The Rimac Nevera is an e-car of the extreme. The model has not only broken numerous world records (including for the production car with the shortest acceleration time in the world), but is also extremely fast when it comes to charging. With up to 500 kW, the vehicle’s charging power is even higher than the 350 kW that Ionity offers at its fast chargers.
The battery of the Nevera consists of lithium-ion cells with nickel-manganese cell chemistry. This made it possible to achieve an energy content of 120 kWh to give the hyper sports car a range of up to 490 kilometres according to WLTP despite its power. At an Ionity charging point (i.e. with 350 kW at peak), the Nevera should be able to charge from zero to 80 per cent in 25 minutes.
“When people think of Rimac, they think of the record-breaking performance that the Nevera delivers, as well as the groundbreaking technologies at the heart of the company,” said Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of Rimac Group. “Yet, the Nevera was primarily developed as a hyper GT (Gran Turismo), rather than a track-focused car – it is a user-friendly hypercar. The collaboration with IONITY allows us to take this experience to the next level.”
Ionity currently operates over 500 sites in 24 countries. Another will be added soon: As part of the collaboration, Ionity will also operate an HPC charging park on the Rimac campus near Zagreb, Croatia. Once completed, six Ionity pillars will be available for public use there around the clock.
“Ionity has set the standards in ultra-fast charging and a seamless user experience across Europe,” commented CEO Michael Hajesch. “The partnership with Rimac perfectly reflects our endeavour for performance, reliability, and sustainability. It is based on common values and the pioneering work we do in our respective fields to enable and advance electric mobility.”
