Rimac is Croatia’s first and only automaker. Its 35-year-old founder, Mate Rimac, started tinkering with electric vehicles after he blew the engine in an old BMW he raced as a teen. After rebuilding it with an electric drivetrain – and winning some races – he founded Rimac Automobili in 2009, and today the company has released an electric supercar, the Nevera. CNBC’s John Rosevear gives the $2.1 million electric vehicle a test drive in the canyon roads above Malibu to find out if it lives up to the hype.
