Honda's CR-Z Sports Hybrid--The Reality Lurking Deep Within The Crystal Ball?

Nov 2, 2009

Shades of CR-X are alive and kicking in the CR-Z for sure, but are sports hybrids the future of automotive performance? How engaging can a "sports hybrid" be? Will CR-Z be the same as the Mugen Insight we featured a few months back-a bodykit and some trick wheels?

The CR-Z, which is Honda speak for "Compact Renaissance Zero," made quite a splash at the '07 Tokyo Auto Show. It is reportedly headed for production in 2010.

While we would all like to see a "Special K" edition with a K20A under the hood replete with Honda's Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid powertrain riding shotgun, Honda has released little technical information on the production version. Stay tuned, we will continue to work the crystal ball on this one.
