The cabriolet should have the longest EV range on the market.
The scissor doors should make it on the production model.
The Fisker Ronin will be a Tesla Roadster fighter.
Fisker has just unveiled the first image of its future four-door Ronin cabriolet, the vehicle expected to land on our roads somewhere in 2024. Production is expected to start in late summer 2023 for this convertible, which, according to its manufacturer, will become the vehicle with the longest range for a production electric vehicle on the market.
The first image doesn’t reveal all the styling details about this third model planned by Fisker, the manufacturer that has just started production of its Ocean SUV at the Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria. We’ll have to keep an eye on this new market breakthrough for the division, which has marketed plug-in hybrid cars in the past.
About this Ronin convertible, we do know that the front end will receive this illuminated panel that stretches from left to right with the headlights integrated into it, while the brand’s badge, also illuminated, will be affixed to the top of the hood, while the rest of the car’s nose will be quite simple.
Also note the plunging hood and slightly raised fenders to make room for the oversized wheels. As for the scissor doors, they might not make it to production, but you never know, especially if Fisker wants to attract customers who don’t hate attention. We’ll have to wait for more details or photos before we know how the second doors will open, though.
As for performance or even range, Henrik Fisker revealed earlier this year that the Ronin would be capable of driving an estimated 660 miles (or 1,062 km) between recharges, a very impressive range, even if it’s based on the more optimistic WLTP calculation method.
Will the Ronin be the first car from the group to leave the brand’s workshops with the famous solid-state batteries? It’s too early to tell, but with such promises, this convertible may not be as affordable as the Ocean SUV or the Pear car also announced for late 2024, the city car that will be assembled by Fisker’s second production partner, Foxconn.
Indeed, expect a price slightly below $200,000 (in U.S. dollars) for this future flagship car for the company. The much-anticipated Tesla Roadster tops the list, but other sporty electric cars will eventually join the automotive arena too. Is this Fisker Ronin materializes, we might be in for quite a surprise.
