Rimac Nevera Supercar, worth $2.4 million, has set new groundbreaking records for EV cars, hitting 415 km/h (258 mph).
The Croatian hypercar was able to hit the top speed at the Automotive Testing Papenburn track in Germany.
The 415 km/h record for EVs is just 78 km/h slower than the top speed record for gas-powered cars, held by cars like the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport.
This is the second record the Rimac Nevera is holding. When it first launched, it became the world’s fastest-accelerating production car, hitting 60 mph from a standstill in under two seconds.
The chief tester of Rimac, Miro Zrnčevicć, piloted the car to the top speed record this week in Germany. And all of this was done in an unmodified version of the Nevera.
Miro Zrnčevicć had the car in aero-maximizing mode when he reached the 258mph record—a previously unheard-of speed for EVs.
He said, “I’ve driven Nevera since it first turned a wheel, and seeing the perfectly honed car today is a really emotional moment.
“The most important thing I have learned during the top-speed attempt is how composed and stable the car was—confirming that our aerodynamic and vehicle dynamics teams have done an amazing job.”
For customers, the Nevera is limited to a top speed of 219 mph, but Rimac says they’ll be able to push it to the full 258mph at special events.
About The $2.4 Million Rimac Nevera
The EV supercar is powered by four synchronous electric motors– one at each wheel – with a combined power output of 1,914 horsepower.
Its monstrous 1,741 lb-ft of torque can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.85 seconds and takes 9.3 seconds to reach 186 mph.
Thanks to the 120kWh, 6,960-cell battery pack, you can drive it up to 340 miles on a single charge.
While it doesn’t sound like a lot, that’s in line with the range you expect from equivalent petrol-powered hypercars.
With the Nevera, Rimac has set a new standard for the supercar/hypercar market.
And they’ve done it with their technology, building their hardware and software, which means everyone else will have to catch up.
