If you’d prefer that your electric car come not from Japan, the U.S., or Germany, but rather Croatia, we have some good news for you: the Rimac Concept_One, a Croatian EV supercar, is headed to a production-ready debut in London this fall.
Rimac Automobili is the Croatian automaker created by 24-year-old Mate Rimac, who hired designers who “used to work for the fabled Italian styling house Pininfarina” to pen the Concept_One’s form. The details are sketchy, but the Concept_One’s form is surprisingly sultry.
On paper, the Concept_One’s specifications are incredible, especially for an electric vehicle. It has four electric motors — one placed at each wheel — and their combined maximum output is 1088 hp, more than the original Bugatti Veyron. Like the Veyron, Rimac’s wondercar can allegedly sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds– 2.8 to be exact — and it tops out at 190 mph. It carries a 92-kWh battery pack that provides a claimed range figure of 373 miles. That battery pack is primarily the reason why the car weighs so much: it tips the scales at just under 4100 pounds.
Rimac promises that the total production will be limited to 88 units, but at a cool $1 million each. The firm formally unveil the production car, previewed in the photos above, at the Salon Prive supercar show in London the first week of September. If all goes according to plan, Rimac hopes to commence deliveries shortly thereafter.
