1914HP Rimac Nevera is the Quickest Production Car EVER!

During the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed I have filmed the Rimac Nevera on the hillclimb. The new 2022 Rimac Nevera electric hypercar is designed to be quick. The tiny Croatian automaker promises the Nevera will be both the quickest-accelerating car and the fastest electric car in the world, with a top speed of 258 mph. Built by hand in Sveta Nedelja, Croatia, the Nevera is an engineering marvel?especially when you consider Rimac is a 12-year-old automaker headed by a 30-something CEO and that it hails from a country that technically never built a car before. ("Technically" because Croatia was part of Yugoslavia, a country with a well-known though not storied automaking tradition.) Underneath the Nevera's carbon-fiber tub sit four house-built permanent-magnet electric motors. Combined, they produce a staggering 1,914 horsepower and 1,741 lb-ft of torque. Those motors are capable of instant torque vectoring, and if the driver so chooses, the Nevera can switch between front-wheel and rear-wheel drive with the twist of a knob. The motors are backed by a massive homebrewed 120-kWh battery, which will be the second-largest battery pack available on a production car once the Nevera goes on sale in December. Only American startup Rivian's battery pack is bigger, at 133 kWh for its "Large pack." Rimac says it expects about 340 miles of range on the generous European WLTP cycle. But driving it the way we did will likely result in something more like 150-200 miles. Rounding out the package are giant 15.3-inch six-piston carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes, an electronically adjustable suspension (with a very handy nose-lift function), and active aero. The Nevera's bodywork takes the traditional "mid-engine" hypercar form, except it features a 3.5-cubic foot trunk where the engine would be on most other cars accessed through the rear glass. Its styling is fairly conservative, but Rimac is also building the mechanically identical Pininfarina Battista alongside the Nevera for those looking to make more of a visual statement. There's definitely something to Rimac as an entity. Both Hyundai and Porsche own parts of the company, Rimac's engineering arm licenses its technology to Koenigsegg and Aston Martin, and it just bought Bugatti off of Volkswagen.
