Fisker Ronin (Project Ronin): Everything we know [Update]

  • Will be a four-seat electric grand tourer
  • Will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just around 2 seconds
  • Has a targeted range of over 600 miles
  • Officially expected to be revealed in August 2023 and be produced from H2 2024

Update: ‘Platform & Range’ and ‘Release Date’ sections updated and ‘TopElectricSUV says’ section added.

Following the high-volume Fisker Ocean and Fisker Pear (project name), Fisker’s third EV will be a niche, brand-shaping model. Called Fisker Ronin provisionally, it will be a high-tech electric sports car aimed at driving enthusiasts.

Capabilities

Development of the Fisker Project Ronin takes place at the company’s UK facility, unofficially called ‘Magic Works.’ During the Q1 2022 earnings conference call on May 4, 2022, CEO Henrik Fisker said that the Ronin, “a low-invest low-volume vehicle,” would allow it to explore some innovative ideas early. For example, the company is developing what it thinks is a world-leading wiring harness that is “super simple, light, and very low cost,” but “really effective.”

The Fisker Ronin will be a gentlemanly four-seat grand tourer designed for spirited yet relaxing high-speed cruising on the highways, not a track-focused, cornering machine. It will be a tech demonstrator of the brand, showcasing its newest developments and capabilities in engineering, powertrain, and software aspects. Fisker came up with the codename based on the Hollywood Robert DeNiro starrer, famous for its car chase scenes.

The Project Ronin will feature unique doors that allow easier entry and exit, a vegan interior, and active aerodynamics tech.

Positioning

Fisker started developing the Ronin concept in 2021 to offer customers an alternative to luxury gasoline grand tourers. However, during the Q1 2022 earnings conference call, Fisker said that the Ronin would compete with luxury electric sedans, luxury gasoline sedans, and luxury sports coupes, and all luxury convertibles costing USD 100,000 onwards as well.

Platform & Range

With a targeted range of 600 miles (965 km), the battery technology used would also need to be the best technology. Fisker said during the Q1 2022 earnings conference call that the company is considering integrating the battery pack in a new way, such that it gives the car more energy density and lower weight. The Ronin won’t ride on the Ocean’s platform, but it will share a few components with the SUV.

Fisker will develop the Ronin on a new platform that will probably underpin a few other EVs in the future. It will be a high-spec architecture as Fisker took to Instagram to confirm that the target 0-60 mph time was about 2 seconds for the car.

Release Date

We’ll know more when the company unveils the Ronin concept version in August 2023. The production of the new electric sports car will start in H2 2024. Fisker has listed the Ronin on its website, and the title of the model page on search engines reads “coming 2025,” indicating customer deliveries will begin in 2025, not 2024.

TopElectricSUV says

The Fisker Ronin will be a grand tourer offering high performance without compromising much on comfort and practicality. We’ll need to wait until we can drive it to tell if it’s as fun behind the wheel as a typical Ferrari or Lambo, but projected specifications indicate it’ll be way blisteringly quick. Thanks to a long range, it’ll allow customers to cruise highways and travel long distances with ease.
