The concept Yamaha showcased was all-electric and they term it MOTIV.e!

Speaking of the Motiv, the small two seater vehicle was designed on be-half of Yamaha by the legendary British designer - Gordan Murray, who designed the exemplary McLaren F1 90’s supercar and the exuberant Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

Adding more on the Yamaha Motiv, rumor has it, that along with the all-electric version, Motiv will also be powered by a 1-liter petrol engine.

Moreover, the Yamaha show-car at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show was powered by a 33 hp electric motor which provides the vehicle a range of 100 miles (161 km).

According to the company, a full charge could be completed in about three hours from a regular, domestic socket or in just one hour, when using a quick charger. Now, the rumored 1-liter 3-cylinder petrol engine is expected to produce power in the range of 60-80 bhp. With the manufacturing of this car, Yamaha will construct a new  facility in Europe and will majorly compete with Smart Car in USA.
