The electric Croatian supercar is charging at dizzying speeds

It could be faster if you could handle the filling column.

The Croatian Mate Rimac his name is still less known around the world, but it’s worth noting because the young man of just 33 is putting more and more serious things on the table in the world of e-mobility.

Mate Rimac, who had already carved an electric car at the age of 19 in 2008 from his 1984 BMW in the video below, founded the company that developed Greyp Bikes electric bikes in the same year. If the company’s name sounds familiar, it could be because we wrote last November that Porsche had acquired a majority stake in Greyp, suggesting Mate Rimac did an excellent job.

The young man is not idle, as just a year after the launch of Greyp, he started his own car company in 2009: Rimac Cars It began operations in 2009, and in 2018, Porsche also entered the business, acquiring a 45 percent stake.

The first model of Rimac Automobili was produced in a limited number of copies in 2013 Concept One was then the fastest serial car in the world. Mass production, of course, is a big exaggeration, with a total of 17 cars made for between $ 1.6 million and $ 2.4 million. There is certainly no problem with quality: in 2018, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) also selected it as one of the 10 best technologies in the world.

That’s why many of those interested in electric cars are excited about the concept-success supercar, the successor to the Concept One, the Rimac Fridge model, which the company unveiled in the form of a concept car at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Rimac Nevera is already shocking car fans with its surreal capabilities: the body of the 2.15-tonne vehicle is made of carbon fiber plastic to offset the weight of the batteries in it. However, the car still reaches 100 km / h from a standstill in 1.85 seconds (!), Accelerates from 0 to 300 in 9.3 seconds and has a top speed of around 415 km / h. This is due to four electric motors that propel the Nevera with a total of 1,914 horsepower. The car also got some special features: a face recognition system has been added, which will allow only the owner to start the car, and will also be able to drive level 4, according to the company founder.

Rimac Nevera charges 333 kilowatts

The Croatian supercar is now in the news because it is InsideEVs spotted Mate Rimac posting a couple of photos on her Facebook page showing Rimac Nevera standing on an Ionity charger.

The company founder, backed by photos, said the car was able to pick up 311 kilowatts from the charger when the battery was 32 percent charged. Later, at 80 percent, it dropped to 141 kilowatts, but around 62 percent, it was able to jump to 333 kilowatts.

Mate Rimac wrote next to the photos that the Nevera could charge up to 500 kilowatts if the charging poles allowed it.

By the way, the car only took 21 minutes to charge, during which time its batteries were 10 to 80 percent charged. This is roughly the same as the performance of the American luxury limousine, Lucid Air.

Incidentally, Rimac Nevera has a WLTP range of 550 kilometers according to factory data, and the aforementioned 1,914-horsepower engine breaks the asphalt with an astonishing 2360 Nm of torque. Anyone who wants a similar vehicle will have to reach deep into their pockets, paying $ 2.4 million for the sports car, but it’s okay to make just 150 of the world’s fastest “mass-produced” cars.
