5 April 2022 – More awards for the Croatian hypercar Rimac Nevera, this time from the team at Top Gear in the UK. 

The Rimac Nevera has tonight won the award for the Best Performance Car at the 2022 TopGear.com Electric Awards. 

“On behalf of the Rimac team, that have worked relentlessly to perfect Nevera over the past few years, it’s a huge privilege to have it singled out amongst a very strong group as the best performance electric car in the world today,” the company said. 

The Rimac Nevera set the world record for the fastest accelerating production car back in June, clocking the ¼-mile in 8.582 seconds, at a top speed of 167.51mph.

Designed, engineered, tested and manufactured in-house at Rimac Automobili’s global headquarters in Croatia, Nevera’s name proudly carries its Croatian heritage. A nevera is a mighty Croatian storm, known for its speed, ferocity and energy.

“But Nevera is about so much more than speed. With the largest battery pack ever fitted to a production car, it can travel 340 miles on a single charge. With in-house-developed Rimac All-Wheel-Torque Vectoring 2 it’s as agile as it is fast, and with electrically adjustable dampers and active aerodynamics it’s comfortable and quiet on a cruise, and a performance machine on a track,” CEO Mate Rimac said earlier.
