Rimac Automobili, the manufacturer of the world’s fastest all-electric hypercar, and IONITY, Europe’s premier open-brand high-power charging (HPC) network, have forged an extraordinary partnership.
This collaboration marries the awe-inspiring Rimac Nevera hypercar, known for its record-breaking performance, with IONITY’s ultra-fast, dependable, and eco-friendly charging network.
Owners of the Nevera are set to enjoy eight years of unrestricted, complimentary charging at all IONITY stations spanning 24 European countries.
Mate Rimac, Founder, and CEO of Rimac Group, said: “When people think of Rimac, they think of the record-breaking performance that the Nevera delivers, as well as the groundbreaking technologies at the heart of the company.”
“Yet, the Nevera was primarily developed as a hyper GT (Gran Turismo), rather than a track-focused car – it is a user-friendly hypercar. The collaboration with IONITY allows us to take this experience to the next level,” he added.
At the core of this collaboration is the Nevera’s cutting-edge engineering.
Powered by Rimac’s in-house developed drivetrain and a 120kWh lithium manganese nickel battery pack, the Nevera offers a WLTP* range of 490km and a 500kW charging capability.
This remarkable engineering feat, combined with IONITY’s award-winning Halo charger featuring a charging capacity of 350kW, guarantees a 0% to 80% battery charge in just 25 minutes.
Rimac added, “So, IONITY’s extensive charging network is a perfect match for Rimac. IONITY’s HPC technology guarantees a fast and reliable charging experience across Europe, ensuring that pit stops are as short and effortless as possible.”
Michael Hajesch, CEO of IONITY, remarked, “IONITY has set the standards in ultra-fast charging and a seamless user experience across Europe.”
“The partnership with Rimac perfectly reflects our endeavor for performance, reliability, and sustainability. It is based on common values and the pioneering work we do in our respective fields to enable and advance electric mobility,” he added.
IONITY’s pan-European ultra-fast charging network boasts over 500 strategically located stations along Europe’s highways, facilitating long-distance travel across the continent.
This network is open to vehicles of all brands and continuously expanding with new locations, additional charging points, solar roofs, and on-site services to enhance the charging experience.
In addition to providing an exceptional en-route charging experience for Nevera owners, IONITY will install an HPC charging station at the state-of-the-art Rimac Campus near Zagreb, Croatia, currently under construction.
The IONITY six-charger hub will be accessible 24/7 to the public and campus visitors. Furthermore, additional chargers will be added to other areas of the campus, with some scheduled for installation later this year, ensuring their availability for the launch of the first phase of the Rimac Campus in 2024.
Upon the completion of phase one in 2024, the Rimac Campus, spanning an impressive 70,000 m², will serve as a global hub for Rimac components and vehicles.
In the subsequent years, the campus will expand to cover an expansive 100,000 m², incorporating the company’s corporate headquarters and Research & Development (R&D) center, along with various amenities.
Designed with sustainability, carbon neutrality, and the well-being of its 2,500 employees in mind, the campus will also offer the public a chance to enjoy a Rimac brand experience center, retail space, a restaurant, and various events while recharging their vehicles at the lightning-fast IONITY chargers.
To celebrate this remarkable partnership, Rimac and IONITY are embarking on a Rimac Nevera x IONITY Tour across Europe.
The journey commences at the Rimac Factory in Zagreb, Croatia, and traverses some of Europe’s finest routes, concluding in the dazzling destination of Saint-Tropez.
