D as developed together with partners Delta Motorsport and itMoves The smallest vehicle will be presented at the Move 2020 trade fair in London.

The motif looks like a bread maker on four wheels. With a length of 2.54 meters, a width of 1.31 meters and a height of 1.63 meters, it is designed to be ultra-compact. Only the roof, a small pane in front and strips in the flanks are glazed. The 13-inch wheels are placed far in the corners. Access to the single-seat interior is provided by a wing door that opens to the side and extends to the vehicle floor. In addition to a seat, passengers can also expect a 24-inch display that can be used in a variety of ways. Optionally, the motif can also be used as a transport box without a seat. Then it offers space for around 1,100 liters of luggage.

Around 100 kilometers range

Under the body, the patented iStream aluminum chassis structure is designed to ensure crash safety at the highest level. A 20 kW and 48.4 Nm electric motor takes over the drive. A 17.3 kWh battery, which is located in the underbody, should give the motif a range of around 100 kilometers. When it comes to charging technology, the Motiv uses CCS. This should allow the battery to be recharged from 20 to 80 percent in just under 40 minutes. The motif, which weighs around 450 kilograms without a battery, should be able to accelerate from zero to 62 km /h in 7.5 seconds. The top speed is specified as 65 km /h.

Equipped with numerous sensors and radar systems, the motif can also move through traffic completely autonomously. If the motif is driven by a driver, a driver's license for class L7e, according to which the motif is classified, is sufficient. As early as 2013, Murray had a collaboration presented a small car study with Yamaha named Motiv . But nothing came of this concept.
