Fisker reveals more detail about upcoming Ronin Super GT Convertible
Manhattan Beach, California-based automotive company Fisker Incorporated has released more details about its upcoming flagship model called the Ronin, which has been described as a Super GT convertible.
The Fisker Ronin, which was unveiled just around a week back during the company’s Product Vision Day 2023 event, will come equipped with a powerful integrated battery pack that will reportedly offer an estimated range of 600 miles on a full charge. The new details have been released via new photos of the all-electric vehicle.
The upcoming EV will feature a folding hardtop, and it will function as a sports sedan when this hardtop is raised. Thus, this vehicle will be a sort of 2-in-1 vehicle. The discontinued internal combustion engine-powered Mercedes-Benz S-Class convertible also served as a 2-in-1 vehicle but it had a cloth roof, while the Ronin will feature a carbon fiber roof and two extra doors.
The smartphone activated foldable roof of the upcoming EV will retract into the vehicle’s trunk, but still there will be some space for luggage. Additionally, the front trunk will offer extra luggage space.
All doors of the vehicle can be opened remotely by using a smartphone app as well as by swiping the handle mounted on each side of the door. The handle extends when the EV’s rear doors are ready to be opened.
Other notable features and specs of the Fisker Ronn includes the projected 0-60 miles per hour (mph) time of 2 seconds, top speed of 170 mph, over 1,000 hp drivetrain, the carbon fiber 23-inch wheels, and a massive 17.1-inch high-resolution screen & instrument cluster in front of the driver.
When asked for a comment, CEO Henrik Fisker said, “The Fisker Ronin is for people who love to drive, but who are also thrilled by automotive art and design and demand that their high-performance vehicles embrace a sustainable future. Our goal was to create a classic grand touring car, updated for the 21st century and engineered for customers who want to drive from Los Angeles to Napa Valley on a single charge.”
The American manufacturer has also made it clear that the battery-powered Ronin sports car will be produced in a limited number. More precisely, the manufacturer will produce merely 999 units, and each of those units will be offered with a starting price tag of $385,000. This price tag will bring the upcoming electric sports sedan into the same territory as Bentley’s range-topper Continental GTC Mulliner W12, which starts at approx. $378,000.
