Concept_One upgraded to outperform itself.
Numerous developments in the powertrain, battery system and electronics enabled Rimac Automobili to boost its flagship’s performance. The power increased by 100 kW to a total of 900 kW / 1224 hp which enables the Concept_One to reach 100 km/h in 2,5 seconds and 60 miles per hour in 2,4 seconds. 200 km/h are reached in 6 seconds while the 300 km/h mark falls after just 14 seconds. While the performance is staggering, Rimac Automobili’s Torque Vectoring System is being constantly developed and upgraded to keep the power under control, accessible and fun. By controlling each motor (and thus wheel) very precisely 100 times per second, the Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring brings unparalleled driving dynamics and usability.
With the powertrain and software updates, the Concept_One’s battery system also received an upgrade. With the challenge of delivering 1 MW of power while enabling of up to 350 km range the battery capacity was upgraded to 90 kWh.
Concept_One combines all the know-how, technology and experience the company has generated since its founding. The Concept_One is the realization of the idea that an electric powertrain can make a sportscar not only faster but also more adjustable, agile and fun.
Rimac Automobili has managed not only to become a recognised hypercar manufacturer – but also a key partner for many global brands. The company has increased to over 250 employees and is scaling up the production of its key components and technologies for the industry, enabling further growth into a full electrification partner for global OEMs.
While most projects remain undisclosed Rimac VP of Business Development Marko Pejkovic comments: “We are proud to be partners with Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, Tajima and many others. Recognition from their sides proves that Rimac is here to change the future of mobility.“
