Fisker, the American electric vehicle manufacturer, has recently unveiled its new Ronin sports car, which boasts some bold Tesla-beating performance figures.
While the production of Fisker’s first electric vehicle, the Ocean SUV, has yet to begin, the company is already planning its third electric vehicle. Henrik Fisker, the company’s CEO, posted the first teaser of a new electric GT sportscar named the Ronin on Instagram. By August 2023, Fisker hopes to unveil the prototype.
The sports car will be built using innovative, lightweight materials, and the brand will place a premium on the range, performance, and total driving enjoyment. Ronin also features active aerodynamics and a battery pack built into the vehicle’s frame.
Ronin will be powered by a three-motor electric powertrain, with the battery pack incorporated into the frame for increased efficiency and reduced weight. The Ronin will be capable of a 0-96kmph speed in under two seconds when equipped with an all-wheel powertrain. Henrik Fisker, however, argues that this will have no effect on range, as they aim for 600 miles (965 kilometres) on a single charge.
That’s not all; the Ronin will be a four-door convertible GT electric sportscar that will fit into a specialized category. We can tell from the teaser photographs that the Ronin will feature a sleek appearance. On the front fenders, there’s a cool illuminated pattern that appears to be LED DRLs, and if you look further ahead, there’s a cool illuminated pattern that appears to be LED DRLs. The big wheels complete the look.
Plans in India:
Fisker is going to start its India innings at home, with Fisker Vigyan Pvt Ltd as the Indian arm. It has already set up a plant in Hyderabad, Telangana, with ambitions to introduce the Ocean SUV and the impending Pear EV. The former will most likely arrive in 2023, while the latter will most likely arrive in 2024. In terms of the Ronin, we may have to wait till 2025 to see it in India.
