All-electric performance hits an inflection point

Electric vehicles are on the rise. The statement works figuratively if you consider the recent proliferation of new EV models and technology, but it also works literally considering the results from the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Crowding the podium at last year’s “Race to the Clouds” was a duo of all-electric racers – a first in the event’s nearly century-long history. One of those cars was the E-Runner Concept_One, a joint effort by Japanese racing driver Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima and Croatian EV-builder Rimac Automobili. Incredibly, Rimac is now gearing up to release a production version of the Concept_One, and it’s packing sensational styling, a lovingly crafted interior, and output figures with four digits.

I wanted to make the supercar of the 21st century.”
