Rimac Nevera: new EV hypercar named

Incredible 1,914hp, £1.9m hypercar revealed – now named Nevera after a Mediterranean storm that races across the Croatian coast

The Rimac Nevera is the production version of its C_Two EV concept car – and the all-electric hypercar is set to grab headlines thanks to an unprecedented level of performance.

Boasting a remarkable 1,914hp, the Nevera’s four electric motors accelerate it from 0-60mph in just 1.85 seconds, while a quarter-mile takes a mere 8.6 seconds.

It is capable of a 258mph top speed.

Yet the new Croatian hypercar is also capable of travelling 340 miles between charges, courtesy of a 120kWh battery – and, using super-fast electric car chargers, takes 19 minutes to charge from zero to 80%.

But, needless to say, it won’t be cheap: limited to just 150 cars, each costs from £1.9 million.

“This is it,” said founder and CEO Mate Rimac. “This is the car I had in mind when I embarked on the impossible journey 10 years ago.

“All our hard work has resulted in the Nevera – our record-breaking hypercar.

“This car was born to outperform, and to raise the bar, redefining the norm for performance cars. And not only in performance, but as an all-round package.”

Rimac has vowed to personally test and sign off each Nevera built.

Standard-setting acceleration is the Nevera’s forte. 0-100mph takes 4.3 seconds and it will accelerate from zero to 186mph in just 9.3 seconds – 2.5 seconds faster than Rimac’s initial targets.

The two-seat Rimac Nevera has a luxurious cabin that offers space both for passengers wearing full race gear, and all their luggage. It is “as much a capable GT as it is a performance hypercar”.

There are three TFT screens which can be configured both for track and on-road driving. Meanwhile, tactile billet aluminium rotary controls and switches “provide a resolutely analogue feel”.

The car has downloadable real-time telemetry and there’s even a supporting Rimac smartphone app, called M2M. This delivers real-time data to both Rimac (in anonymised form) as well as the owner.

The firm says the in-house app allows motorists to track live data such as location, charging speed and battery status, while also analysing driving performance, metrics and map previews.

It works on both Android and iOS.

19 global dealer will sell the Rimac Nevera, including HR Owen in the UK.
