:: CRZ ::
The Honda CR-Z (Compact Renaissance Zero)
is a compact hybrid electric automobile marketed by Honda as a "sport hybrid coupe."
The CR-Z combines a hybrid gasoline-electric powertrain with traditional sports car elements.
The CR-Z is regarded as the spiritual successor to the second generation Honda CR-X
in both name and exterior design.
Sales of the CR-Z began in Japan in February 2010,
and became Honda's third hybrid electric car in the market,
along with the Civic Hybrid and the Insight.
Sales of the CR-Z began in Japan on February 26, 2010,
and in less than one month, Honda received orders for more than
10,000 vehicles, far exceeding its sales forecast.
