Rimac has released the second video in a series that goes behind-the-scenes at its Croatian production facility.
In this video, chief executive Mate Rimac initially takes us through the facility’s carbon fiber area. The car manufacturer uses a machine to cut out pieces of carbon and workers then use molds to transform them into various parts used throughout the vehicle. When they’re molded, the carbon pieces are sent into the autoclave to bake and are then moved into the paint shop, where they can be clear-coated or painted in a series of different shades.
Next, Mate takes viewers into Rimac’s battery area, where class-leading battery packs are manufactured. Not only does Rimac make batteries for itself, but it is also supplying its technologies to Pininfarina for the Battista, Aston Martin for the Valkyrie, and Koenigsegg for the Regera.
Rimac also builds it own electric motors and is looking to expand its factory to include more testing facilities so it doesn’t have to test its batteries and motors off-site. The video concludes by showing off the final Concept One models being built by Rimac and the ongoing work into building the first handful of C_Two prototypes.
Rimac was only founded a decade ago and already has more than 500 employees. It has also attracted investments from huge car industry players such as Hyundai and Porsche and could be considered alongside the likes of Koenigsegg and Pagani as one of just a few exotic car manufacturers to have actually established itself as a viable business in the last two decades.
