Electric vehicle manufacturer Fisker has revealed it is launching its third vehicle, codenamed Project Ronin, which will be a high-tech electric GT sports car that the company claims will have the longest range for any production EV.
Following the Fisker Ocean and Fisker PEAR, the all-electric sport Grand Tourer will feature innovations such as a battery pack integrated with the vehicle’s structure.
Designed by Henrik Fisker, chairman & CEO and team, the Ronin builds upon his iconic design past which includes the BMW Z8 of James Bond fame, several Aston Martin models, and the Karma.
“The aim is to achieve the world’s longest range for a production EV, combined with extremely high levels of performance,” CEO Henrik Fisker said. “Project Ronin will be a showcase for our internal engineering, powertrain, and software capabilities.”
The code name was inspired by the film of the same title, with its famous car chases. Development of the Ronin concept started last year with the goal of creating a futuristic Grand Touring sports car suitable for long road trips while carrying four adults and their luggage.
According to the press release, Henrik Fisker’s brief to the engineering team was to use the most advanced, lightweight materials and focus on range, performance, and overall driving experience. Project Ronin will feature active aerodynamic technologies and an innovative battery design, with the pack integrated into the structure of the vehicle.
The GT will feature unique doors for better ingress and egress and a luxurious, sustainable vegan interior that plots a new, advanced design direction. Fisker expects to reveal Project Ronin in August 2023, with production starting in the second half of 2024.
