I've been checking out Honda's latest concept... it looks pretty awesome, very sleek and sporty. I've heard the "CR-Z" could possibly be replacing CR-X... also some rumors going around about the possibility of this car being a hybrid, but other sources say that isn't so... I'm excited to see what they come up with - what do you guys think of the look?

I know its going to be a hybrid with some serious speed, but I do wonder if we'll ever see it go up against a Lambo like its predecessor the CR-X did?

The video is pretty interesting, except for the music though.

Isn't everything now either intelligent or advanced?

My 91 will be retired when my CR-Z arrives within the next year and a half or two. 41 MPG vs 60 MPG My only question is as I get older whether I can get in and out of the new one?????????? :) :)

They should make an Si model trim for it. And throw a K20 in it and ditch the hybrid bullshit, that would sell, and make me want one.

Honda launches world's first sporty hybrid car
Kyodo News

Honda Motor Co. on Thursday rolled out the CR-Z, the world's first hybrid sports car.

The car, which will hit domestic showrooms Friday ahead of its global launch, comes with an electric motor equivalent to 1.5 liters and a 2.0-liter gasoline engine for acceleration. Its fuel efficiency is rated at 25 km per liter, compared with about 12 for similar gas-powered Honda models.

Honda said its domestic sales target for the CR-Z is 1,000 units per month, and that prices will start at ¥2.268 million for the four-seater and ¥2.498 million for the upgraded model.

The new hybrid will also be eligible for the government's "green car" tax breaks.

President Takanobu Ito said at a press event in Tokyo that he hopes Honda's latest offering will attract more people to the pleasures of driving.

Noting the global importance of promoting the expansion of hybrid cars, Ito said he believes the CR-Z hybrid will "exceed customers' expectations" because it is fun to drive and environment-friendly.

I think that they said that they are NOT using the k series
instead its supposed to be some hybrid motor that puts out 200whp or some shit
