“Here comes the storm, Never.” Rimac, a Croatian car manufacturer-backed up by Porsche, has revealed an electric Hypercar, evolved from its C_Two concept and turned into a production vehicle after four years of work and research on the model.
The car broke the record of the fastest accelerating production car by completing a quarter-mile in 8.6 seconds, as claimed by the automakers and gets from zero to sixty miles per hour in an incredible 1.85 seconds with a top speed of 258 miles per hour.
Mate Rimac, founder and Chief Executive officer of Rimac, said, “This is it” he added, “This is the car I had in mind when I embarked on the impossible journey ten years ago.” The car is supposed to enter production soon to be available for the buyers priced at $2.44 million, simultaneously the makers have decided to sell a total of 150 units; speaking of a huge price tag on an extremely powerful electric hypercar, there are two other names that induce similar feelings and have been in the category before Nevera, famous by the name of Lotus Evija and Pininfarina Battista. The claims of Nevera about speed and acceleration seem unreal when compared with other fast cars like Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport that goes from zero to sixty in 2.3 seconds, and the Koenigsegg Gemera hybrid that is expected to do the same in 1.9 seconds.
The Nevera is powered by electric motors sitting on each side of the car using an H shaped battery placement design integrated with the largest carbon fibre single monocoque design in the industry, combining to produce a jaw-dropping 1914hp and 2300Nm (1740 pound-feet) of torque, resulting in the aforementioned top speed of 258mph.
The battery of 120kWh helps the Nevera produce a range of 340 miles, which is very astonishing compared to other electric cars. The car supports charging up to 500kWh, giving it an incredible charging speed from twenty to eighty per cent in just nineteen minutes.
The car not only gives power to the driver but also provides the means to control it by a new all-wheel torque vectoring system that acts as both a traction control system and electronic stability system. Rimac has also worked to develop a braking system that can dynamically adjust the balance of the braking force between regenerative brakes and friction brakes.
The Nevera features an extremely refined design meant to perfectly control the flow of power as expected by a hypercar. The front is equipped with a beautiful headlight design accompanied by several air vents under the headlight and one on the bonnet for optimised cooling of the power-producing system.
The side of the car elegantly displays the butterfly doors and an airflow system styled by the presence of the vents in the design of a cravat equipped with functional LED lights for showing battery power, among other things, on the required settings. Meanwhile, the back consists of a spoiler designed to control airflow, improving the downward force and lowering the drag for higher speed.
The car’s interior is composed of the newest tech, complete with thirteen cameras and an all-around radar system for improved functioning; it also has an infotainment touch screen for various controls. One of the most prominent features of the car is knobs in it performing various individual functions like adjusting drivetrain and drive mode for the driver’s convenience. The makers claim that the car has more space in its cockpit than any other car of this category to accommodate a person of any size and making entry and exit effortless. The car’s ergonomics are as good as the tech in it to make it comfortable, as claimed by the makers.
Nevera is a word of Croatian used for an unexpected storm seen on the Croatian coast of the Mediterranean sea. The car with its monstrous power and speed is expected to live up to the name.
