Yamaha Tesseract hybrid 4-wheeled concept vehicle

The Tesseract from Yamaha Motor Co. is a hybrid 4-wheeled vehicle powered by a combination of a liquid-cooled V-twin gasoline engine and an electric motor. The Tesseract will be displayed at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show, which will open at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on Oct. 27 and run through Nov. 11. The Yamaha Tesseract is also designed with a unique dual-scythe suspension that enables cornering with a lean (banking) like a motorcycle despite the 4-wheel format. There is also a dual arm-lock system that keeps the machine upright when at rest without a stand. It offers excellent performance and maneuverability with a machine width roughly equivalent to that of a 2-wheeler.

The Tesseract is one of 19 concept vehicles the bike maker will exhibit under the ”Art of Engineering” theme at the Tokyo Motor Show.
