Rimac Automobili is a Croatian car manufacturer headquartered in Sveta Nedelja, Croatia, that develops and produces electric sports cars, drivetrains, and battery systems and brings together the most advanced hyperarcs in the world with a globally renowned team developing high-performance electrification, autonomous and software solutions for the world’s largest OEMs. It all began with one man and his dream, in a garage Mate Rimac the founder and CEO of Rimac Group. The company was founded in 2009 by Mate Rimac with the vision to create the sports car of the 21st century but it all started back in 2007 when as a hobby garage activity of the founder Mate Rimac.
Working on his own, he managed to convert his BMW 3 Series (E30) to incorporate an electric powertrain and subsequently gained attention from the press and investors. And this is how it all started Rimac Automobili’s first model, Concept One is known as the world’s fastest-production electric vehicle. Their goal is to show the world fantastic engineering through their electric hypercars and advanced technologies. They are designed, engineered, and manufactured in-house and demonstrate what is possible when innovation and passion are given free rein. Our engineering team creates core EV systems in-house, from power-dense drivetrain systems to highly advanced autonomous driving and unique user experiences enabled through our infotainment technologies.
After starting Rimac Automobili in 2011 with just a handful of people, Mate has grown from a specialist component manufacturer to a series production hypercar and technology powerhouse, employing over 1300 dedicated employees. Still guided by Mate’s unwavering quest for performance perfection and relentless enthusiasm. They enter a new chapter in Rimac’s history with the launch of the all-new Nevera hypercar, which follows on from the Concept One The fastest electric car in the world was the Rimac Concept One, which can reach speeds of up to 221 mph. The car has a range of 372 miles and a price tag of $1.2 million. The Rimac Concept One was a high-performance electric car developed by Rimac Automobili.
The car is powered by four electric motors that generate a total of 1,224 horsepower. The Concept One can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
The Rimac Nevera is built as the successor to the Rimac Concept One. The Nevera is the world’s fastest accelerating production vehicle that goes 0-100 in just 1.97 secs which makes it quick it comes with a breathtaking 1914 horsepower generated by its four electric motors and 2360 nm of torque and the top speed is 412km/h which makes it the fastest electric production car in the world and with a big battery pack of 120 kwh which has a range of 489 kilometers on one full charge.
The car was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show as the Rimac C Two, it was later renamed the Nevera upon its launch. It is the automaker’s second car after the Rimac Concept One and is described as “the ultimate electric hypercar driving experience“. The name Nevera comes from the Croatian word for sudden and short storms, usually accompanied by lightning, which occur primarily along the Croatian Adriatic coast. At present the company has joined hands with Bugatti Automobiles, to create a new automotive and technological powerhouse. Uniting Rimac’s technical expertise and lean operations with Bugatti’s 110-year heritage of design and engineering prowess represents a fusion of leading automotive minds.
Both brands will continue to operate independently, with Rimac Automobili retaining its current premises on the outskirts of Zagreb, Croatia, and Bugatti production continuing in Molsheim, France. It has taken a two-pronged approach the industry has not seen before, it’s continuing to make hypercars such as Bugatti Rimac while using the knowledge gleaned from that process to develop technology to supply other automakers through its Rimac Technology subsidiary. Rimac Technology will continue to innovate, developing vehicle systems and technologies for many global OEMs. Such innovative technology can also be deployed in future Bugatti and Rimac models.
