Yo-mobil' - the new russian hybrid car.



ë-AUTO has introduced 3 hybrid-electric prototypes - a microvan, cross coupe and fourgon models.
The three vehicles were all designed by Andrey Trofimchuk and the prototypes were built by Cardi, which is responsible for the ë-mikroven and ë-van, and R.A.D. which made the ë-cross-coupe. Both houses are Moscow-based design studios.
The vehicles feature a hybrid system made up of a multi-blade rotary engine which serves as a generator and electric motors mounted on each axle.
The e-microvan and e-cross-coupe, both with a curb weight 700 kg (1543 lbs), will feature a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 8 seconds and fuel-economy of 3.5 liters/100 km. The larger e-van, with a curb weight of 750 kg (1653 lbs), is a lot slower, with a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 15 seconds. It's fuel economy is 4 liters/100 km. All three vehicles have a maximum speed of 130 km/h (80 mph).
The models will go into a limited production of around 10,000 units a year in 2012. The constructor will be the holding company Onexim Yarovit.
ë-AUTO will swing open its doors and make the three prototypes available for public viewing from January 2-12.

  13. 130 km/h is way enough for the van. I hope we'll see more hybrid cars rolling on the streets soon.
