Yo-Avto, the hybrid-electric vehicle JV owned by the Russian Onexim
Group and Yarovit Motors, has begun building a 45,000 upa assembly
plant in the Maryino Industrial Park in St Petersburg.
The compact Yo brand models to be assembled from late 2012, a
CrossCoupe, Microvan and ‘Furgon’, feature similar specifications,
including dual-fuel gasoline/natural gas spark ignition engines, a
modest 75mph maximum speed and fuel economy of around 67mpg.
