Rimac Nevera hits 256 mph, turns into world’s quickest manufacturing EV
The Rimac Nevera reached a high velocity of 256 mph at a German check monitor, which the corporate claims is a report for manufacturing electrical automobiles.
Rimac chief check and growth driver Miro Zrnčević achieved that feat on the Automotive Testing Papenburg monitor in Papenburg, Germany, the corporate mentioned in a press launch. The oval monitor was chosen by Rimac for the top-speed run due to its pair of two.4-mile straights.
Rimac Nevera high velocity run
The primary problem was nailing the transitions from the monitor’s banked curves to maximise velocity onto the straightaways, in response to Rimac. Zrnčević exited the banking at 155 mph earlier than totally unleashing the complete 1,914 hp and 1,740 lb-ft of torque from the Nevera’s quad-motor powertrain.
The highest velocity was achieved on road-legal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R tires, with monitoring by a Michelin technician, Rimac famous. To protect these tires, buyer vehicles are restricted to 218 mph, however Rimac mentioned the limiter will probably be disengaged “in particular buyer occasions with the assist from the Rimac workforce and underneath managed situations” the place technicians can guarantee correct tire setup.
Rimac launched a video of the run full with a readout of the 412 kph (256 mph) the automotive achieved. Test it out under.
Rimac in 2021 additionally set a quarter-mile report for manufacturing vehicles with the Nevera. YouTuber Brooks Weisblat achieved an 8.58-second time and 167.51-mph high velocity at a California dragstrip. That was achieved after a number of runs in 98-degree temperatures, so situations had been lower than very best.
The Nevera is the manufacturing model of the C_Two first proven in 2018, and it has now practically matched the 258-mph high velocity Rimac quoted for the idea model. Manufacturing began in July, with the primary buyer automotive going to 2016 F1 champion Nico Rosberg. The Nevera can be cleared for U.S. gross sales, and is rated at 287 miles of vary on the EPA testing cycle.
