In 2018, Croatian Hypercar manufacturer Rimac Automobili showcased the Rimac C_Two Concept at the International Geneva Motor Show. The electric technology company now unveils the production version of the C_Two electric hypercar. In the production-spec, Rimac has named the C_Two concept – ‘Nevera.’
Locally, Nevera means an unexpected and mighty storm that races across the open Mediterranean sea off the Croatian coast. A Nevera is charged by lightning and is quick and extremely powerful. The name means the force of nature, which describes all the features on the production C_Two. The brand also boasts that the Rimac Nevera is not just a fast, powerful and aggressive hypercar. But also a comfortable grand tourer, and just like a storm, the Nevera is adept in transforming its character instantly. In the case of the Rimac Nevera, the character change is just a rotary knob away.
Rimac Nevera Powertrain
Powering the Rimac Nevera are four bespoke surface-mounted permanent magnet electric motors. The motors develop 1,914 Hp of power and 2,360 Nm of torque. This output is almost three times the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) supercar. The Nevera comes with a single-speed gearbox and can summon the maximum amount of torque on demand. The brand also boasts that the electric motors are 97% efficient and completely maintenance-free.
The Rimac Nevera features a unique H-shaped, liquid-cooled, 120kWh, 6960-cell battery designed by Rimac. The Lithium/Manganese/Nickel battery is capable of producing 1.4MW of power. Rimac has designed the battery to integrate with the car’s core, adding 37 per cent structural stiffness to the carbon fibre monocoque. The battery is designed to help create a low centre of gravity and a 48:52 front/rear weight distribution that contributes to the superior handling of the Rimac Nevera.
The Rimac Nevera, with the quad electric motors and proprietary battery technology, can sprint from 0-60mph (0-96 km/h) in Just 1.85 seconds. The hypercar can accelerate from 0-100mph (0-161 km/h) in just 4.3 seconds. The Nevera can achieve 186 mph (300 km/h) in 9.3 seconds and accelerates all the way to a top speed of 258 mph (412 km/h). Rimac also claims that the Nevera can sprint a quarter-mile (400m) in just 8.6 seconds, opening new dimensions in the Hypercar industry.
The Rimac Nevera is also a comfortable grand touring car and comes with creature comfort features. The Nevera features a dual-cockpit design with high-definition TFT screens and space for two occupants. The hypercar comes with digital screens in place of toggles and switches apart from the essential tactile controls. The Nevera will also come with the world’s first AI (Artificial Intelligence) Driver Coach developed by Rimac Automobili. The Driver Coach uses twelve ultrasonic sensors, thirteen cameras, six radars and helps extract the full performance of the hypercar at the race track.
