Rimac's 1,384HP Concept S Electric Hypercar Flew Under The Radar In Geneva


It seems like this year more than any other, the Geneva Motor Show is packed full of ultra-fast cars, capable of putting down 1,000 PS of more.

The Rimac Concept S is no different, in the sense that you can put pretty much any hypercar next to it and it's definitely not going to get embarrassed in a straight line drag race.

Now, what it is, is basically an all-wheel driven electric megacar, with 1,384 PS and 1,800 Nm (1,327 lb-ft) of torque available from as soon as you brush your toe against the accelerator.

The way it puts its power down is with the help of a two-speed dual-clutch gearbox, connected to each of the two independent rear wheels, plus a single speed gearbox working each of the front wheels. The battery has a maximum capacity of 82 kWh and can be charged with the help of a 22 kW on-board unit or via a DC Combo connection at up to 120 kW.

But now let's take a look at some of the numbers because they truly are as spectacular as it gets with these types of cars. The Concept S is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 5.6 seconds and 300 km/h (186 mph) in 13.1 seconds. Yes, it's quicker to 200 km/h than both the Koenigsegg Regera and the Bugatti Chiron.

However, the maximum speed is 365 km/h (226 mph), which means it would eventually lose a long distance drag race to both of the previously mentioned hypercars.
