Yamaha Motiv electric ‘smart car’ detailed


Nice looking Smart Car-like design from Yamaha. Better yet, a full electric option.

Engine choice is currently open–but both gasoline and electric options could be explored, Murray’s iStream process accommodating both. The concept vehicle is electric, and weighs just 1,609 lbs.

iStream itself will be the star of the show, vastly reducing the cost and time associated with building such a vehicle, while tube frame construction makes it near-endlessly adaptable. These should contribute to a lower bottom line.
