JDM Honda CR-Z "Alpha Final Label" Revealed

Is the CR-Z bound for sport hybrid hatch heaven?

Honda Japan has released a special-edition CR-Z called the Alpha Final Label, commemorating the car ending its production -- at least for the Japanese market. The CR-Z is currently the only hybrid available with a manual gearbox, which it has offered one since it first debuted in 2010. In a news release, Honda said that the CR-Z "Final Label" edition will go on sale in Japan on June 10, but it's yet to be revealed whether this variant will be sold outside of the automaker's home market.

Additional standard features on the CR-Z Alpha Final Label edition include 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels, an "Alpha Final Label" plate embedded in the dash, "CR-Z Final Label" embroidery on the seatbacks, a tonneau cover, navigation, and piano black steering wheel accents. All CR-Z "Alpha Final Label" edition cars will be available in solid or two-tone exterior color schemes.

Under the hood is a familiar 1.5-liter inline-four coupled to an electric motor for a combined output of 130 hp and 127 to 140 lb-ft of torque depending on whether you choose the standard six-speed manual or the optional CVT.

Honda has yet to reveal the CR-Z's fate in the U.S. market. It's unclear whether the low-volume niche car will return for a second generation.
