  1. In the high-end market Rimac is expected to release the C Two this year (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rimac_C_Two), and it should be top of the market in nearly all electric car specs. It’s $2 million each though with 150 production expected this year and I believe 800 next year (the company owner spoke about production in a recent talk in Croatia).
