Rimac Nevera , Pushing the Boundaries of Electric Hypercars


It was 10 years ago that Rimac Automobili embarked on an “impossible journey”, one that in 2021 reached its boldly ambitious target. Launched last year, the Nevera is the production version of the C_Two – an all-electric, 1914hp, 258mph (415 km/h), €2 million hypercar.

This iteration of the Rimac C_Two concept car was initially revealed at the 2018 International Geneva Motor Show. and since then Rimac’s engineers have refined the new flagship model on every level during an extensive development program, “in the pursuit of the ultimate electric hypercar driving experience”.

Most of the Nevera’s key components were developed in-house at Rimac’s headquarters in Croatia, and all systems have been improved and enhanced since the initial prototypes.

“This is it,” explains Rimac Automobili founder and CEO Mate Rimac. “This is the car I had in mind when I embarked on the ‘impossible’ journey 10 years ago. 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-around 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.

“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 utilised the full potential of the electric powertrain.”

Rimac Automobili plans to manufacture only 150 examples of the Nevera, which is being designed, engineered and built in Croatia, and homologated for global use. Mate Rimac himself says he will personally test and sign off each of the Neveras before they are delivered to customers from the company’s current production site on the outskirts of Zagreb.

“Fittingly,” notes Rimac Automobili, “the Nevera bears a proud Croatian name and one that truly reflects the prodigious performance the car can unleash in the blink of an eye. The name given by the locals to a quick, unexpected and mighty Mediterranean storm that races across the open sea off Croatia, a nevera is extremely powerful and charged by lightning.

“Appearing with exceptional speed and potency, Rimac’s next-generation hypercar shares the Nevera’s name and looks set to leave a similarly disruptive effect on the global hypercar market. And, like the force of nature it is named after, it is just as adept at transforming its character in an instant – from assured and comfortable grand tourer to ultra-focused performance machine.”

Rimac has developed “the world’s first AI (Artificial Intelligence) Driver Coach” to enable drivers of all abilities to extract maximum performance from the Nevera and help them further develop their track driving skills.

Adding a new immersive dimension to the driving experience, Nevera’s Driver Coach evaluates performance and provides guidance to optimise and enhance the driver’s on-track performance, by accessing 12 ultrasonic sensors, 13 cameras, six radars and the latest NVIDIA Pegasus operating system. The system overlays selected race circuits in real-time, offering clear and precise audio and visual guidance.

As part of the customer journey, each Nevera owner will also be invited to Croatia to design his or her car “to their exacting requirements”.
