Since Porsche’s first investment in 2018, the team at Rimac Automobil has doubled to nearly 1,000 people, and the Croatian technology company has continued to produce some of the world’s most advanced electrified powertrains, batteries, infotainment and other components related to electrification. Rimac Automobili now works with many major car manufacturers, including Hyundai, Kia, Porsche, Aston Martin, Automobili Pininfarina, Koenigsegg and many more.
Mate Rimac first dreamed of creating his own electric supercar in 2009, working in his garage in Croatia. Just two years later Rimac Automobili revealed the world’s first electric supercar, the Concept_One. With limited resources, Mate and a small team developed many of the components for the car in-house, while also developing electrified vehicle technology for other brands. Porsche’s first investment came in June 2018, and Hyundai Motor Group invested in May 2019.
In just 10 years, Rimac Automobili went from garage to global and this year will release its second generation electric hypercar, codenamed C_Two. Every major component of the C_Two has been designed, engineered and produced by the in-house team at Rimac. Following a multi-year development process of virtual and real-world testing and homologation, the C_Two will be revealed to the world in just a few months. The C_Two, limited to just 150 units, is available in the world’s key markets via Rimac Automobili’s global network of dealer partners.
