Rimac C_Two: EV hypercar enters production as 1888bhp Nevera

With dual focus on pace and refinement, Nevera gets 1.85sec 0-62mph time and 340-mile range

Croatian electric hypercar manufacturer Rimac is taking its radical C_Two concept into production with a raft of improvements and a new name: Nevera.

The culmination of three years of development following the C_Two concept's unveiling in March 2018, the €2 million (£1.72m) Lotus Evija rival has been renamed in tribute to the strong and sudden storms that occur on the Croatian coastline.

Rimac claims its engineers have "refined their new flagship on every level", using mostly bespoke, in-house-developed components in pursuit of the "ambitious performance targets" it outlined in 2018.

In keeping with that aspiration, the concept's powertrain has been largely carried over into production. The Nevera still features a high-output motor at each corner, giving it a combined 1888bhp and 1741lb ft (an increase of 45lb ft), which, Rimac reckons, is a threefold increase on the output of a conventional combustion-engined supercar. Rimac highlights that the Nevera is 2.5sec quicker to 186mph than was initially planned, needing just 9.3sec.

Claimed to be capable of accelerating from rest to 62mph in just 1.85sec and covering a quarter mile in just 8.6sec, the Nevera will be the fastest-accelerating production car yet built and its 258mph top speed puts it roughly on a par with the W16-powered Bugatti Chiron.

Rimac Nevera Is Production Official With 1,888 Hp (1,408 KW)

The electric hypercar from Rimac previously known as the C_Two concept is going into production and will now be known as the Rimac Nevera.

Since the debut in 2018, the electric hypercar has been in development and been given a name in tribute to the strong and sudden storms that occur on the Croatian coastline.

The Croatian manufacturer claims that the engineers have “refined their new flagship on every level”, using mostly bespoke, in-house-developed components in pursuit of the “ambitious performance targets” it outlined in 2018.

The powertrain in the concept mostly remains the same with all four motors combining to deliver 1,888 hp (1,408 kW) and 2,360 Nm (1,741 lb-ft) of torque. This grunt means it reaches 300 km/h (186 mph) 2.5 seconds faster than initially claimed which means it achieves this in just 9.3 seconds.

Claimed to be capable of accelerating from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 1.85s and covering a quarter-mile in just 8.6s, the Nevera will be the fastest-accelerating production car yet built and its 258 mph (415 km/h) top speed puts it roughly on a par with the Bugatti Chiron.

Power is delivered thanks to an H-shaped 120 kWh bespoke battery, which is claimed to produce up to 1.4MW of power and gives a WLTP range of 340 miles (547 km). This battery pack also forms a structural element of the car’s monocoque chassis, increasing stiffness. According to Rimac, the Nevera’s central monocoque is the largest single-piece carbon fibre structure used across the entire automotive industry.

Rimac Nevera

Hypercar manufacturer and electric technology specialist, Rimac Automobili, unveiled the production version of the C_Two, now becoming the Nevera, an all-electric, 1914hp, 258mph, €2m hypercar designed and engineered to unleash an unprecedented level of performance.

The Rimac Nevera is the production-ready iteration of the Rimac C_Two concept car, which was revealed at the International Geneva Motor Show in 2018. Since then, Rimac's engineers have refined their new flagship on every level during an extensive development program, in the pursuit of the ultimate electric hypercar driving experience. With the majority of key components of the Nevera developed in-house at Rimac's HQ in Croatia, all systems have been improved and enhanced since the initial prototypes to deliver on the ambitious performance targets set for at the beginning of the project in 2018.

"This is it. This is the car I had in mind when I embarked on the 'impossible' journey ten years ago. All our hard work has resulted in the 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-arround package. When we first revealed the C_Two, we set our targets extremely high. There was nothing else that could even come close to matching the car's cutting-edge electric powertrain and extreme performance. But for us, that was only the starting point," explains Mate Rimac, Founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili. "Everyone at Rimac is driven by curiosity and a desire to push things to the absolute limit. With its combination of everyday use and 1914hp performance, the Nevera proves what is possible when there are no restraints placed on technology, development, or ambition. We have now unveiled a car that pushes the hypercar market to a higher level, we have utilized the full potential of the electric powertrain today, proving what we've always been saying - that electric hypercar, in the form of the Nevera, is beyond exciting, and that is as thrilling on the track, as it is cosseting crossing continents. We will be making just 150 examples of the Nevera, every single unit crafted in Croatia from passion and admiration for cars."

Electric Rimac Nevera Revealed with 1 408 kW

Rimac has revealed its new electric hypercar, the Nevera, which boasts huge outputs!

Supercar manufacturer, Rimac Automobili, has revealed the production version of its C_Two concept car which was shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

It’s called the Nevera, named after a Mediterranean storm, and only 150 examples will be built for customers with a price tag of approximately R33.7 million.

What do you get for your money, you ask? How does 1 408 kW and 2 360 Nm grab you?

Those astonishing outputs are developed by 4, yes 4, electric motors and each wheel is connected to a pair of single-speed gearboxes.

A 120 kWh battery claims an electric range of up to 550 km (WLTP) and takes 22 minutes to charge from zero to 80% using a 500 kW fast charger. The battery itself was developed by Rimac and the Nevera weighs in at 2 150 kg with a 48/52 weight distribution.

The Nevera features a monocoque construction which includes a bonded carbon roof, rear carbon subframe and integrated structural battery pack. The monocoque weighs less than 200kg and incorporates 2 200 carbon fibre plys and 222 aluminum inserts to ensure maximum strength and Rimac says this is the “most rigid structure of any car ever made”.

1 408 kW Rimac Nevera flattens quarter mile in 8,6 sec!

Croatian electric car specialist Rimac has turned the hypercar world on its head with its battery-powered Nevera, which is a production version of the Rimac C-Two concept that was revealed three years back.

Rimac will be producing just 150 examples of this 1 408 kW battery-powered beast, with prices starting at $2,4 million, which equated to around R33 million at the time of writing.

That insane power output, and its equally impressive 2 360 Nm maximum torque figure, is enabled by four surface-mounted permanent magnet motors that drive each wheel individually.

Four bespoke surface-mounted permanent magnet motors drive the Nevera’s four wheels individually, while the front and rear wheels are each connected to a pair of single-speed gearboxes.

The performance figures are even more astounding, with Rimac claiming a 0-96 km/h time of 1,85 seconds and 0-160 km/h sprint time of 4,3 seconds as well as a record-breaking 8,6 second quarter mile and a top speed of 412 km/h, assuming you ever find a road safe enough to do that on.

Some international media have been lucky enough to get their hands on the Nevera, and we particularly enjoyed CarWow’s drag race video, where the hypercar made absolute mincemeat of the Ferrari SF90.
