About Honda CR-Z
The Honda CR-Z is a sport compact hybrid electric automobile manufactured by Honda from 2010 to 2016. It was marketed as a “sport hybrid coupe.” The CR-Z combines a hybrid gasoline-electric powertrain with traditional sports car elements, including 2+2 seating arrangement (excluding North American models where the backseat is removed) and a standard 6-speed manual transmission. The CR-Z is successor to the second generation Honda CR-X in both name and exterior design.
In the U.S., the CR-Z is one of the least polluting vehicles available and is rated as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) as defined by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The CR-Z is the third gasoline-electric hybrid model offered by Honda (after the 2000–2006 Insight and 2003–2005 Civic Hybrid) that can be equipped with a manual transmission, and the only in its class.
The CR-Z is the sixth unique version of Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) technology since the technology was first launched in the first generation Insight 3 door hatchback. Sales of the CR-Z began in Japan in February 2010. Sales in the U.S. began in August 2010, and production ended by the end of 2016. (Source Wiki)
