Yo-Auto's hybrid crossover concept, unveiled at Frankfurt motor show, will go on sale in 2013.

The Yo-crossover is an all-wheel-drive hybrid that partially uses battery power. The batteries charge also themselves at low speeds and when the vehicle is stationary.

The Russian-built car will also have a dual-fuel engine, which will allow a choice of natural gas or petrol as a fuel source.

Yo-Auto claims that when both fuel tanks are full, the Yo-crossover has a range of 435 miles. It has a top speed of 80mph.

At Frankfurt Yo-Auto also showed off the sleek Yo-Concept, a range-extender hybrid. Read more about that concept car here.

The factory where the Yo-crossover will be produced, just outside St Petersberg, is still in the process of being constructed.
