The Rimac Concept One: Taking Electric Supercars into the Future

The Rimac Automobili Concept One was a nice idea and it sparked a great deal of interest as a concept. The issue with concept cars is that it is seldom that they ever make it past the concept stage. Rimac has remedied this with the new electric car that is set to go into a limited production. Rimac may well be the company that leads us into the future with the realization of a dream that comes at a hefty price tag.

Will the Croation automaker lead the pack?

Rimac Automobili is couching themselves in the position for possibly becoming an automobile industry leader that takes us into the new generation of auto technology with the world’s fastest electric car. The Rimac Concept One may even outperform traditional fuel powered autos. We see the full potential for sparking a new trend in auto technology that promotes a greener approach that makes no sacrifice in luxury or in performance.

Rimac Concept One as a next generation

The Croatian designer has crossed all the Ts and dotted all the i’s with features and figures that outshine any of the current electric cars on the market, but they also give any fuel powered car a run for it’s money. The projected performance figures are quite impressive with fast acceleration and lightning speed that could signal the birth of the fastest supercar in the world, and it will be electric to boot. you may be wondering what these amazing figures rally are. Engineers predict that the Concept One will move from zero to sixty-two in just 2.8 seconds. With 1088 horse power pushing it, this car will reach its 600 kilometer electric range in the blink of an eye. The estimated top speed of the Concept one will top out at 190 mph. (372 miles) and a single charge.

Rimac Automobili steps forward with the announcement

It’s a big deal, even for a wealthy auto manufacturer to commit to the production of a revolutionary new vehicle that would be a first in the world. The Rimac Concept One is such a radical new advancement that there is a lot that could go wrong, and the reputation of the automaker is on the line as well as the millions that it takes for production. It’s not an easy commitment to make, but the firm has made it official that they will move ahead with the production of 88 examples of this new innovation. What could become a costly mistake could also be the successful endeavor that revolutionizes the audio industry and changes its face forever. It’s a chance that they seem willing to take.

Where Rimac Automobili is in the process

So far, the automaker has commissioned the production of the first 88 vehicles and they are currently taking reservations for the sales transactions. Now we get to the asking price. The new Concept Ones will go or a price tag of $980,000. Just $20,000 short of a million, but who’s going to split hairs on that deal?

It’s a million dollar car. Rimac Automobili did insert the caveat that production will commence, barring any unforseen issues. This was smart. We’re really hoping that there are no production delays because lot is riding on the success or failure of this vehicle when it hits the market. It’s a costly endeavor and only a select few will be giving it a test spin, but who knows? Perhaps this will be just the beginning of a new era in transportation that will usher in a more affordable and high performing series of electric cars.

Initial impressions

There is no doubt that the Concept One is in fact a brilliant concept and while some are quite excited about the possibilities, there are others who remain skeptical about the projections for performance of the car that remains only a concept until it’s been built, marketed and has established a brand line. Most hold a positive opinion, because a car that doesn’t downshift, make any noise or burn hazardous fuels is a lovely notion. Then you have those who will need to see the performance statistics proven for themselves in real time in order to believe it.

Rimac has held this dream for many years and with the assistance of car designer Adriano Mudri, he has brought his dream on the verge of becoming a reality. There may be a few kinks left to work out before the finished product is presented as a viable commodity, but we’re not privy to any of the issues that have been encountered so far.
