Fisker reveals all-electric luxury GT sports car

Fisker Inc. revealed the luxurious electric sports vehicle it intends to add as the third model to its lineup.

The Project Ronin concept, code-named after the 1998 spine chiller featuring Robert De Niro, is a long-range, four-passenger grand tourer with quite a lot of room, as per Rivian.

“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 in a statement. “Project Ronin will be a showcase for our internal engineering, powertrain, and software capabilities.”

The automaker shared no further details on Project Ronin, which is scheduled to be the company’s third production vehicle. The organization said the vehicle signals the brand’s “return to luxury design roots” subsequent to launching its initial two nameplates as affordably priced EVs set to rival mainstream models.

Henrik Fisker crafted the BMW Z8 and many other Aston Martin models prior to starting Fisker Automotive in 2007, which declared bankruptcy in 2004. Fisker Inc., a new and separate organization, was launched by the automaker in 2016, with the startup going public in 2020.

The automaker said on Wednesday it counted in excess of 40,000 reservations for its very first EV, the $37,499 Ocean SUV, which is on target to start production in November. Fisker declared last November that it’s making a variant of the battery-electric utility vehicle for Pope Francis.
