The Fisker Ronin Will Birth Its Own Unique Segment

The Fisker Ronin Will Birth Its Own Unique Segment

The Fisker Ronin is a bold attempt to reintroduce the long-forgotten four-door convertible body style while adding performance to the mix

Fisker Automotive seems to have made it a mission to give us cars that defy current trends. While it certainly is risky business, the company’s latest creation – the Fisker Ronin – is one that might actually be embraced wholeheartedly by the public. That’s because the Fisker Ronin brings back a body style that we haven’t seen in over 50 years – the four-door convertible. Moreover, it boasts impressive figures, which could make even those looking at a Tesla Model S Plaid reconsider.

600 Miles Of Range, 0-60 mph In Two Seconds; The Fisker Ronin Could Be A Game-Changer!

The Fisker Ronin will also be the world’s first four-door electric convertible!

Shortly after Fisker announced the electric Ocean SUV, we were offered details about a second project set to arrive in 2024. Named Pear (no, not the fruit, but an abbreviation of ’Personal Electric Automotive Revolution’), this model will be another SUV inspired by the Ocean and with a driving range of 250 miles.

However, it looks like 2024 will be a big year for Fisker, as the company just teased the third model. It will be called ’Ronin’ and will be unveiled in August 2023, with production starting in the second half of 2024.

The Range-Topping Fisker Ocean Extreme Will Put Most Sports Cars to Shame

The Fisker Ocean will make 536 horses, which is more than even the $100,000-Porsche Taycan 4S!

It has been over a year since Fisker returned to the automotive scene with the Ocean SUV. The all-electric SUV was revealed with a smart exterior and interior, 250 miles of range, 2.9 seconds to 60 mph, etc. These impressive specs made sure the Ocean created a lot of noise and put companies like Ford and Tesla on notice.

Now the automaker has revealed that the Ocean will make over 500 horses, which is a stark improvement over the previously confirmed highest output of 302 horses.

Fisker Officially Announces An Extreme Off-Road Package For The Ocean Called 'Force E'

Fisker Officially Announces An Extreme Off-Road Package For The Ocean Called ’Force E’

With a portable water tank, this package will make the Ocean a rescue vehicle as well

Earlier this month, Fisker teased a new off-road avatar of the recently-unveiled Ocean SUV.The renders released back then showed the SUV with off-road tires, wider stance and featured ‘UN’ lettering on it suggesting that it would be pitched as a rescue vehicle.

As it turns out, Fisker has made this official. Moniker’d as ‘Force E’, the off-road package is targeting rescue operations and will certainly invoke interest among various organizations involved in humanitarian activities. Well, the automaker seems serious about the Ocean SUV after a couple of not-so-successful attempts with its earlier products.

Fisker Is Teasing a "Rescue and Mil-Spec" Package for the Ocean SUV

Fisker Is Teasing a "Rescue and Mil-Spec" Package for the Ocean SUV

It seems like Fisker has a lot of hopes pinned on this SUV

The Fisker Ocean SUV was unveiled at the 2020 Consumer Electronics. The company has had beautiful vehicles in the past, but none of them really hit the market. Henrik Fisker, the CEO of Fisker Inc., has the propensity to overcommit and under-deliver, so no one took him seriously when he announced in 2019 that Fisker is planning to build an affordable electric four-wheel-drive SUV with a range of 300 miles.

However, Fisker not only revealed the SUV, but also announced a sub-$30,000 starting price tag – after discounting for the credits – that took everyone by surprise. Now, the company has teased a new off-road trim for the SUV that looks tough and could invoke a lot of interest.

2022 Fisker Ocean

2022 Fisker Ocean

A well-rounded, complete package that offers absolute bang for the buck

Back in March 2019, Henrik Fisker, the CEO of Fisker Inc., announced that the company is planning to build an affordable electric four-wheel-drive SUV with a range of 300 miles. But no one really took him seriously given his propensity to overcommit and under-deliver.

Make no mistake; Fisker has produced some of the most beautiful-looking vehicles to date, but the company never really hit it off. This time, however, Fisker has lived up to its word and revealed its first electric SUV at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. Called the Fisker Ocean, the SUV looks to be a wholesome package and has enough to take on some of the fiercest competitors in the market. But will the Ocean see the light of the day?

Fisker To Come Out With Its Electric SUV, But Is The Company Serious About It?

Fisker To Come Out With Its Electric SUV, But Is The Company Serious About It?

The company is just not able to move forward with production of some promising concepts it has launched over the years

Fisker has been as fickle as a cat with its products in the auto industry. For what it’s worth, the company comes up with some really nice concepts that garner a lot of attention. But the concept-to-production model ratio does not induce enough faith in the brand. Such is the company’s reputation that no one really takes Fisker that seriously anymore. Recently, Henrik Fisker tweeted a teaser image that looks like a pickup truck. With a lot of products already announced but none of them making it to production, should we even be excited about the Fisker pickup truck?

2019 Karma Pininfarina GT Coupe

2019 Karma Pininfarina GT Coupe

Does everything that Pininfarina touches turn to gold?

Karma Automotive, the company that emerged after the bankruptcy of Henrik Fisker’s first automotive venture, came to the 2019 Shanghai with its own "Big Three": A flamboyant open-top concept, the revised Revero GT and this lavish and elegant two-door sports car penned by Pininfarina which could be produced in limited quantities by Pininfarina if enough buyers get together. As it’s based on the Revero’s underpinnings, it should be at least as quick and agile if not more so.

Karma has been around for a few years already, but it was seen as a stagnant company. After all, its only product has been the Revero, essentially an exercise in rebadging the Fisker Karma. In a way, it makes sense as Chinese company Wanxiang who bought Fisker’s assets (as well as a production plant and other things) paid over $149 million for them and, anyway, the Karma’s bad rep was never due to its design since it’s arguably one of the prettiest four-door GTs of the 21st century (just look at the curvaceous rear fenders).

Last year, Karma introduced the Aliso, a limited-edition version of the Revero and the company announced that only 15 will be made with a base price of $145,000, some $15,000 on top of the Revero’s base MSRP of $130,000. This luscious coupe we see here should be at least as expensive if it will be put into production. If not, just look at it in concept form and think that it’s a source of inspiration for Karma products to roll out in the near future.

Fisker Bankrolls Development of New EV SUV With Talent From Toyota and VW

Fisker Bankrolls Development of New EV SUV With Talent From Toyota and VW

Niche manufacturer Fisker released new renders of its upcoming SUV that should be unveiled in prototype form before the end of 2019

Less than a month since we saw the first previews of Fisker’s sort-of-affordable electric SUV, the company releases another preview and more information on the development process. Fisker is enlisting the help of a former Toyota and Volkswagen Manufacturing Executive to make the model a hit in a world that’s soon to be flooded by Rivians and NIOs, among others.

Fisker, the company that was once making outlandish sports cars on BMW or Mercedes-Benz underpinnings is no more. Henrik Fisker, the founder of Fisker Automotive, seemed unphased by the bankruptcy of his company by bouncing back in 2016 when he announced that he’s establishing Fisker Inc. Since then, Fisker unveiled an almighty yacht concept, a boxy electric shuttle, and an electric sedan called eMotion. Now, apparently, next in his sights in the compact SUV segment which he plans to tackle with a vehicle that should cost about $40,000.

Fisker Will Tap Into The ’Affordable’ EV Market Fray With An Electric SUV

On paper, the SUV looks better than the Tesla Model Y

Do you remember Henrik Fisker? He is the man behind the original Karma PHEV that drove Fisker Automotive into bankruptcy. However, Fisker has now announced a sub $40,000 SUV that will be one of the three mass-market cars that his company, Fisker Inc., plans to build in the near future. The automaker is aiming for a 300-mile range and is planning to launch this unnamed SUV in the second half of 2021. Will Mr. Fisker be able to secure a chunk of the market this time around?

Fisker’s Second Run Looks Promising Thanks to an Investment From Caterpillar for Solid-State Battery Technology

Will EV battery tech see use in heavy machinery of the future?

Competition in the all-electric passenger vehicle segment is heating up, and one of the major points of contention is battery technology. Lithium-ion packs are all the rage these days, but critical figures like range-per-charge and charge times are lagging compared to the internal combustion alternatives. However, technology development might soon turn the tables, and now, it looks as though Caterpillar is considering solid-state batteries as a possible investment for the future.

The Fisker eMotion Has a Beautiful Interior

It’s not what we expected, and that’s a great thing

The Fisker eMotion’s debut at the Consumer Electronics Show caught a few people by surprise. The debut itself was expected, but the features in the car were more than what most people thought they’d be. The eMotion’s interior is a good example of that. In a word, it’s beautiful. That doesn’t come as a shock to those who know Henrik Fisker’s work, but in some ways, the legendary auto designer seems to have outdone himself this time.
