The Croatian all-electric hypercar set 23 new performance records in a single day.
Rimac has set new world records with the all-electric Nevera hypercar. At a test track in Germany, the Croatian hypercar set 23 acceleration and braking records on the same day. These new speed records even bettered the ones set by Autocar India with the Pininfarina Battista back in February.

The all-electric Nevera achieved the 0-100kph sprint in just 1.81sec, 0.05sec faster than the one set by the Pininfarina Battista (1.86sec). The Nevera also did the 0-400kph and back-to-0 run in 29.93 seconds, breaking the 2019 record set by the Koenigsegg Regera, which did it in just over 31 seconds.

Rimac Nevera EV acceleration records
The Rimac Nevera’s timings were documented by two independent verifiers, Dewesoft and RaceLogic, with the carmaker using the lower times as the record-beating numbers. The team did multiple runs and set an abundance of new records, including a standing quarter mile time.

Rimac Nevera EV breaks Pininfarina Battista records
The Pininfarina Battista previously held some of the records broken by the Nevera, and some of these were set by the Autocar India team earlier this year. Rimac has also been supplying Automobili Pininfarina with battery and powertrain technology for the Battista.

Rimac Nevera EV price, powertrain, battery and range
The Rimac Nevera costs €2 million (Rs 17.84 crore) and uses four motors, one for each wheel, to provide the electric hypercar with 1,914hp and 2,369Nm of torque. The Nevera comes with a 120kWh battery pack, which gives it a WLTP-rated range of 490km. An onboard Nvidia supercomputer calculates the torque sent to each wheel about 100 times a second.
