The model is equipped with a total of 400kW motors powering a four-wheel drive system which can accelerate the vehicle from 0 to 100km/h in under four seconds.

Inside, the Zero Concept comes with a variety of user experience enhancing features such as high-end Yamaha speakers, customizable ambient lighting, on-board cameras, etc.
