I know that Rimac is not in the same category as Rivian but this is a fascinating video where their CEO Mate Rimac talks about their battery technology.

Some interesting notes:
  • Battery energy density hasn't really changed over the past 10 years, instead the cost has dropped.
  • Rimac doesn't believe there's much chance of a revolutionary battery change in the next few years
  • A lot of OEM's are coming to Rimac for their battery tech, like Ford is doing with Rivian.

I had previously seen this video. Rimac is impressive. Interesting video especially their preference in axial cooling of the battery cells is preferred over radial. Rivian does axial cooling. Thanks for posting it.

I wonder if Rivian's preference in axial cooling comes from Rimac or if it's just a coincidence.
