The all-new Honda CR-Z made its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit today.
The CR-Z’s compact 2+2 coupe body is coupled with a six-speed manual transmission and petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.
"The CR-Z is a great-looking, sporty car – that’s also a hybrid," said Tom Gardner, head of marketing, Honda (UK).
"Kart-like handling and direct steering will make it great fun to drive, but the hybrid system means exhaust emissions are kept low. With the torque boost of the electric motor, it’s ideally suited to ‘point-to-point’ driving in British towns and cities."
The European version of the CR-Z goes on sale in the UK in summer 2010 and will debut at the Geneva Auto Show 2010 in March.
