Rimac Nevera First Look: The C_Two Becomes a 1,914-HP, 258-MPH Electric Hypercar


Rimac Nevera First Look: The C_Two Becomes a 1,914-HP, 258-MPH Electric Hypercar

Rimac has been around for some time, but everything it’s built (so far) has a proof of concept. There were the electric C_One (C1) and C_Two (C2), successive hypercar concepts (the “C” in their names standing in for the word “concept”) previewing future salable efforts. Now, the C2 has finally evolved into a production car called Nevera, trading in its concept-related moniker for a name inspired by a type of Mediterranean storm that rapidly forms on the coast of Croatia, Rimac’s home country.

The Nevera, like the two concepts that came before it, is a super-EV that boasts massive performance and power claims. The headline figures are 1,914 hp, 1,741 lb-ft of torque, a 258 mph top speed, and a price tag of more than $2.4 million. The body is made of carbon fiber, as is the chassis and most of the interior. If a surface inside isn’t visible carbon, it’s clad in luscious leather. Is it an interior and some big numbers worthy of such a massive price tag? We can just let the Nevera’s buyers be the judge.

Rimac’s ridiculous power figure comes courtesy of a 120-kWh battery pack that feeds juice to four electric motors, one at each corner of the Nevera. Those motors, according to Rimac, will remain completely maintenance-free throughout their operating life. Thanks to all that electric grunt, Rimac says the Nevera will demolish the zero-to-60-mph sprint in 1.85 seconds (on a high friction surface like a drag strip). Should we ever test one, this would make it the quickest production car we’ve ever tested, electric or otherwise, though we don’t use a prepped surface, so expect a slightly rounder edge to the performance figures on more realistic roadways.
