Introducing MOTIV.e, a new electric car from Yamaha

If the Yamaha MOTIV.e sounds or looks familiar, it’s because the Japanese manufacturer bought the idea from former F1 engineer Gordon Murray, who designed the T.25.

This electric microcar is 2,690 mm long and 1,470 mm wide. It can sprint from 0-100 km/h in less than 15 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 105 km/h. Range is estimated at more than 160 km.

All of that comes from a Zytek electric motor (weighing only 13 kg) and a single-speed Vocis transmission.

When it goes on sale (the exact date and price remain unknown), the MOTIV.e will become Yamaha’s first production automobile. The brand once supplied engines to Ford and Volvo, among others.
