American electric vehicle manufacturer, Fisker, has released additional information on its Ronin Super GT, an all-electric convertible that was recently shown to the public at the brand’s first-ever Product Vision Day on 3 August.
Due to the incredible levels of utility seen on the high end of the market, particularly where big-name manufacturers are introducing SUVs, Fisker’s modus operandi when creating the Ronin has hinged around accommodating five people and delivering exceptional cargo capacity. This has been achieved by taking advantage of the electric vehicle drivetrain configuration and subsequent.
In terms of performance, the Ronin benefits from a projected 0-60mph time of two seconds and a 170mph (275km/h) top speed – figures that will easily match any current supercar on the market, all the while delivering an impressive charge range of 600-miles. According to Fisker, the main focus will be on “driver enjoyment rather than autonomous technologies, although they will be available as needed.”
“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,” said Chairman and 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.”
Rear ingress comes way of rear butterfly doors that make use of just a single door handle. The front doors open electrically by swiping the handle or by using a smartphone; something we’ve seen employed by other manufacturers such as McLaren. All doors as well as the foldable, carbon-fibre hardtop can be opened remotely by a smartphone. Luggage space once the roof is stowed is limited but additional space is available in the front trunk.
The all-aluminium space frame plays home to the integrated battery cells. More feathery materials come in the way of trick carbon-fibre 23-inch wheels. The interior will comprise innovative recycled and sustainable materials, which the brand reckons will set new standards for luxury with the goal of becoming the world’s most sustainable supercar.
Reservations for the Fisker Ronin are open. On 3 August, customers could place an early deposit of $2,000 for the first reservation and a fully refundable $1,000 for the second. The vehicle will come in at a sticker price of $385,000, with deliveries expected in the second half of 2025. Only 999 vehicles will be produced.
