Rimac Concept One
Rimac Automobili unveiled the world's first electric supercar - The Concept One. The Concept One is an exceptional supercar with a new propulsion system.
Rimac Automobili developed an unique powertrain which is divided into four sub-systems, each consisting of one motor, inverter and reduction gearbox. Each of those systems drives one wheel, completely independent one from the other. It's called All Wheel Torque Vectoring and allows a new approach to vehicle dynamics. Mate Rimac, CEO of Rimac Automobili says: "I believe that the electric motor is a much better machine compared to the ICE, in almost all aspects, especially for a sportscar.“
The exterior design is signed by Adriano Mudri: "Exploring the labyrinth of creativity, soon it was obvious the design had to be simple and clear with a lot of sporty elegance to easily catch up with its competitors in this power & exclusivity class. “The interior is designed by a team of former Pininfarina employees, led by Mr. Goran Popović. After the Rimac Automobili engineering team finished the development and prototyping of the interior parts, the company entrusted the vision of the Bulgarian custom studio Vilner for the elaboration of the interior, color combination and for the leather design accent. The result is a high-techsupercar interior which can be appealing and pleasant to interact with at the same time.
Rimac Automobili is a young company that develops and produces high performance electric vehicles, drive trains and battery systems. “Our first car evolved in a short period into a project that didn’t give an end result but a beginning of great new story, of the first world electric hyper car – The Concept(One)” Mate Rimac describes their beginnings. 20 great engineers and designers settled in Croatia near Zagreb are making something new and revolutionary.
