Rimac Nevera: The 2022 Rimac Nevera electric hypercar is fast, but we’re faster! With a top speed of 258 mph this little Croatian company has plans for worldwide domination. So why shouldn’t our first Rimac Drive be as quick? This $2.4 million baby was waiting for us when we arrived at the factory in Zagreb, Croatia. All we needed to do was take it for a spin and bring it back within an hour – easy right?
The Rimac Nevera is a futuristic electric vehicle with modern features. It has an extravagant speed of up to 258 mph and can go from 0-60 in just 1.85 seconds! The sleek red exterior color hides its unconventional nature, but its technology does not stop there!
Alongside this awe-inspiring speedy character, the Nevera also delivers some cool key functions such as intelligent air conditioning or even an animated display system for certain settings – all while keeping you protected with tons of safety features inside such as high strength steel frames or carbon fibre weave structures. Of course, no vehicle would be complete without its engine – which can reach up to 1000 HP!
Rimac Nevera Price/How Much Does Nevera Cost?
It’s no secret that electric cars come with a huge price tag. But at least you know it’ll last longer, right? That’s what Rima Rac Company believes too; after all, it has been building them for over ten years now. This particular model, dubbed Nevera, starts at only $70,000 USD and gets two hundred miles per charge!
With four of its batteries below the lightweight carbon fiber frame and capable of producing 1,914 horsepower and 1,741 lb-ft torque – this little baby is ready to take on even the toughest terrain! It may not come from somewhere where they’ve been doing this forever (remember when Croatia was still Yugolsavia?) but we think these guys just might have found something worth looking into.
Top Specifications of Rimac Nevera:
This is the future of mid-engine cars. A light carbon fiber monocoque chassis and body combined with an electric drivetrain offer a race car feel without sacrificing comfort. The Nevera’s 120 kWh battery pack only needs 5 hours to charge fully if you have access to a 220V outlet; however, it can also be charged wirelessly via induction or even via solar panels (sold separately). This car offers next level luxury amenities such as electronically adjustable suspension(with a convenient nose-lift feature) and active aero finish off the package.

Test Drive Review:
This company has great skills. Rimac Engineering licensed it’s technological concepts to other big car makers such as Koenigsegg and Aston Martin, but it also just got ahold of Bugatti when Volkswagen released it. We finally had a chance to test out the Nevera. There was something surprisingly normal about this powerful vehicle (compared to other sports cars) that wasn’t too loud when we were merging onto the I-10 highway; even though there wasn’t anything finalized about how much noise, vibration, and harshness there would be.
For what feels like a hypercar, its amazing how much visibility the car has. With everything shrinking to fit around me – I feel as if im right at home in this spot. Getting more comfortable every minute and without even realizing it – The Nevera gave me the ability to do anything and go anywhere thanks to its quick acceleration, incredible control and never ending torque.
It takes us fifteen minutes to climb the mountain only to come back down, making us feel tingly all over. The car barely loses traction when driving over bumps and debris while I can feel every single piece of cobblestone through my seat. But this is why they call it a test drive – to test if this is what you’re looking for or not. After going up and then coming back down from the mountain, the car feels like it’ll last forever when it finally arrives at its destination – proving that even though there are many cars on sale today, some still stand out above all others.
Expert Opinion on Rimac Nevera:
The Rimac Nevera is too good to pass up. The car was made with lots of technology that allows you do everything from cool down your champagne at the push of a button to drive 100 miles an hour without even touching the accelerator. With its futuristic features, it’s no wonder why this vehicle can’t keep off our radar for too long.
