Already holder of the record for accelerating over 400 meters in 8.5 seconds, the Rimac Nevera supercar has just won the title of the fastest production electric car in the world by reaching 412 km/h.
To establish this record, Rimac went to the test circuit of Papenburg in Germany which has two straight lines of 4 km conducive to this type of performance. The Nevera is equipped with four electric motors (2 times 250 kW at the front and 2 times 450 kW at the rear) with independent converters and gearboxes and controlled torque vectoring.
It develops 1,914 horsepower for 2,360 Nm of torque. It only takes 1.97 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h. Its monocoque chassis is made of carbon, as are the roof and most of the structural elements. On the scale, the Nevera displays 2.1 tons.
A real electric missile with all-wheel drive and whose 120 kWh lithium-manganese nickel battery contains 6,960 cells and can offer up to 550 km of autonomy.
This electric supercar has been designed for the circuit, with an astonishing virtual coaching device. The Rimac Driving Coach uses the 12 ultrasonic sensors, 13 cameras and 6 radars on board the Nevera to analyze driving and offer visual and audio advice to improve trajectory, apexes, braking and acceleration. A superb adult toy that costs a whopping two million euros.
