With it's series introduction in 2013, Croatian newcomers Rimac claimed the 1088bhp Concept One as the world's first electric supercar.
Advanced construction features an aluminium enhanced chassis, state of the art carbon fibre bodywork and amazing high-tech driver display interface that can even send telemetry and location data to your mobile. Torque vectoring can deliver instant thrust to any wheel by using four independent electric motors. 0-60mph takes just 2.5 seconds, while top speed is a hefty 220mph. Braking is also match for any supercar with vented ceramic disks with 6-piston callipers bring the Rimac to a halt from 60mph in just over 30 metres. Maximum range is a reasonable 300 miles.
Only a handful of these amazing $1 million automobiles have been sold, but that's the price you pay for all this performance with the benefit of zero emissions and miniscule fuel costs. As of 2015, rivals have now appeared in the form of Tesla's P85D and the Toroidion 1MW. Hopefully this will have the benefit of pushing prices down.
