MOSCOW, December 27 (RIA Novosti)
- Russian Yo-mobile hybrid car orders 10-years ahead - Prokhorov
- Construction of Yo-Mobile plant kicks off in style
- First Yo-Auto cars to run on gasoline
Russia's Yo-Auto plant will offer its first Yo-mobile hybrid cars for sale in December 2012, the company's co-owner, billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, told Rossiya 24 television on Tuesday.
"The Yo-mobile will be (for sale) in December next year as we promised," Prokhorov said.
Prokhorov has said he wants to make a unique eco-friendly hybrid car that would cost less than $10,000.
Prokhorov who has registered as a candidate to challenge Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in the 2012 presidential elections said he would carry through all his business projects, despite his decision to enter politics.
"I have a very strong team and a highly-skilled and professional staff and all the projects I announced in business will be implemented in full," he said.
The annual production capacity of the first Yo-mobile plant near St. Petersburg is estimated at 45,000 cars. Capacity will be doubled after a second stage of the plant is built.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
