A partnership between Rimac and charging provider Ionity means owners of the fastest accelerating car in the world can access ultra-rapid charging points.
The agreement will see Rimac drivers able to use the Ionity charging network throughout 24 different European countries, including the UK.
Rapid car, rapid charging
The Rimac Nevera uses four electric motors that are powered by a 120kWh lithium-manganese battery pack. When fully charged, the Croatian EV has an official range of up to 300 miles.
With a combined output of 1,914hp, the Rimac can accelerate from 0-62mph in less than two seconds. In 2021, it set a new road-car world record by completing a standing quarter-mile in just 8.852 seconds.
Despite the Nevera’s massive performance, Rimac founder Mate Rimac points out it was originally conceived as a “a hyper GT, rather than a track-focused car”.
As such, the Nevera is capable of using 500kW charging architecture. When connected to a 350kW Ionity charger, replenishing its battery pack from zero to 80 percent takes only 25 minutes.
A carbon-neutral campus
Helpfully, the partnership between Rimac and Ionity will benefit more than just the 150 folk who spend £2.4 million on a Nevera.
Ionity will also install a six-charger hub as part of the new Rimac Campus, which is being constructed near Zagreb in Croatia. This will offer high-speed EV charging for visitors to the Rimac site, along with the general public.
Set to cover more than 70,000 square metres, the Rimac Campus is designed to be carbon-neutral, and to accommodate some 2,500 employees. Hypercar fans will be able to access a Rimac retail store, restaurant and event spaces, too.
