Then there were being the driving prototypes that we’ve formerly found on the road. There have been 3, utilised in a few distinctive services. Only two are even now close to at this time – with the automobiles obtaining very little in prevalent with the subsequent prototypes.
The 6 validation prototypes “took the bulk of the torture,” as Rimac has place it. They ended up crash-examined numerous moments, to the issue that two of them only arrived as a monocoque in the online video. The final crash test was completed in February for certification in the US and Europe.
One particular of the five preseries cars was also existing in the video, which was the popular Nevera cars tested by the media.
