- 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.

How far can the confrontation between Russia and the West go? Is there a line where the two sides will stop before starting with a clean sheet? So far, the confrontation has only been growing. The Cold War II may begin any day, if it is not already underway. It appears that the West and the Kremlin have no answers to these questions.
