The Rimac Nevera is now certified to be sold in the United States after the electric hypercar recently received the required certifications from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

CEO Mate Rimac shared the news of the certifications on his Facebook page, saying that their second production unit is currently undergoing testing in Zagreb, Croatia ahead of its delivery to an unnamed customer. (via AutoBlog)

According to CARB, the 2022 Rimac Nevera will be able to travel 287.28 miles (462km) on a full charge from its 130kWh battery pack.

Owners of the Nevera, of which there will be just 150, probably won’t be too concerned with that figure though, with most likely purchasing the electric hypercar for its performance.

The Nevera produces 1,914 horsepower and can reach 60mph in under 2 seconds, slightly quicker than the Tesla Model S Plaid.

It can also complete the quarter-mile in just over 8.5 seconds, again slightly quicker than what a stripped-out Model S Plaid was able to achieve in Quebec last week.

The Nevera tops out at 258mph (415km/h), slightly more than the Ingenext-hacked Model S Plaid’s 347km/h record set earlier this month, although they ran out of road and believe it could go even higher.

However, it will also be much more expensive that Tesla’s flagship sedan as the Nevera will set you back over $2 million.
