We all remember Rimac Concept One, don’t we? For reasons including it’s one of the very few electric supercars in the world and well, Richard Hammond was involved in a major crash driving the Rimac Concept One and ending up in a ball of fire. When the first Rimac concept was unveiled during the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show, it was quite unique as there weren’t many players in the electric segment. Now though, the scenario is changing as major car brands make a shift towards electric powertrains. Hence, Rimac seems to folded up its sleeves and there is a Concept Two on way, due for a public unveiling on 6 March during the Geneva Motor Show.
Rimac Concept One is already a handful in terms of power. The four-motor electric powertrain on the Rimac Concept One makes 1,088 hp, which can be translated to 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and a top speed of over 350 km/h. Time will tell what changes are made to the electric motors or their power generation, but it is being reported that Rimac Concept Two may focus more on comfort and a bigger range on one full charge – bigger than Concept One’s 345 km.
Only about eight-10 units of the Rimac Concept One were ever built, one may have been destroyed in the Hammond incident. Croatian manufacturer Rimac Automobili plans to open more dealerships in the US. The new retailers will join Manhattan Motorcars, which currently represents Rimac’s only US sales channel.
Rimac may or may not call the new car Concept Two. Imagine Rimac launching their 126th car and calling it Concept 126, doesn’t sound very right. Anyhow, we’ll know in March what will it be called and what will it look like, but considering the teaser, it seems we do have something to be excited about.
