Rimac Nevera has just completed winter testing ahead of its first-ever delivery to first consumers. Rimac Nevera also recently completed registration tests in the US and the European Union and is scheduled to be delivered in the next few months.
The cold-weather test itself at the Sottozero Pirelli center near the Arctic Circle in Sweden continued for two weeks.
Testing in extreme weather conditions required fine-tuning systems such as ABS, ESP and torque vectoring. At the test site the temperature during the day was “very warm”, and at night the temperature became very extreme.
“Tests on a low gripping surface like this allow us to make consistent and accurate observations of the performance of our system at low temperatures,” explains Miroslav Zrnčevi, head of testing and development at Bugatti-Rimac.
“Things happen a lot slower than they do on asphalt, and we have a nice, level, smooth handling track so we know the data we get isn’t affected by surface imperfections or changes in temperature. After these two weeks of testing, we are happy to see the results we wanted to achieve.” says Miroslav Zrnčevi
Rimac Neverca is an electric hypercar that was first introduced in June 2018. Production of this hypercar is very limited at 150 units and starts at two million euros.
