Electric vehicles have been a growing industry for some time now, but car enthusiasts still seem to approach the subject with some skepticism. The EVs are eco-friendly, their design increasingly futuristic, and yet, they are so quiet. Where’s the engine revving, the sweet purring of a powerful beauty showing off?
Well, if you needed any proof in favour of EV ferocity, Richard Hammond should have eradicated all your doubts along with that poor Rimac Concept One he crashed in Switzerland in June, writes The Wall Street Journal. Instead of coming out of the accident at least a bit shaken up, Hammond showered Rimac’s latest creation with adoration. (Jeremy Clarkson also had something to say on the subject.)
“Mr. Hammond said he has struggled to describe the physical intensity of futuristic whips like the Rimac, a car with four advanced motors, all-wheel drive and liquid-cooled lightning: a battery capable of instantaneously discharging a full megawatt of power“, cites the renowned journal, adding how Hammond concluded that thanks to the Concept One, we “need a new vocabulary” to talk about cars from now on. Nice to know that Croatian talent marks the start of a new era.
In a long, detailed piece that lists all the advantages of the latest EV models, Concept One gets the fully deserved spotlight. Read the full article here.
