The electric car may be starting to pull in the customers willing to save the planet at a cost, but what about those who don’t care about Mr polar bear? What can battery power offer them? Well up until recently cars from Tesla were the only option and in comparison to their combustion counterparts, they didn’t exactly set the world on fire. However, electric car might just have a shock or two in store come the Frankfurt motor show.
New manufacturer Rimac Automotive are bringing the worlds fist all-electric hyper-car into existence. With 1,088BHP on tap, this is the Concept One and it will do 0-62MPH in 2.8 seconds. Key to that acceleration is the cars mind boggling 3800lb-ft of torque!!! That is insanity in number form. The top speed has been limited to 190MPH, the only sensible aspect of the car.
There is no word on range as yet but the Concept One sure has captured our attention.
