1MW / 48V

1Mw Concept car

In 2015 the Toroidion engineering team revealed the 1MW concept car, the first proof-of-concept electric supercar powered by our revolutionary high-performance 48V electric powertrain

Toroidion powertrain typically operates on low voltages ranging from 40 to 90 volts and low amperes (below 210 A), yet produces the desired amount of power for anything from smaller vehicles to megawatt scale vehicle applications.

The Toroidion 1MW concept car is street-legal technical prototype and has been designed, developed and built entirely in-house in Finland. Toroidion 1MW Concept car has four direct drive electric motors producing total mechanical power of 1000kW at 48V which is the first of it's kind in the world.


Toroidion powertrain ultimate performance

Toroidion Ltd has developed a new kind of electric motor with an innovative powertrain that is suitable for automotive, marine, aerospace industries as well as industrial machinery (e.g. mining). These are all end-use areas where there is a strong customer need for high performance powertrains that are light weight and have no emissions.

Global launch: The Toroidion 1MW Concept car and our revolutionary powertrain were launched on 16 April 2015 at Top Marques Monaco by H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco.




Toroidion was established in 2011 to develop an entirely new electric powertrain that could compete and win Le Mans 24-hour endurance race.

The founder Pasi Pennanen has spent the past 20 years in the automotive industry developing concept cars and building production models.
