Tesla is perhaps the company that has had the most impact on electrification. Tesla is the pioneer of all electric companies, and his frenzy inspired every manufacturer to at least give electrification a shot. It only makes sense that the venerable company would try to create the world's quickest electric vehicle. Unfortunately, a challenger is coming! The electric Rimac Nevera is named after a brief storm that had strong wind and lightning.
A Smaller Amount of the Cost
The Nevera is expected to cost a staggering 2.4 million dollars, but the roadster promises a comparable experience for just $10,000. Customers must pay $50,000 to reserve one of Tesla's Roadsters because they are still in the pre-order stage.
The $2,400,000 Rimac Nevera, on the other hand, has a considerably more private and customized design. Customers are prompted to enter specific personal information with the assurance that a team member would contact them shortly. Only time will tell what exactly transpires after this contact.
The Roadster completes a 0-60 mph test in 1.9 seconds, which is a remarkable achievement for any vehicle, including Hyper cars. Given that Tesla Models are renowned for their incredible speed, this is not entirely unexpected. The difference in speeds between EVs and gas-powered vehicles can be largely attributed to the instantaneous torque that electric motors can generate.
The Rimac Nevera, on the other hand, can reach 60 mph in just 1.85 seconds. This implies that even luxury hyper car brands like Bugatti face fierce competition. Tesla has a good amount of ground to make up due to the timing being somewhat nose-to-nose.
Tesla has the Range
Although the Nevera's battery has a respectable 340-mile range, the Roadster's enormous 620-mile range easily outshines the "storm." A 620-mile range may sound unattainable, but Tesla prototypes have been known to go considerably beyond, constantly pushing the envelope.
The Roadster can travel from Paris all the way to London and back in a single journey, while the Rimac has roughly enough range to travel nonstop from Los Angeles to San Francisco.
Although the Nevera claims to have 1,914 horsepower, it is difficult to trust this given that the Roadster is only expected to have a maximum of 1000 horsepower. The weight of either vehicle is the only unanswered question, as neither manufacturer has yet to offer weights for their models.
If the Nevera weighs almost twice as much as the roadster, it might explain why a vehicle with nearly twice as much horsepower could only outperform the roadster by.05 seconds in a 0-60 mph test. One of two things will happen here: either the Rimac has a few less horsepower than anticipated, or the Roadster's potential is vastly overestimated in the forecasts.
The Roadster looks more like a Tesla first and a sports vehicle second, whereas the Nevera's aggressive styling gives it the classic supercar look. While evoking futuristic nostalgia and innovative technology, the Tesla's very rounded and slightly amorphous exterior never quite seems to escape the uncanny valley.
The slick Tesla Roadster
It sort of always seems out of place on any street, but maybe as more vehicles start to adopt this design, the standard will change in the Roadster's favor.
The cabin of the Roadster is far superior to that of the Nevera because it has room for four people and the distinctively huge Tesla infotainment features. The Nevera's interior is stunning, but the dashboard and seats have a bare-bones, performance-focused feel that is typical of many super and hyper car interiors.
For every model it introduces to the market, Tesla constantly produces minimalist interiors that are optimized. Every nook and cranny you can imagine has been attended to and cared for before you even realize you need it when you simply sit behind the wheel of a Tesla.

Efficacy Of SpaceX
Although the standard Roadster falls short of the Nevera in a head-to-head contest, the secret SpaceX package might accelerate the Tesla car to 60 mph in just 1.1 seconds utilizing cold gas thrusters designed for space.
The SpaceX package is obviously still a long way from being homologated because it is too fresh and volatile to be released so quickly. So, it appears that the Nevera will continue to lead the pack in terms of performance and speed.
Despite the enormous anticipation for both vehicles, there will be a wait before consumers can purchase these electric supercars. People seem to have to wait a little longer to drive either car, especially considering the Roadster's extraordinarily bold plans to attach real rocket nozzles to the sides of the vehicle.
