Yamaha Motor Co Ltd exhibited a three-wheeled "EV commuter" at Super Welfare Expo, which took place from Nov 7 to 13, 2017, at Shibuya Hikarie, in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan.
The EV, "07GEN," is expected to be used as a handle-equipped electric wheelchair (so-called senior car) and can be driven on a sidewalk. It does not require a driver's license. Its maximum speed is 6km/h (approx 3.7mph). Yamaha Motor expects that the EV can travel 30km (approx 18.6 miles) per charge.
