Rimac’s Electric Empire Crashes into the Abyss: Goodbye Supercars, Hello Robotaxis



The Revolution is Coming: Rimac’s Verne Robotaxi Service to Redefine Mobility

Are you ready to kiss the car keys goodbye and hello to a robotaxi future? Mate Rimac’s revolutionary company, Verne, is poised to shake the status quo by bringing electric, self-driving taxis to Croatia’s capital city, Zagreb, in 2026. The timing couldn’t be better – as the world continues to struggle with unsustainable transportation and increasing air pollution.

For those unfamiliar with Rimac’s reputation, let me introduce you. With a garage start and a sole founder, Rimac has catapulted itself into the elite club of performance car manufacturers. Its Nevera hypercar shattered records and Bugatti acquisition cemented its status as a go-to innovation partner. Today, the company leverages EU funds and investments from Hyundai and Kia to power its robotaxi service.

Dubbed Project 3 Mobility, the brainchild of Rimac and designer Marko Pejković, Verne is a 256mph-capable electric beast, equipped with the latest in autonomous tech from Mobileye. Gone are traditional controls like wheels and pedals – Verne’s sleek design boasts an immersive, panoramic 43-inch touchscreen display for entertainment, climate control, and even ambient scent management!

But why 2-seat only, you ask? With 9 out of 10 rides carried by 1 or 2 people, the 2-seat capacity makes way for a spacious, luxurious interior experience that rivals business class flights.

Accessible via mobile app, riders will appreciate the convenience and customization options (temperature, lighting, and even scent), while fleets are optimized by the connected Motherships and factory-located assembly line in Croatia. When the service takes off (pun intended), the focus will shift to removing the need for individual cars and the space constraints they bring, promising a future with fewer congested streets and clearer skies.

Europe may be slow to follow, but as Rimac confidently expands its network to 11 cities in the EU, UK, and the Middle East, one wonders what takes so long – considering Alphabet’s Waymo is thriving in the US and Baidu’s vast reach in China. We can’t wait to witness the evolution.

Will this innovative disruptor revolutionize urban transportation and transform lives? Can the people and institutions of Croatia reap the rewards of being among the first to ride this technological revolution? Only time will tell. For now, buckle up (or sit back in luxury, depending on your Verne ride) – a new world is waiting at the crossroads.
