The Croatian brand of the powerful electric hypercar Nevera, also known – now – as the parent of Bugatti, has decided to expand the range of its activities beyond supercars, into more massive categories, announcing Project 3 Mobility.
According to the recommendations this lies in the development and production of a fully autonomous car, designed under the concept of manning fleets of mobility services which will present as a working prototype as early as this year with the prospect of being produced from 2026 on a large scale.
Although for the moment no further clarifications have been given in relation to the project, there is information that the robotic taxi will evolve with the contribution of KIA. Regarding Rimac’s intentions as noted by the head of the brand: “we want to change the way people live and experience their travel by offering an affordable, environmentally friendly means of public transportation.”
What is also clear is that Rimac will aim for its new four-wheeled creation to be able to move, fully autonomously, without the assistance of a driver, while the Croatian firm, in addition to the four-wheeler itself, is planning a full support plan with points charging stations as well as parking spaces, noting that it will be a car but of a “very different type”.
It is also worth noting that Project 3 will operate under the terms of an autonomous brand that will be added to Rimac’s portfolio, having a clearly separate corporate entity from Bugatti and Rimac.
