Honda CR-Z Models and CR-Z History

Hondas first two-door hybrid vehicle since the Insight, the CR-Z projected itself as a sporty use of an electrically assisted powerplant. Debuting for 2011 as a relative to the five-door Insight, the CR-Z was marketed as a sport hybrid coupe. The iconic Civic CRX produced during the 1980s and 1990s heavily inspired the three-door hatchbacks exterior appearance.


For North America, the 2011 Honda CR-Zs interior was configured as a two-seater. Incorporating Hondas Integrated Motor Assist technology, the 2011 CR-Z was propelled by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder gasoline engine combined with a 10-kilowatt electric motor. Through a 3-Mode Drive System with Eco Assist, the driver could select between Normal, Sport and Economy driving settings. Developing a combined 122 horsepower, output for the 2011 Honda CR-Z could be channeled through a six-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). With the CVT, the 2011 CR-Z average city/highway fuel economy was rated at 37 miles per gallon.


Vehicle Stability Assist, power windows, six-speaker audio system and automatic climate control arrived standard on the CR-Z hybrid coupe. A number of performance enhancements were added to the 2013 model year CR-Z. Output from the 2013 Honda CR-Zs electric motor grew to 15 kilowatts while the nickel-metal hydride battery was replaced with a higher capacity lithium-ion pack.


With combined horsepower increased to 130 horsepower, the 2013 Honda CR-Z improved hybrid power train also provided a marginal increase in fuel economy. Allowing the driver to explore the performance of the sport hybrid coupe in a deeper manner, Plus Sport System on the Honda provides an acceleration boost under certain conditions.
