The Rimac Nevera is now the world’s fastest electric vehicle, and the car set a new speed record of 412 km/h or 258 mph.
The new world record for an electric car can be seen in the video below, this is a very impressive car.
Behind the wheel was Miro Zrnevich, Rimac’s Head of Testing and Development. His challenge was getting the perfect straight entry out of the curved sections of the track to give the car the best possible chance of hitting the V-MAX. When the car came out of banking, going about 250 kilometers per hour (155 mph), the Miro unleashed the full power of Rimac’s advanced four-engine powertrain and battery, pushing the Nevera into the 400-kph range.
It wasn’t until after Mero lifted the throttle, safely bringing the Nevera back to more normal speeds, that the news reached on the radio. 412 km per hour (258 mph) – exactly as it was simulated many years ago. Fast enough to make the Nevera the world record holder for fastest production EV car and also the fastest car ever recorded at the Papenburg test car. Top speed was measured using the Racelogic V-Box, a highly accurate GPS-based measuring device. A top speed of 412 kilometers per hour was a target set by the Rimac team when the car was first revealed as the C_Two at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018, and only now – after a collective development of 1.6 million hours – has it been verified.
