Rimac Concept_One was born of the idea that an electric powertrain can make a sportscar not only faster but also more adjustable, agile and fun. Rimac Automobili was founded to push the limits of technology and electric powertrains – the Concept_One combines all the know-how, technology and experience that the company has created since its founding.
The Concept_One is powered by four extremely powerful permanent magnet electric motors, one for each wheel, located in the center of both axles. The architecture is radically different compared to traditional combustion engines so a completely new vehicle platform had to be develops to use all the advantages that such a layout brings. In order to reduce the weight and make it possible to package such a powerful powertrain system into the chassis, all powertrain systems were developed alongside within the same team to enable a high degree of integration between the components. The result is a perfect weight distribution and extremely low center of gravity.
Distributing a total of 900 KW /1224 HP and 1600 Nm of torque, the Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring system precisely calculates the optimum torque for each wheel. R-AWTV provides unseen flexibility and grip by controlling each motor individually one hundred times per second. This enables the Concept_One to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in just 2,5 seconds, and, to 200 km/h in 6 seconds, and to 300 km/h in 14 seconds. The R-AWTV functions as a traction control, stability control and electric ABS system that also commands the 4-wheel regenerative braking of up to 400 kW that works together with the carbon-ceramic braking system.
The Concept_One’s battery pack is designed to deliver 1000 kW or 1 MW of power during acceleration and to absorb 400 kW during braking.
Each of the 8450 battery cells is individually controlles through the in-house developes Rimac Battery Management System, which ensures optimal conditions for a long battery life and long-term performance.
The Concept_One will be produced in the total of eight units.
The Concept_S is built to utilize the maximum potential of the Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring System (R-AWTV). Compared to the Concept_One, it has more power and torque, less weight, and an aggressive aerodynamic package. The aerodynamic elements enhance downforce by 34% (up to 650 kg of load) which press the chassis to the ground. Combined with high-performance tires, higher levels of grip are enabled with opening a wide spectrum of extreme setups for the Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring System_S (R-AWTV_S). With 1384 hp and 1800 Nm of torque, the Concept_S raises the bar of dynamic performance.
Distributing a total of 1018 KW / 1384 hp and 1800 Nm of torque, the Rimac All Wheel Torque Vectoring System_S (R-AWTV_S) provides unseen flexibility and grip by controlling each motor individually one hundered times per second. This enables Concept_S to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in just 2,5 seconds, and, to 200 km/h in 5,6 seconds, and to 300 km/h in 13,1 seconds. The R-AWTV functions as a traction control, stability control and “electric ABS” system that also commands the 4-wheel regenerative braking of up to 400 kW that works together with the carbon-ceramic braking system.
