Rimac has, improbably, grown from a tiny Croatian startup founded in 2009 to become a major player in the high-performance EV realm. Its electric hypercars boast sleek, low-slung bodywork and enormous power, and its battery and powertrain technologies have brought investment from Hyundai and Porsche. In 2021, Porsche even created a joint venture with the nascent automaker, shifting its storied Bugatti brand under the same umbrella as Rimac’s car business in preparation for a gas-free future. Rimac began deliveries of its second model, the Nevera, in 2022, which uses the same 1877-hp powertrain that underpins the Pininfarina Battista. Now with control of Bugatti, plus a separate technology division supplying parts to other manufacturers, Rimac’s future looks bright.
