March 16, 2019 – International acclaim and successful new product launches, it is all happening for Mate Rimac at the moment, with a feature in The Economist the latest exposure.
It is becoming increasingly hard to keep up with Mate Rimac, and not just because he makes the fastest cars in the world.
It seems not a day goes by without another achievement of media spotlight for the young Croatian entrepreneur, who single-handedly built a car industry in a country where none exists. But while the stereotype is that Rimac Automobili builds cars for the super rich, the core business is technology, as he explained in a major 2016 interview on Croatian television, which was translated by TCN in 2016.
Rimac once again had a spectacular Geneva International Motor Show, and the impact of Rimac Automobili was highlighted in a post on his Facebook page:
What makes us very unique in Geneva (and automotive industry/history in general) is that our products and technologies are represented in many other brand’s cars and stands at the show. And not “just” with any parts but with key enables for these cars to even be possible. It is quite incredible that out of the 5 hybrid/electric supercars coming to the market (Aston Martin Valkyrie, Koenigsegg Regera, Pininfarina Batista, Mercedes AMG Project 1, Rimac C_Two), 4 have at least our battery system (some of them much more), which makes Sveta Nedelja the world capital of high-performance hybrid/EV systems. At the same time, there is much more going on behind the scenes – will be an interesting time.
And the industry media has been quick to take notice:
“Rimac is the company that currently holds all the aces. Not Tesla, not Toyota.”
Last night’s focus was in Zagreb, for the launch of the Greyp G6 smart bike. You can read more about that in this TCN report, or watch the product launch above.
Also named in the top 100 digital champions of Europe by the Financial Times, Mate Rimac also appears in this week’s edition of The Economist, Speed King: a Croatian Inventor Says He is Building the World’s Fastest Car.
