Rimac Nevera Lands On US Soil At Monterey Car Week

In recent years, there have been countless new automakers revealing all-electric hypercars boasting insane performance numbers. Most of them, however, turn out to be complete vaporware. That's not the case with Rimac, whose battery-powered Nevera hypercar claims a 0-60 time of just 1.85 seconds, packing almost 2,000 horsepower. The Nevera will be making its US debut with two prototypes on display at The Quail on August 19th, shortly after the first production unit was delivered to Nico Rosberg, 2016 F1 World Champion.

The hypercar duo will be showcased at the Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, California. These Nevera models were built at Rimac's new production facility outside of Zagreb, Croatia. The automaker will be capable of producing 50 examples each year, though all of this year's build slots are sold out.

Rimac is currently making its first deliveries in Europe, with customers in the US, Middle East, and Asia receiving their units soon. This comes after five years of testing and development, with 18 pre-production prototypes. 11 of those examples were totaled in the process.

"We’ve been coming to Monterey Car Week for years, showcasing our first car – Concept_One – and then the gradual development of C_Two into its final production form as Nevera," said Rimac Group CEO Mate Rimac. "This year’s appearance at The Quail is undoubtedly our most significant yet; the clearest indication that the promises we have made in five years of development have all been fulfilled and exceeded; the world’s first all-electric hypercar – and the fastest accelerating production car – is now ready to be shipped to customers all over the world. It’s also the first year we see our Bugatti Rimac joint company showing why it’s the best hypercar company in the world."

After its Monterey Car Week debut, one of the Nevera examples will undergo a nationwide tour of the United States. Prospective buyers and fans across the country will have the opportunity to see the all-electric hypercar in person, until it returns to Europe at the year's end. Speaking of Europe, the second Nevera unit will return to its home continent for a series of events, including the Supercar Owners' Circle in Croatia next month.

Rimac has also announced its partnership with 13 of the most prestigious dealer groups in the US, handling both sales and maintenance for the Nevera. Exact locations haven't been disclosed.
