Rimac isn’t any stranger to ultra-quick EVs, however its newest mannequin is on a distinct stage completely. The Rimac Nevera just lately set 23 new efficiency information, together with a brand new 0-400-0 kilometers-per-hour report and plenty of extra — all on a single day.
Rimac took the Nevera to a German check monitor, the place it took simply 1.81 seconds to succeed in 100 kmh (62 mph) and ran the quarter mile in 8.25 seconds. The standing mile flew by in 20.59 seconds, and Rimac set a number of different staggering information for acceleration between velocity markers, comparable to 1.74 seconds for 0-60 mph and three.21 seconds for 0-100 mph.
One of many extra spectacular numbers put up by the automobile was its 0-400-0 km/h (0-249-0 mph) time of 29.93 seconds. The evaluation assessments the automobile’s acceleration, aerodynamics, high velocity, and braking, and Rimac stated the Nevera did it greater than a second quicker than the earlier report holder. A Koenigsegg Regera ran the check in 31.49 seconds in 2019.
Rimac outfitted the automobile with street-legal Michelin Cup 2 R tires and ran the assessments on a non-prepped floor. Testing occurred on the Automotive Testing Papenburg facility, and Dewesoft and RaceLogic verified the information. Velocity information generally run into hassle when doubters query the validity of testing, so having two unbiased testers on website is comprehensible.
Whereas spectacular, the information appear to be a requirement for a $2 million-plus electrical hypercar. Rimac started manufacturing on the automobile in late 2022, and the 1,914-horsepower electrical powertrain makes use of 4 electrical motors to generate its prodigious output. Surprisingly, the battery can assist far more horsepower, however the automobile’s well-heeled patrons should make do with “simply” 1,914 horses. Rimac claims a 258-mph high velocity for the automobile, and the EPA estimates a 205-mile cruising vary, although utilizing various horsepower at a time will doubtless shorten that distance by fairly a bit.
