The Rimac Nevera will be a monster

What else? Well, the Nevera uses a brand new 120kWh battery, which gives the car a WLTP range of 340 miles. Once that range is exhausted, it can be billed from 0-80% in as little as 19 minutes at full capacity.

This battery is integrated and structural, in Nevera’s record monocoque structure. Integrating the roof and the subframe, it is the largest carbon fiber part currently manufactured in the automotive industry. Even so, it weighs less than 200 kg but still has a torsional stiffness of 70,000Nm / degree. This means the Nevera has the stiffest structure of any car ever made.

Visually, the Nevera looks very little different from the C_Two concept of 2018. That said, Rimac made a number of improvements to the way the car handles airflow and cooling, on the way from preparation to production. Overall aero efficiency is up 34% compared to early prototypes, while brake and powertrain cooling efficiency is up 30% at low speed and 7% at high speed. Gone are the concept’s sand dollar-looking wheel covers as well, in favor of more conventional forged alloys which themselves are designed with brake cooling and air handling in mind.
