Rimac Concept_One to Debut at the Salon Privé in September
It is currently the only ‘EV hypercar’ that we know of, and it would genuinely challenge, and probably beat, most conventionally-powered rivals, because powerful EVs are extremely quick, as this EV M3 proves - the Rimac is twice as powerful as the BMW, at 1,088 hp. However, unlike most EVs, which run out of juice way too soon, the Concept_One has an outstanding maximum range, of 596 km (373 miles), thanks to its 92 kWh battery pack.
The company’s CEO, 24 year-old Croatian, Mate Rimac, said ‘We started with a blank sheet of paper. The idea was to create an exceptional supercar with a new propulsion concept. What we have here is a fully-fledged hypercar that is as powerful as a Bugatti, as stylish as a Ferrari, and as luxurious as a Mercedes, all while managing to forsake even the tiniest sip of gasoline.’ We can’t wait to see it in action, and driven as it should!
