Putin drives hybrid yo-mobile – Click above to watch video after the jump

Last Friday, Russian prime minister and avid automotive enthusiast Vladimir Putin strapped in behind the wheel of the yo-mobile – the natural gas hybrid vehicle dreamed up by the Richest Man in Russia – and set out on a three-mile test drive. Putin's destination? The home of Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev.

Before embarking on this epic journey, Putin, perhaps jokingly, questioned the wacky yo-mobile name and turned to Prohkorov for reassurance, asking:
I hope it will not fall into pieces. Will it?
Hit the jump to catch video that includes Putin's sarcastic comments (translated to English) and his three-mile yo-mobile test drive.
