Honda CR-Z concept to make production

Honda CR-Z conceptHonda just unveiled its CR-Z Concept at this week’s Tokyo Motor Show, but has already announced that a variation of the car will make production by 2009.

Powered by a gasoline-hybrid engine, the CR-Z Concept is set to have a further range sibling when it enters production in 2009. A “global hybrid” family car also based on the sports hybrid concept will head up a new hybrid range alongside the three-door model. The hybrid systems used on the new range are unlikely to feature plug-in recharging, Honda preferring to refine their lithium-ion batteries.

Honda calls the CR-Z a “lightweight sports car,” indicating that it will have the performance to backup its sporty looks — highlighted by an over-sized grill and twin front air ducts. Honda failed to release any specific information about the show or production car, but it’s believed that the CR-Z shares its powertrain with the current Civic Hybrid.

The CR-Z’s interior follows the design theme of “Hi-tech and Sporty,” achieved by a very futuristic instrument panel. Honda also designed the interior to seem very airy and spacious by using mesh material on a simple framework.
