The TMG EV P001 is a road-legal electric vehicle developed by Toyota Motorsport GmbH. It is based on a Radical chassis as modified for e-Wolf, with two EVO Electric axial flux motors powered by a 350 kg (770 lb) lithium-ceramic battery pack.[1] It was developed originally for a customer in 2010.[citation needed] TMG's performance claims include a top speed of 260 km/h (160 mph), 0–50 km/h (31 mph) in 1.8 seconds, and 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds.

In August 2011, driven by Jochen Krumbach, it set a new lap record for an electric vehicle at the Nürburgring Nordschleife of 7mins 47.794secs.[2]
