Fisker, manufacturer of electric vehicles, announces the Ronin project, a four-seater GT that will offer “the longest range in the world for a production EV“, according to Henri Fisker. We are still waiting for the production of the Ocean electric SUV.
In 1998 came out Ronin, a film signed by the late director John Frankenheimer and in which played among others Robert de Niro and Jean Reno. Shot in Paris and Nice, the film is known for its chases and stunts without special effects. As a tribute to the film, automaker Fisker unveiled the Ronin project, an electric GT that can accommodate up to four people and their luggage. The particularity of this car would be due to its autonomy announced as “the largest in the world for a production EV“, according to Henri Fisker, the creator and CEO of the eponymous brand.
Apart from a single image that reveals lines reminiscent of a Fisker Karma, the manufacturer has remained rather discreet on the technical aspects of the Ronin. We just know that the “great autonomy” will be “combined with an extremely high level of performance“, notably via “active aerodynamic technologies“. Basically, Fisker is banking on the Ronin’s numerous air intakes and spoilers. As for the battery pack, this should be integrated into the structure of the car, like the Tesla Model Y.
Finally, last information, this GT will be equipped with “unique doors for better entry and exit and a luxurious and durable interior with vegan materials that charts a new direction in advanced design“.
The Fisker Ronin will be officially presented in August 2023 for serial production in the second half of 2024.
If on paper, the announcement seems attractive, remember that Fisker has already promised two vehicles. The first, the Ocean SUV, manufactured by the Austrian Magna-Steyr and whose production should begin in November 2022. The second, Pear, a compact manufactured in collaboration with Foxconn and the start-up Lordstown Motors owner of a site of eponymous production located in Lordstown (Ohio). Production of 150,000 vehicles per year is expected to begin by 2024.
