Fisker Ronin gets UK price, still claims to be 'most sustainable' 1000bhp supercar

Published: 04 September 2023 Updated: 14 September 2023

► Fisker Ronin electric ‘super GT convertible’
► Claims more than 1000bhp and 600-mile range
► Just 999 to be made, priced from £371,900

UK pricing has been announced for the new Fisker Ronin – an electric ‘super GT convertible’ from the mind of Henrik Fisker and his EV brand. It’s certainly a very dramatic-looking electric car, enhancing the attraction if its curves with a folding carbonfibre hardtop and butterfly doors.

But what’s really likely to justify the £371,900 asking price is the claimed 1000bhp+ performance from the triple-motor drive system and promised driving range of over 600 miles per charge.

The new Ronin supercar is just one part of a bold new plan for Fisker Inc., which aims to tackle the EV heartland with the budget-priced Fisker Pear. Meanwhile the Fisker Ocean tackles the premium electric SUV segment.

The Ronin was first revealed at a major event in early August 2023, and now the brand has shown the car in Europe at an event timed to coincide with the IAA Munich motor show.

Fisker… who are they again?

The automotive brand that’s been developing and engineering the new Fisker Ocean SUV, which has recently gone on sale in Europe.

The brain behind the operation is Henrik Fisker – an automotive designer, coachbuilder and EV visionary who’s been focused on electrification and low-emission motoring since the late 2000s. Fisker’s first car project was the Karma – a range-extender GT that was (admittedly only briefly) in production in 2011.

Now, though, with Fisker Inc., Henrik and his team are entering the mainstream with some big recent announcements and a plan for growth. On top of the Ocean and the Ronin, the brand has announced a smaller Pear SUV and a new electric pick-up called the Fisker Alaska.

Cool – so what’s special about the Ronin?

First of all, look at it. The Ronin’s curvy silhouette is clean and without too much visual fuss, and yet it still manages to look like the rest of the Fisker range. And the brand is throwing every possible denominator at the Ronin; it’s a GT! It’s a convertible! It seats five! It’s a supercar!

The Ronin uses an aluminium space frame beneath its slinky bodywork, and includes massive 23-inch carbonfibre wheels, a folding carbonfibre roof, and rear-hinged rear doors for easier access to the back seats. Fisker also says the Ronin will use recycled and sustainable materials inside and features a 17.1-inch infotainment screen.

Fisker’s claims don’t get any less wild when it comes to performance, either. The brand is targeting a 600-mile range from its battery pack and e-motors, as well as projecting a power output of more than 1000bhp for a 0-62mph sprint over with in 2.3 seconds and a 170mph top speed.

Want one? Fisker is taking deposits now, and expects to start producing them in the second half of 2025.
