Rimac continues to focus on C_Two electric superruns, but there is bad news for those waiting in line to produce cars,media reported. The Croatian-based start-up said on Tuesday that consumers will eventually be unable to buy C_Two this year. It is clear that the new crown virus that is now sweeping the world has caused this delay.
As originally planned, the C_Two production will go into production this year and deliver it for the first time shortly thereafter. Now, RiMac says they will have to wait until next year to deliver the first cars. But the company added that consumers will still be able to see the final design of the C_Two this year and know its final name in the coming months.
Meanwhile, the Croatian company is still busy trialling and building prototypes. Despite the delay, C_Two now has a new production line at the plant, which will help cut assembly time by half. So far, the company has built four prototypes, but another 13 are needed to meet testing and certification requirements, and 10 more test vehicles are needed. The new assembly line will greatly speed up the production process.
As a follow-up to the Rimac Concept_One, C_Two promises a top speed of 258mph and a 1.85-second acceleration time of 1.85 km — a reminder that this is faster than Tesla’s 1.9-second sprint for the upcoming sports car. Four electric motors will bring 1914 horsepower to this super run. Rimac stressed that it was confident that the final mass production would meet those numbers.
