Rimac Nevera is officially the world’s fastest-production EV

The electric hypercar is capable of accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h in just 1.95 sec.

The Rimac Nevera has claimed the title of the ‘World’s fastest production EV’ after reaching a top speed of 412 km/h.

The Nevera was driven by Rimac’s chief test & development driver, Miro Zrncevic. The record attempt took place at the Automotive Testing Papenburg track in Germany, which has two 4 km straights.

In addition to becoming the fastest EV production car, the Nevera also holds the title of being the fastest accelerating car over a quarter mile, which was completed in 8.582 seconds. The electric hypercar is capable of accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h in just 1.95 sec, thanks to its four electric motors, which produce a combined total of 1,914 BHP. While the Nevera has clocked 412 km/h, the cars delivered to customers come with an electronically-limited top speed of 352 km/h.

The world’s fastest production car though continues to be the 1,360 BHP Koenigsegg Agera RS, which reached 447.18 km/h back in 2017. The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ reached 490.84 km/h in 2019, but the run was recorded only one way and hence wasn’t officially considered. Similarly, in 2020, the 508.73 km/h run of the SSC Tuatara was also not considered as it wasn’t homologated for road use.
