Croatian car manufacturer Rimac will show off their electric hypercar, the Concept_One, at next months’s Geneva Auto Show.
The Concept_One is the fastest production electric vehicle in the world, and the name is a little misleading — it’s no longer a concept car, as the first production model will be for sale at the Geneva Auto Show.
The car features for electric motors (one for each wheel), each connected to a single-speed transmission up front. At the rear, each drive unit is hooked up to a two-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The Concept_One, which weighs in at 1,850kg with 800kW of power and 1600Nm of torque, will reportedly do 0 to 100km/h in 2.6 seconds, getting up to 200km/h within 6.2 seconds and 300km/h in 14.2 seconds, topping out at 355 km/h. That’s not just fast for an electric car — that’s fast by any standards.
It’s not all brute power, either — the Concept_One offers comfort, control, track and drift driving modes to adapt to whatever mood you’re in.
Sounds good, right? Sadly, Rimac only plans to build eight production Concept_One cars at this stage, so you’ll probably never see one in the flesh, let alone own one (if you do get the opportunity to buy one, it’ll leave you very little change out of a million bucks).
Your move, Tesla.
