Another EV is showing us the marvel of electricity with some 0-to-62 miles per hour accelerations
The electric cars are more and more like that geek from high school that has grown into a successful person, condescendingly smiling at you from his electric car.
Look at the Croatian-based Rimac now. The Concept_One is a 1,088 horsepower, 1,180 pound-feet (1,600 Newton-meters) four-wheel-drive electric supercar. It’s like… the Veyron of the electric world.
After looking at those figures above, are you really surprised the Concept_One (what’s with the underscore, though?) can go from a standstill to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.6 seconds? No, I guess you’re not. Would you be, if you’d find out Concept_One can shave 0.2 seconds from that time with the right surface and warmed-up tires?
For those who don’t know what Rimac is, a short preview is in order: Rimac Automobili is a Croatian car manufacturer specialized in electric vehicles. They are so in love with this technology that the first car (Concept_One) is known as the world’s fastest production electric vehicle.
Other Concept_One highlights: it has an 82 kWh battery with 205 miles (330 kilometers) range. Only eight units will be made, $980,000 each.
