MOSCOW -- Russia’s first hybrid concept car branded as “Yo” will be demonstrated at a yo-mobile pavilion in downtown Moscow that will be open for general public from January 2 through 11, Alexander Sinkevich, the technical director of the Yo-Auto company project, told Itar-Tass.

According to Sinkevich, the pavilion in Tverskoi boulevard has already been open for two weeks “but only for specialists.” Now it will be open for general public as well.

“During the New Year holidays, access to the pavilion will be free. General public is welcome to examine first three models - a microvan, a cross coupe, and a minitruck,” he said. In his words, these are environment-friendly and energy-saving cars for everyday use in urban conditions powered both by gasoline and liquefied gas.
