seeking to handle Smart cars, said general manager Jim Clark.
"There's very little volume there," Clark said, adding that there's not much profit to be made on the cars.
Clark said sales of Smart cars have dropped dramatically, despite high gas prices. If Mercedes requires a dealer to build a separate sales area for the Smart cars, it wouldn't be worth the investment, he said.
Mini Coopers have been more popular than Smart cars, Clark said.
Bergstrom, meanwhile, has turned his Metro Blvd. Smart car store into a Fiat dealership. Bergstrom is servicing Smart cars at its Mercedes dealership in Appleton, and the Zimbrick Mercedes dealership in Madison also is offering Smart car service, Bergstrom said.
