Honda CRZ Hybrid Model For 2011
2011 Honda CRZ Hybrid
Hybrids can also be full of fun; the two-seater upcoming model of Honda has been designed to demonstrate that. As 2011 model, CRZ hybrid coupe will remain on track and in 2010 on sale. Honda sparing no efforts to make sports car enthusiasts buy it because it’s green, but on the reason that it’s full of fun.
Honda was already planning to introduce the CRZ as a non-hybrid model, but now the company is quite desperate to be reckoned as a hybrid supplier like Toyota. The company says that it definitely needs some hybrid-only dedicated models to get the desired results.
Honda CRZ is being powered with a robust 140-hp, 1.8liter engine (derived from civic) and its electronics, battery, motor and other IMA systems will be likes of the Insight for saving the cost. According to a senior engineer at Honda, “It would be a real fun for nice drive, and reminds you of CRX original.” The things that would this two-seater CRZ a real deal for pocket performance coupe are 2800-lbs total weight, tons of electric assistance for torque with nice and robust gasoline engine.
Recently, Honda has cut back the production of some of its sports cars, as their President Takeo Fukui has announced to cancel the replacement of Acura NSX. Similarly, the company is also no more in Formula 1. So, we can expect that the CRZ for Honda during 2010 would as the CRX for the company in the 1980s.
Good luck Honda
I like to have a hybrid car, due to fuel saving with power and luxury and this one look cute enough to grab the attention.
i like to hybrid car

Honda still needs to offer a gasoline only version. It would have been more affordable, lighter and faster than this expensive, slow hybrid. I still fail to see how it would have “hurt” Honda’s image or sales to offer a both a hybrid and a non-hybrid version.
JUST BOUGHT A HONDA CRZ….NICE BUT LACKS THE POWER I PERSONALLY WOULD HAVE LIKED. THEY SHOULD HAVE PUT THE K ENGINE IN IT….MAKE IT A NON-HYBRID AND DONE SOMETHING ABOUT THAT BLIND SPOT IN THE REAR WINDOW. CAR LOOKS OUTSTANDING, BUT MORE POWER WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE. STILL I BOUGHT IT HOPING THAT AFTERMARKET PARTS MIGHT DO THE TRICK.
