What else? Well, the Nevera uses an all-new 120kWh battery, which gives the car a 340-mile WLTP range. Once that range is depleted, it can be charged from 0 to 80 per cent in as little as 19 minutes at maximum capacity.
That battery is integrated and structural, within the Nevera’s record-breaking monocoque structure. Incorporating the roof and subframe, it’s the largest single carbon-fibre piece currently being manufactured in the car industry. Even so, it weighs less than 200kg but still has a torsional stiffness of 70,000Nm/degree. That means the Nevera has the most rigid structure of any car ever made.
Visually, the Nevera seems to differ very little from the C_Two concept of 2018. That said, Rimac has made a number of improvements to the way the car manages airflow and cooling, on the way to production readiness. Overall aero efficiency is up 34 per cent over the early prototypes, while brake and powertrain cooling efficiency is up 30 per cent at low speeds and seven per cent at high speeds. Gone also are the sand dollar-looking wheel covers of the concept, in favour of more conventional forged alloys that themselves are designed with brake cooling and air management in mind.
