Fisker has launched the Ronin, a potent fully electric grand touring (GT) two-door designed to challenge the upcoming high-class electric vehicle (EV) drop-tops from Genesis, Polestar, and Tesla. 

The name "Ronin" suggests a masterless samurai, and this car is designed to confront the rivals of sporty electric vehicles on the horizon. The Ronin diverges from Fisker's conventional 2024 Ocean electric crossover utility vehicle and acts as the brand's flagship model. 

Fisker Ronin EV design and features

With its distinctive design, including reverse-opening back doors inspired by the Mazda RX-8, the Ronin affords convenient entry to its five-passenger seating configuration. Its carbon-fibre roof can retract, creating the pioneering quad-door, five-seat hardtop convertible.

However, the focus is not just on speed, as the car is intended for grand touring (GT), and range is critical. To achieve this goal, Fisker strategises to use batteries incorporated throughout the vehicle's body structure, aiming for a striking 600-mile range.

The cabin details are yet to be unveiled, but swivelling screens and environment-friendly materials like those used in the Ocean can be anticipated. 

Fisker Ronin EV mileage

Under the hood, the Ronin offers a triple-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain producing 1,000 horsepower (hp), enabling a 0-60 miles per hour (mph) acceleration in about 2.0 seconds. 

Fisker Ronin EV price and availability

Advance bookings are currently open for a $2,000 deposit, with an initial price of $385,000. Meanwhile, its production is scheduled for late 2025 with the potential launch is expected to take place in 2026.
