Fisker announces limited Ronin run of 999 units

Fisker has revealed more details about its Ronin electric sports car, which the carmaker presented for the first time at the beginning of August together with two other new models. Only 999 units of the Ronin, for which Fisker has now published new photos, will be produced.

Deliveries of the Ronin are scheduled to begin in the second half of 2025. As announced at the ‘Product Vision Day’, the vehicle is a five-seater convertible that is supposed to be a sports car and Gran Turismo at the same time. Fisker itself speaks of a ‘Super GT Convertible’. When the hardtop is folded up, the vehicle is supposed to function as a sporty saloon.

Now, further details have been revealed: The Ronin is to get a three-motor all-wheel drive system that is to offer more than 745 kW of power and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in around two seconds. An important mark for the “old” combustion engine world: the 745 kW equals 1,013 hp. Fisker gives the top speed as 170 mph (275 km/h), the targeted range as 600 miles (965 kilometres). There are no details on the battery or charging power yet, but it will be a cell-to-chassis concept: According to the announcement, the Ronin will have a “unique aluminium space frame with integrated battery cells”.

Immediately after the ‘Product Vision Day’ on 3 August, the first reservations were also possible for 2,000 dollars. When the vehicle is delivered in 2025, the price will be 385,000 dollars, according to the company’s current information – as is usual in the USA, this is probably a net price. The company does not state in the current announcement how many reservations have been received in the almost two weeks since the first presentation.

With the Ronin, Fisker says it wants to use the advantages of an electric platform to realise a concept that is hardly possible in the combustion world: A sports car with plenty of space for passengers and luggage. Even with the carbon convertible roof open, a certain amount of cargo space is to remain in the rear, with the frunk additionally available. However, Fisker does not mention exact volumes yet.

For the passengers, there is to be a rather unusual door concept: The front doors open electrically by a wiping gesture over the “handle” or by smartphone app. As soon as the rear doors are ready, their handle folds out automatically. The rear doors open in opposite directions according to the butterfly principle. Incidentally, “Focus will be on driver enjoyment rather than autonomous technologies, although they will be available as needed.”

“The Fisker Rōnin 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,” says CEO Henrik Fisker. “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.”
