Rimac offers powertrain parts to industry and individuals

The Rimac R&D team developed both the Concept_One and the technology under the carbon-fiber skin in order to achieve the Concept_One’s remarkable performance. Rimac Automobili is now offering cutting-edge technology and their services to the industry and individuals. The company’s web-site has been updated to offer powertrain components for sale.

Founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili, Mate Rimac says: “Pioneers have always been at the forefront of technological advancement of mankind. Rimac Automobili has challenged the status-quo by having the vision to revolutionize and reinvent the sportscar with its unique technology. Today we are excited to offer customers the opportunity to use our technology and know-how to create new and exciting products. Our biggest advantage is that we are to deliver the full service – powertrain, batteries, design, chassis, moulds, body-work, infotainment systems and many other aspects of the vehicle. We can lead the entire process from the idea to the finished product under one roof, what enables us to act fast and efficient. Being a car manufacturer ourselves, we know what it takes to develop a car and how hard it can be to integrate systems from various suppliers. Now it is possible to source everything from one address.”

Rimac Automobili’s CTO, Igor Pongrac explains that Rimac Automobili drivetrain systems such as motors and transmissions, battery systems and BMS, power distribution and management, infotainment systems, low voltage electric systems and a variety of Auxiliary systems will be on sale. We note that neither the power electronics (motor controllers) or the torque vectoring system controlling all four motors is being offered for sale at this stage. We also note that the dual motor looks very similar in specification to the recently announced Brusa Double Traction Drive DTDP1

Rimac Automobili is still working on producing the world’s fastest electric supercar. The Company came into public focus in September 2011 after presenting their first model, the Concept_One, at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The company claims their Cocnept_One reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) from standstill in less than 3 seconds and accelerates to over 300 km/h thanks to its unique drivetrain system with over 1.000 horsepower.
