The world’s first all-electric hypercar — Rimac Automobili’s Concept_One, is getting a performance and battery upgrade for the 2018 Model Year. Additionally, the brand extends its presence by growing its dealer network in Europe, Middle-East and the USA.
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.
