Fisker Ronin: four-seat convertible electric GT targets 600-mile range, says CEO

The zero-emissions convertible GT car will boast a range of around 600 miles, according to the brand’s CEO; the Tesla Roadster rival is set to debut in 2023

American electric-car maker Fisker has revealed it’s working on a four-seat convertible GT car with a range of approximately 600 miles. CEO and founder Henrik Fisker shared the news on social media, adding that the Ronin will be capable of 0-60mph in close to two seconds, thanks to a combination of three electric motors.

To help the Tesla Roadster and Maserati GranCabrio Folgore rival achieve this record-breaking range figure, the Ronin will feature active aerodynamics and a new battery design integrated into the car's structure. However, the exact size of that battery, as well as horsepower estimates for the Ronin, have yet to be disclosed.

The limited number of details released so far include that the forthcoming flagship will be capable of carrying four adults and their luggage on long journeys. Fisker's top boss also shared that the Ronin will be a convertible, and come with four doors. Exactly what shape they’ll take is still under wraps, but we expect the Ronin will incorporate a coach-door mechanism like certain Rolls-Royce models.

Finally, Fisker has stated that the Ronin is expected to start from under $200,000 (just under £160,00 at the time of writing). Development of the fully electric GT is already under way, with a prototype of the car set to make its debut in August 2023 before production commences the following year.

The few teaser images of the electric GT reveal it’ll have a long bonnet reminiscent of the BMW Z8 and Aston Martin sports cars the company’s founder designed in the past. Meanwhile, the Ronin’s sharp nose, complex headlight design and aggressive splitter envelop much of the front of the car.

The teaser image appears to reveal the car will sport a set of digital side mirrors, like those found on the Lotus Eletre, also to help with aerodynamics. Then there’s the cabin, which, according to Fisker, will feature sustainable, vegan materials.

The Ronin will be the third model in Fisker’s growing range of fully electric cars. The first, the Ocean SUV, will go into production towards the end of the year, at which time it’ll face off against the Tesla Model Y and BMW iX3, among many others.

Fisker’s second EV is called the PEAR – an acronym for 'Personal Electric Automotive Revolution'. It’s not been unveiled yet, nor do we have any technical details about the car, but it does have a starting price of $29,900 (just under £24,000 at the time of writing) in the US, where it’s available to reserve now. The PEAR will also launch in 2024.
