Hypercar successfully completes first round of crash-testing

26 September 2019

The Rimac C_Two is undergoing a massive program of crash-testing via simulations in a virtual world, components tests and experimental prototypes.

Global homologation of the Rimac C_Two is one of Rimac’s main objectives. The fully-fledged homologation process, without any shortcuts, is a huge task for a small-volume manufacturer as it mirrors the processes undertaken by much bigger brands. The process from the first concepts, to full prototypes, to cars on the road, is a three to four-year process.

Rimac begin by running simulations and developing the car in the virtual world. Next, it conducted material and component tests. After they were happy with the results, they started the vehicle testing program – starting with experimental prototypes, then testing validation prototypes, pre-production prototypes, and the final car – it's a nerve-wracking process for the entire team. To be sure that the car functioning is as intended, physical tests need to be in perfect correlation with the simulations.

Now that the first round of crash tests is successfully completed, Rimac can proceed to the next stage of development with full confidence. The next step in the development of the C_Two is to further improve the design together with perfecting the correlations of its virtual simulations.

In addition to the homologation, Rimac is performing thousands of tests to ensure the performance, durability, and reliability of all systems. This intensive program ensures that the hypercar is safe and road-legal worldwide, enabling Rimac to deliver cars to customers in every major global market.
