Fisker Inc., driven by a mission to create the world’s most emotional and sustainable electric vehicles, released details on its Fisker Ronin Super GT, an all-electric convertible that was showcased at the company’s first-ever Product Vision Day on August 3, 2023.
“The Fisker Ronin is for people who love to drive, but who are also thrilled by automotive art and design and demand that their high-performance vehicles embrace a sustainable future,” Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said. “Our goal was to create a classic grand touring car, updated for the 21st century and engineered for customers who want to drive from Los Angeles to Napa Valley on a single charge or take on the autobahn at steady high speeds without concern for battery capacity.”
Fisker opened reservations for Ronin – an homage to the famous John Frankenheimer film of the same name, which features epic car chase scenes – on August 3; early customers could place a deposit of $2,000 for the first reservation and a fully refundable $1,000 for the second. The vehicle will be priced at $385,000, with deliveries targeted to start in the second half of 2025. Fisker will produce just 999 vehicles.
Fisker’s objective with Ronin is to bring exceptional utility to the high end of the market, where numerous big-name performance manufacturers have introduced SUVs. Responding to this trend, Fisker has designed Ronin to accommodate five people while taking advantage of an electric vehicle’s layout to provide exceptional cargo capacity, a true rarity in the supercar world. With a projected 0-60mph time of approximately two seconds and a 170mph (275km/h) top speed, Ronin will be able to match up with or surpass any supercar currently on the market while also delivering tremendous range. Focus will be on driver enjoyment rather than autonomous technologies, although they will be available as needed.
Rear butterfly doors will ensure easy rear-seat access. Only a single door handle will be required, as the front doors open electrically by swiping the handle or by using a smartphone; the handle then extends when the rear doors are ready to be opened. All doors can be opened remotely by a smartphone, and the foldable, carbon-fiber hardtop will also be smartphone activated and automatically retract into the trunk, leaving some luggage space; additional luggage space will be available in the front trunk.
The Fisker Ronin will feature a unique aluminum space frame with integrated battery cells to achieve its targeted 600-mile range. Lightweight materials will also feature in the carbon-fiber 23-inch wheels. The interior will set new standards for sustainable luxury and will use innovative recycled and sustainable materials, with the goal of making Ronin the world’s most sustainable supercar. The Fisker Ronin will also have a 17.1-inch high-resolution screen and an instrument cluster positioned in front of the driver.
