The 1914-HP Rimac Nevera Tackles the Tundra

The 1914-HP Rimac Nevera Tackles the Tundra

Category :

The 1914-hp Rimac Nevera traveled to Pirelli’s Sottozero testing facility in Sweden for cold-weather validation and to test its suggested winter tires.The Rimac Nevera can sprint to 62 mph from a standstill in less than two seconds.The Rimac Nevera will set customers back over $2 million. The last time we saw the Rimac Nevera, it was thrown violently at a pole to perform some crash tests. While crash tests are probably the most important piece of any car’s validation procedure, the second in line might be cold-weather validation—especially if you live somewhere, ahem, cold. And to that end, Rimac’s upcoming all-electric supercar spent time at Pirelli’s Sottozero Center in Sweden near the Arctic Circle.While it’s unlikely that many will take their multi-million dollar battery-electric supercar out into the frozen tundra, it is interesting to see how a car like this reacts to the cold weather. According to Rimac, during testing it wasn’t especially cold at a reported 5 degrees Fahrenheit, though it’s safe to bet that most of these will be in a climate-controlled garage when the temperature drops that low. Still, this Nevera nonetheless needs to pass the company’s winter validation testing in order to make its way to customers. More importantly, it’s fun to see how capable this Rimac is on snow and ice when equipped with the Rimac-suggested Pirelli P Zero Winter snow tires, which replace the factory-fit Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber. Unfortunately, Rimac doesn’t show how the cold weather has affected the Nevera’s battery range, but it does show the car’s limited-traction capabilities.The Rimac Nevera is well on its way to becoming a future icon of electric sports cars. With 1914 hp on tap, an advertised 0-62 mph under two seconds, and an apparent 258 mph top speed, the Rimac Nevera could become remembered like the legendary sports cars of yore. We’ll have to wait until these start to the roads en masse before that discussion can really take place.
