800kW Rimac One EV Concept to be unveiled @ Frankfurt show

Croatian company, Rimac Automobile, will be unveiling an all-new 800kW electric supercar concept called the Rimac One Concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Rimac has released a video to build anticipation.

Although the body and design of the Rimac One Concept is concealed under a cover, we know that the Rimac will use four separate liquid cooled permanent magnet electric motors each with it's own reduction gearbox and inverter.

Overall output is said to be 800kW, or 1088 hp with 3800 Nm of instant torque. Other claimed figures include a 0-100km/h time of just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 305km/h. Rimac says it all weighs 1650kg and has a 92kWh battery giving a range of 600km on a single charge.

If these details are accurate, it would make the Rimac one of the fastest electric cars ever made.

We look forward to providing full details of the car upon its unveiling. The show starts on September 13.
