Respected automotive engineer Gordon Murray has announced at the Tokyo Motor Show, Yamaha is revealed to be the first company adopting iStream, and will use it to build the tiny Motiv city car--the closest true competitor for the Smart Fortwo the market has seen. The two earlier city cars had three-seat layouts inspired by Murray's work on the McLaren F1 supercar and even a forward-hinged canopy, but Yamaha's vehicle is more conventional--with side-by-side seating and two regular doors.
