That means it will have more than 1,088 electric horsepower.
These days, only getting to 100 kilometres per hour in two and a half seconds in your EV is just too pedestrian.
And as a result, Rimac Automobili’s COO Monika Mikac revealed to CarBuzz his plans for the development (and future delivery) of a new, improved all-electric model.
According to the interview, most of the Rimac’s current Concept_One EVs (of which, only eight will be made), are pre-sold (at ~$1.2 million USD a pop), and the delivery of the first plug-in supercar is happening this month.
“Most of them are already pre-sold. The first car is just leaving to the customer, an American,”
The Rimac Concept_One is equipped with a 82 kWh battery (good for more than 320 kilometres of range) and four electric motors – putting out a total of 1,088 hp, with 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) coming up in about 2.6 seconds.
Following that car, a track-only Rimac Concept_S is also heading into super-limited production – with only two units being built (at a cost of $1.6 million USD apiece). Those two deliveries are expected in 2018, as a full year is yet needed to build the offering.
More interesting however is the company’s plans for the future…once these current ~10 EVs are built and delivered.
The Croatian company intends to introduce an all new car, produced in higher numbers – this time up to about 20 units annually. Making current customers not-so-happy we are sure, is the fact Rimac says the future EV will take things up a notch higher.
“…really exclusive and even more high-performance than the Concept One. It’ll be produced around 20 units per year.”
