Move a magnet across a coil of wire and you will generate a bit of electricity. That process is amplified by orders of magnitude when electric cars drive past metal objects, so that is why the Rimac C_Two has completed electromagnetic testing.
Thankfully humans are blind to most of the electromagnetic spectrum. If we weren’t, our modern lives would be downright scary attempting to navigate all the energy around us. Every generator or electric motor makes noise that could interfere with communications, safety equipment, and even pacemakers depending on the strength of the field.
The team locked a production-ready car inside what is essentially a giant microwave. Blasting it with pulses from 20 MHz to 20 GHz, items like the climate control, audio system, and the complex power distribution network were proven to be resilient. When you consider the Rimac C_Two uses four motors at 720 volts, this is the equivalent of thousands of hours of reliability in real-world settings. If you didn’t want a new Rimac, now you can justify needing one to your significant other. As soon as deliveries begin you will see them here, so stay with us for all your Rimac news.
