“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.
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. He estimates a range of over 550 miles (885 kilometers).
According to Fisker, 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.
