Finnish carmaker Toroidion has unveiled a new all-electric concept at the Top Marques Monaco event, packing a sizable 1000kW or power.

Called the 1MW (for one megawatt, or 1000kW), the concept aims to demonstrate a new drivetrain for Toroidion which the carmaker says is entirely street legal.

Toroidion is keeping the 1MW’s acceleration and battery range figures to itself for now, but with 1000kW motivating a “lightweight” design, the concept is unlikely to disappoint performance-wise.

The carmaker says the concept offers scalable performance, making it “ideal for running around town or racing around the track”.

The 1MW features a lightweight battery, which can be exchanged via a ‘rapid battery swap’ along the lines of Tesla’s program in the US.

Toroidion adds that the 1MW is safe for both owners and service crew, in that the battery is as easily swapped in the pit lane as it is in the home garage.

Four electric motors drive each wheel independently, with the rear motors harbouring more power than the front pair.

The body features a sleek, flowing design with a low nose and gullwing doors, while the interior features a two-seat layout with racing harnesses and a simplistic switch arrangement on the dashboard.

“There is no such thing as ‘it cannot be done’ - I believe in pushing the boundaries in product development and design,” Toroidion founder, Pasi Pennanen, said.

Toroidion was established in 2011 with the aim of developing an all-electric powerplant to compete in the Le Mans 24-Hour.
