Yo-Auto concept is bizarre, has world's funkiest doors [w/video]

Next to all the major automakers debuting vehicles at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show is a lesser-known firm from Russia that operates under the curious name of Yo-Auto (ë-Avto).

The quirky Yo-Concept, unveiled today in Frankfurt, is one of four hybrid vehicles the Russian automaker is reportedly working on. And even though the Yo-Concept is not destined for production, execs say this unique concept previews the company's stylings and that it will function as a design model for all of Yo-Auto's future vehicles.

The Yo-Concept reportedly features some sort of extended-range setup similar to the gas-electric plug-in system that powers the Chevrolet Volt. Of course, the Yo-Concept's trickest feature has to be its novel curved doors that slide up and to the rear of the vehicle.
