Rimac announced the next evolution and production version of its Concept_Two electric hypercar, Nevera.
Concept_Two has been in development for years and Rimac has recently indicated that it will go into production soon.
In that sense, the Croatian manufacturer points out that in Nevera there will now be a new automobile version ready for production:
“The Nevera is the production-ready iteration of the Rimac C_Two concept car, which was revealed at the International Geneva Motor Show in 2018. Since then, Rimac’s engineers have refined their new flagship on every level during an extensive development program, in the pursuit of the ultimate electric hypercar driving experience.”
Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili, commented on the announcement saying that the Nevera is the car he had in mind ten years ago and that it will redefine the norm for performance cars.
“When we first revealed the C_Two, we set our targets extremely high. There was nothing else that could even come close to matching the car’s cutting-edge electric powertrain and extreme performance. But for us, that was only the starting point,” he added.

According to specifications published by Rimac last year, the “Concept_Two” will accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 1.85 seconds.
The rear engines are equipped with a two-speed gearbox, while the front engines are equipped with the more traditional single-speed gearbox for electric vehicles.
Those four motors run on 120 kWh of power capacity found in two new battery packs capable of fast charging with CCS Combo.
For the vehicle Rimac decided to opt for lithium / manganese / nickel chemistry in 21,700 cylindrical cells, such as those of the Tesla Model 3.
The company also claims Nevera will be able to go 0-100 mph in 4.3 seconds and a quarter mile in just 9.1 seconds, as well as a top speed of 258 mph.
A company executive last said that the C_Two will cost more than $ 1 million, and they plan to limit production to 100 units.
Rimac has confirmed most of those specs, but the electric hypercar will actually cost 2 million euros ($ 2.4 million) and they plan to make 150 units.
