According to the story by Electrek, the company was initially founded by Mate Rimac in 2009 and had been working on developing electric hypercars since then. Rimac automobili’s initial EV, the Concept_One was first introduced back in 2016 and was actually considered one of the fastest production vehicles in the world despite only eight units produced.
Rimac released another EV, the Concept_Two, which debuted in 2018 and was, later on, named the Nevera. The electric hypercar saw a larger production scale compared to its predecessors, with 150 units produced worth $2 million each.

In recent years, the company started to expand its tech as a supplier of components for electric vehicles for other OEMs like Aston Martin and Koenigsegg. Porsche, a fellow speed enthusiast, has shown its interest in Rimac Automobili through multiple investments.
Both of them formed the Rimac Group that was acquired by Bugatti, a known supercar developer, which hints at a glimpse of even more electrified hypercars expected to come in the future. A recent press release revealed details regarding the progress of the company’s new global headquarters.
