The Honda CR-Z Combines Sporty Coupe Performance With Hybrid Efficiency
The Honda CR-Z is not your typical hybrid. First introduced for the 2011 model year, the CR-Z has the look of a sporty coupe along with tight steering and speedy performance. This is a car for any driver who has wanted the improved fuel efficiency of a hybrid without the reduced performance. The CR-Z is a car that should turn heads as you drive down the street.
Before the CR-Z was released, Honda had been playing with the idea of a sportier hybrid for some time. They had released the first mass-produced hybrid to the American marketplace in 1999, the Honda Insight, but wanted a hybrid drivers could get really excited about.
They put out two sporty hybrid concepts called the Remix (shown in 2006 at the LA Auto show) and the Honda Small Hybrid Sports (at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show). The CR-Z name first appeared in 2007 as a concept car. A few other concept versions followed it, and the production model finally debuted in 2010 at the North American International Auto Show held in Detroit, Michigan.
