Rimac Automobili reportedly plans to build a EUR200m (US$238.3m) campus near Zagreb in its native Croatia, with space for 2,500 employees, to support long-term growth.
The campus, on 200,000 sq m of land with 100,000 sq m of buildings, will include a test track and accommodation for visitors and new employees, Rimac said in a statement cited by SeeNews.com.
The complex will also house a museum, rooftop garden, games room, gym, training centre, restaurant and kindergarten.
“The campus is our springboard to the growth plans we have over the next decade and beyond, strengthening us as niche hypercar maker, a leading Tier 1 supplier of electric performance technology to the world’s largest automotive manufacturers and an early mover in the worlds of autonomy and mobility,” Rimac founder and CEO Mate Rimac was quoted as saying.
The construction start is scheduled later this year with completion expected in 2023. The campus will be located near Rimac’s current headquarters in Sveta Nedelja.
The new complex will become an international R&D and production base and enable the automaker to progress from prototype and smaller volume projects to high volume production of electric drivetrain and battery systems for global car company customers, the company said.
