EV hypercar manufacturer Rimac Automobili unveiled the design for its new state-of-the-art home in Croatia, including on-site test track, accommodation, and museum. It pretty much is looking to be the Apple of the EV world.
That’s quite impressive for a company that 10 years ago only consisted of founder Mate Rimac working from his home garage. Today, the company employs over 1,000 team members and it’s one of the automotive industry’s rising stars, especially as the world transitions to an increasingly electric future.
Partnering with the likes of Hyundai-Kia and Porsche, Rimac is now looking to bring together all of its people and functions in one unique, spectacular place. The eye-catching complex will showcase the brand’s spirit and focus on attention to detail, with a lengthy wishlist to future proof its new home. The new complex will be its international R&D and production base and enable the company to ramp up from prototype and smaller volume projects to high-volume production of its high-performance electric drivetrain and battery systems for many global car companies.
The new site for Rimac Automobili, designed around the idea of providing the best possible working environment for an international workforce, is located only a couple of kilometers from Rimac’s current home and occupies a site of 200,000 m² while the built area will be 100,000m². It is expected to be completed by 2023. Considerable thought has gone into the new complex’s look and feel. Mate Rimac has personally been keen to ensure that his business’ new home embodies not just the brand’s character, but also that of its people. As such, the spaces have been refined to be friendly, open and warm, with more than a hint of fun. At the same time, befitting the company’s leading-edge technology status, it will be contemporary, light-filled and take inspiration from its natural surroundings.
