Geneva 2016: Rimac Concept_One ready to enter production

By ,

First seen at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show and then brought back under the spotlight last year when the company promised to deliver a production model by the end of 2015, the Rimac Concept_One electric supercar will finally make its global debut in production form at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show.

While the initial plan was to build 88 units, today’s press release suggests that only eight will see the light of day.

The production Rimac Concept_One uses four in-wheel motors to generate a total of 1,088 horsepower and accelerate from 0-100 km/h in a mind-blowing time of 2.6 seconds. It also reaches 200 km/h in 6.2 seconds and 300 km/h in just 14.2 seconds. 

The battery pack is designed to deliver 1,000 kW or 1MW of power during acceleration and to absorb 400 kW during braking. Each of the 8,450 battery cells is individually controlled through the in-house developed Rimac Battery Management System. Heck, even the tools, jigs and moulds are designed and produced by Rimac.

Meanwhile, the Rimac Infotainment system gathers information from over 500 different sensors and projects them in beautiful graphics on the central display in real time.
