It has been five years from study to production car and we will be seeing the final thing at the Geneva Motor Show next week. Here is everything you need to know about this rather special machine;

  • All Wheel Torque Vectoring (R-AWTV) system that is claimed to “precisely calculates the optimum torque for each wheel” separately, while also functioning as a traction control, stability control and “electric ABS”
  • Battery pack designed to deliver 1000 kW (1MW) of power when accelerating
  • Tips scales at 1850 kg
  • 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds and 0 to 200 in an insane 6.2

The founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili, Mate Rimac said:

“My goal was to not to create an electric version of existing supercars. I wanted to create technology to make the supercar considerably better in every regard – faster, more fun and more efficient. I wanted to make the supercar of the 21st century. The Concept_One showcases performances which were not considered possible for electric cars a few years ago. To reach that level of performance, we first had to develop the technology and then the car. The Concept_One has gone through four iterations from a concept to the production car. In every iteration, we have redesigned almost all systems from scratch in order to achieve the level of performance and quality that we have set for ourselves in the beginning. I am also extremely proud of our vertical integration – the Concept_One is a true Rimac Automobili product – down to the smallest details.”
