Fisker is among those brands that can take on Tesla head-on, and now the American EV maker has unveiled the Ronin sports car, which it says makes bold claims about outperforming Tesla.
Under the leadership of former Aston Martin special vehicle chief, Dave King, Fisker’s Magic Works facility in the UK continues to develop the Ronin, which is claimed to have the world’s longest range of up to 1000 km. It’s also the world’s one and only 4-door convertible EV.
Coming to the build, Fisker says, as the sports car doesn’t have B and C pillars that aid in chassis rigidity, it has developed a new rocker structure that’s not only innovative but also can easily sustain severe side impacts.
The sports car will be constructed using advanced, lightweight materials, and the brand’s focus will be on range, performance and overall driving experience. Ronin also gets active aerodynamics and a battery pack integrated directly on to the vehicle structure.
Powered by three motors, the Ronin can accelerate from 0-100 km/hr in less than two seconds. Other than this, Fisker didn’t reveal any detail about the powertrain. The production-ready car will be unveiled in August, next year, with production commencing by second half of 2024.
The Ronin is expected to join Fisker’s other models planned – Ocean electric SUV and Pear urban EV .
