In recent years, the electric vehicle industry has been flourishing with new players entering the market. One such automaker is Croatia’s very own Rimac Automobili. Founded by Mate Rimac, a 35-year-old car enthusiast, the company has quickly made a name for itself in the industry.
It all started when Rimac blew the engine in an old BMW he used to race as a teenager. Rather than giving up on his beloved car, he decided to rebuild it with an electric drivetrain. To his surprise, the modified vehicle performed exceptionally well, even winning a few races. This experience inspired Rimac to establish his own electric vehicle company in 2009.
Fast forward to the present day, and Rimac Automobili has released its highly anticipated electric supercar, the Nevera. Priced at a staggering $2.1 million, this luxurious vehicle aims to compete with other high-end sports cars in the market.
To test the capabilities of the Rimac Nevera, CNBC’s John Rosevear took it for a spin on the challenging canyon roads above Malibu. The thrilling experience showcased the exceptional performance and handling of the electric supercar. With remarkable acceleration and precise handling, the Nevera certainly lives up to the hype surrounding it.
As Croatia’s first and only automaker, Rimac Automobili has achieved great success in a relatively short amount of time. The company’s commitment to innovation and electric mobility has positioned it as a leading player in the industry.
