Rimac Nevera – electric supercar priced at 2.4 million USD


Nevera is a C_Two model that has been released but has some different upgrades, limited to 150 units with prices from $ 2.4 million.

Nevera is named after a Mediterranean storm, compared to the concept C_Two, Nevera has many changes in aerodynamics, bringing 34% more efficiency. Rimac changed the shape of the bonnet, columns and the design of the diffuser, splitter and radiator, to improve airflow and downforce.

Redesigned air intakes and cooling slots give the vehicle a 30% increase in cooling efficiency of both the brakes and powertrain at low speeds and a 7% increase at high speeds.

Most impressive is the bodywork, which brings a lot of aerodynamic elements that allow the Rimac Nevera to switch from “high traction” to “low drag”, providing the optimal aerodynamic configuration for all driving situations. When in the “low drag” state, the car reduces aerodynamic drag by 17.5% to create a drag coefficient of just 0.3. While in “high traction”, when stepping on the accelerator, the vehicle will increase the downforce to the road surface by no less than 326%.

The engine remains the same when announced as a concept in 2018, the car uses four separate electric motors for each wheel, producing a total capacity of 1,914 horsepower and 2,360 Nm of torque. Power is provided by a H-shaped, liquid-cooled 120 kWh Lithium/Manganese/Nicken battery block designed from the ground up by Rimac. Ability to charge 0-80% in 22 minutes using technology that supports 500 kW DC Combo fast charging. Travel distance is about 550 km according to WLTP standards.

The Croatian automaker claims Nevera is capable of accelerating from 0-96 km / h in just 1.85 seconds, 0-161 km / h in 4.3 seconds, 0-300 km / h in 9.3 seconds. Complete the 402 m distance in 8.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 412 km / h.

In order to be able to accelerate under 2 seconds, Nevera must calculate the amount of torque deployed to each wheel over 100 times/second to achieve the desired steering feel through the all-wheel torque measurement system. Rimac’s smart gear (R-AWTV). Stability, safety, efficiency and agility will meet all driving requirements.

Rimac says that the Nevera’s carbon monolithic shell is one of the most groundbreaking features, as it is designed to enclose the battery to create an “extremely strong structure” with a torsional stiffness of 70,000 Nm/degree . The battery pack alone adds 37% more rigidity to the carbon fiber monocoque frame, while the optimal position in the floorboards not only contributes to a low center of gravity, but also helps balance the weight with a ratio of 48/ 52 front and back. In addition, it also helps the car reduce weight at 2,150 kg.

The power and weight forced Rimac to install a Brembo ceramic brake disc with a diameter of 390 mm and 6-piston brake calipers. Nevera offers the highest regenerative braking system of any car ever produced. Regenerative braking dissipates kinetic energy through friction when the temperature of the battery reaches the thermal limit. If the active friction brake is overheated, the regenerative brake will automatically activate.

Rimac wanted Nevera to combine the qualities of a road car with the precision of a race-focused machine, which is why it worked continuously to calibrate the different driving modes to match. unify. A total of 7 driving modes, including Sport, Drift, Comfort, Range, Track and two custom modes allow the driver to combine different characteristics according to preferences.

Nevera will offer the world’s first AI Driver Coach, which will evaluate performance and provide guidance to help drivers improve their driving. The Rimac driving coach will use 12 ultrasonic sensors, 13 cameras, 6 radars and NVDIA’s Pegasus operating system to cover the selected road surface in real time, while providing visual and audio guidance Clear, precise bars to assist the driver in completing their mileage, brake and acceleration points are also recorded into the steering system. The system will be available in 2022 via remote update for already delivered cars.

Nevera’s cabin will have 3 high-definition screens including a multi-information instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, a central infotainment screen and a screen for the passenger seats. The control panel also features tactile aluminum rotary buttons and switches, combining an analog feel with digital technology. Rimac claims the Nevera provides comfortable space for two in race gear and accompanying luggage, as a point for the dual purpose of the electric vehicle.

Customers will be offered a wide range of material and trim options to create a truly unique version of Rimac Nevera. The company will also offer a variety of versions, including GT, Signature and Timeless.

“With its combination of everyday use and 1,914-horsepower performance, Nevera has demonstrated what can happen when there are no restrictions,” said Mate Rimac, founder and chief executive officer of Rimac Automobili. no matter what technology, development or ambition we have now taken the hypercar market trolley to the next level, we have used the full potential of the electric system today, proves what we’ve always said – that electric hypercar, in the form of the Nevera, is beyond fun, and it’s just as thrilling on the track, as it is straining across continents.”

The new Rimac Nevera will be produced in a run of 150 units, entirely handcrafted, with prices starting at $2.4 million.
