Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One At Buzet – On-Board 360 Video

12 months ago by Mark Kane 10

One of the fastest racing electric vehicles, the Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One (0 to 124 mph in 5.4 secs), that recently took second and third place among BEVs in the last two years of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, demonstrated its performance in Europe this Fall.

Because the four motor, all-wheel drive powertrain was developed by Rimac Automobili, the team participated in a home event at the Buzet Hill Climb Race (part of the European Hill Climb Championship) in Croatia in September.

Above we attached a 360 video from on-board the stunning Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One.

“Rimac Automobili’s test driver – Miroslav “Mrgud” Zrnčević was driving the Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One on the  Buzet Hill Climb Race. Mrgud was testing the car during its development in early 2015, but he never raced it. This was an opportunity for the Croatian public to see the car in action and for Mrgud to have some fun.  This is a 360° video so use your mouse or tilt your smartphone to look around.”

Quick spec:

  • 1.1 MW (1,475 HP) of system power
  • 0-100 Km/h (62 mph) in 2.2 seconds and just 5.4 to 200 km/h (124 mph) from standstill
  • 57 kWh battery

    Oh my gawd. I saw zero over-steer, and wonder if this was full-time 4-wheel torque vectoring at work? The only struggle for control was a straight line. Point. Shoot.

    Sad, but people won’t appreciate this speed until a familiar name is on it.

    Would love to take one of these to the local drsgstrip! Wonder what it would do?

    It’s kind of wild seeing the car do that on those two lane roads. I wounder what would happen if someone fell asleep at the wheel after getting out of a bar at 2.00AM in the morning.

    But I still think that cars should have a human in them at all times for liability.

      This car has a driver in it.

    An electric motor per wheel is the optimum for traction control. U dont have the clumsy differential which is the leftover from ICE technology.

    And 2 smaller motors with reduction gearbox should cost the same as a bigger motor with bigger gearbox. ECU is not a problem, u can take two separate ones, or design a dual ECU which can control 2 motors.

    I’m talking from the large series production point of view.

    PWM sounds a bit buzzy.

    Im glad to see Croatia jump significantly in the supercar/electric car world. Its definitely better than being remembered for the Yugo from the Yugoslavia era.
