2021 Rimac Nevera electric hypercar revealed with sub-2.0 second acceleration

The 2021 Rimac Nevera electric hypercar – the production version of the Croatian manufacturer’s 2018 C_Two concept – has been officially revealed, with near-mythical power and acceleration figures. Drive comes from four individual electric motors – one paired to each wheel – and these deliver a combined 1427kW/2360Nm to the road, allowing the 0-100km/h sprint to be conquered in a record-shattering 1.97 seconds (claimed) on the way to a top speed of 412km/h.
