Bugatti Rimac and Volkswagen Group Agreement
Mate Rimac, CEO of Bugatti Rimac, emphasizes the importance of the agreement. Rimac states that the USA is the strongest market for the Bugatti and Rimac brands.

In accordance with the agreement, Volkswagen Group will undertake and manage the distribution of Bugatti Rimac in the USA.
The new president of Bugatti America, Sascha Doering, will head this newly formed unit. The agreement comes at a time when Bugatti is transferring its import and distribution business in America to the Volkswagen Group.
Bugatti Rimac's Strong Portfolio
Founded in 2021, Bugatti Rimac has its main base in Croatia. 45 percent of this company belongs to Porsche and 24 percent belongs only to Rimac. Rimac has sold at least three Nevera models in the US market. In the future, a special track version of Nevera will be worked on. This version is expected to be for track use only.
While Bugatti continues its production activities in France, it continues to work on a new model. This model is planned to be introduced in 2024 and start deliveries in 2025. The Bugatti Rimac collaboration could increase the French brand's capacity to produce much faster and more powerful hypercars. The model to be introduced is expected to be a hybrid hypercar.
