2011 Honda CR-Z
The CR-Z has a 1.5L 4 Cyl making 122 HP. It's assisted with an electric motor & the gearbox here is a CVT.
Sorry but midway thru this video, the battery to my HD Cam died so I had to use my iPod Nano.
The CVT here can simulate 7 gear ratios which can be done using the paddle shifters on the steering wheel. But IMO, better off getting the 6 Speed manual version as it will be fun to drive & will feel more natural.
Honestly, this is the only Hybrid car I wouldn't mind to own simply because Honda tried to deliver a sporty coupe with a fun factor to it. The manual gearbox which is something non of the other hybrids out there offer, & it's $19K price which isn't too bad. I do wish it were a 4 seater as theres room for it & I would've liked to see some better materials used here & there. But how could I forget, I want an armrest!!!!

http://www.futurelooks.com - Futurelooks reviews their biggest gadget ever! The 2011 Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid coupe is the first of hopefully a line of vehicles that take the rubbish handling and feeling out of the hybrid concept. with a hot design reminiscent of the original "CRX" the CR-Z should make a hybrid driver out of you. That's if you don't have kids as the North American version is missing the backseats. During our test, the car definitely got some looks from passerbys and was a lot of fun overall.
Full review and conclusions from the reviews are coming up on a post @futurelooks.com!

The video was mainly shot using the Canon HF 100 with a Halo Rig Mini and APEX 175 shotgun microphone. Other shots were done with the Olympus PEN E-P2 (Steve Weber segment) and an APEX 175 shotgun mic. All of the car chase shots were done with a couple of Flip Video Mino HDs attached using suction mounts. Everything was edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and Magic Bullet Looks.

2011 Honda CR-Z review by Edmunds.
Making its North American debut, the CR-Z is a next-generation lightweight sports car concept equipped with Honda's original gas-electric hybrid system that achieves both clean performance and a high level of torque. The CR-Z stands for "Compact Renaissance Zero" - an expression intended to capture the idea of a renaissance in the design of compact cars that begins anew from fundamentals. The design research model of a lightweight hybrid sports car features advanced technologies that deliver elevated driving performance while reducing the vehicle's environmental footprint.
Designed to be futuristic and dynamic, the CR-Z combines powerful performance in a compact form with a futuristic image. For its frontal view, an over-sized grill with a high-performance look is offset by openings on each side that lighten the overall feel. In the rear, tube-shaped rear combination lamps create a powerful presence.
Design details emphasizing the CR-Z's advanced image include door mirrors that provide high visibility in a stylish form, LED headlights that convey a sharp impression, and jaunty fin-shaped sub-lights. Large 19-inch wheels suggest dynamic driving performance.
The key words for the CR-Z's interior design are "Hi-tech and Sporty." The goal was to create an all-new sporty interior that fuses the liberating feel of airy spaciousness with an advanced interface that brings out the fun of driving. Mesh material on a simple framework construction is used throughout the interior to convey a light, sophisticated image. In the cockpit, the meter unit conveys the image of advanced technology ensconced in a piece of glass artwork, offering quick recognition and a futuristic and exhilarating appearance. The CR-Z concept vehicle made its world debut at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show in November and indicates the styling direction for a second, new hybrid vehicle to be introduced by Honda Motor Co., Ltd. The other future hybrid vehicle, designed to meet the needs of a family and priced below the Civic Hybrid, is planned for introduction in 2009.
The FCX Clarity is a next-generation, zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle based on the entirely new Honda V Flow fuel cell platform, and powered by the highly compact, efficient and powerful Honda V Flow fuel cell stack. Featuring tremendous improvements to driving range, power, weight and efficiency - and boasting a low-slung, dynamic and sophisticated appearance, previously unachievable in a fuel cell vehicle - the FCX Clarity marks the significant progress Honda continues to make in advancing the real-world performance and appeal of the hydrogen-powered fuel cell car.
American Honda plans to lease the FCX Clarity to a limited number of retail consumers in Southern California with the first deliveries taking place in summer 2008. Full details of the lease program will be set closer to launch, but current plans call for a three-year lease term with a price of $600 per month.
American Honda is also developing a service infrastructure that provides customers with the best balance of convenience and the highest quality of service. When the FCX Clarity requires periodic maintenance, customers will simply schedule a visit with their local Honda dealer. American Honda will transport the vehicle to its fuel cell service facility, located in the greater Los Angeles area, where all required work will be performed. At the completion of the work, the customer will pick up their car from the dealer.
The FCX Clarity utilizes Honda's V Flow stack in combination with a new compact and efficient lithium ion battery pack and a single hydrogen storage tank to power the vehicle's electric drive motor. The fuel cell stack operates as the vehicle's main power source. Hydrogen combines with atmospheric oxygen in the fuel cell stack, where chemical energy from the reaction is converted into electric power used to propel the vehicle. Additional energy captured through regenerative braking and deceleration is stored in the lithium ion battery pack, and used to supplement power from the fuel cell, when needed. The vehicle's only emission is water. The FCX Clarity's revolutionary new V Flow platform packages the ultra-compact, lightweight and powerful Honda V Flow fuel cell stack (65 percent smaller than the previous Honda FC stack) in the vehicle's center tunnel, between the two front seats. Taking advantage of a completely new cell configuration, the vertically-oriented stack achieves an output of 100 kilowatts (kW) (versus 86kW in the current Honda FC stack) with a 50 percent increase in output density by volume (67 percent by mass). Its compact size allows for a more spacious interior and more efficient packaging of other powertrain components, which would otherwise be unattainable in a sleek, low-slung sedan. Honda introduced the FCX Clarity at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

2011 NAIAS Honda CRZ Hybrid Coupe Type R
Honda brought out its new CRZ Hybrid Coupe for the Autoshow this year. The exterior styling really stands out with its widebody front bumper, hood scoop, carbon fiber spoiler, rear diffuser, and its center placed dual Exhaust. The Dunlop Performance tires and 19in wheels also compliment the look they're going for. Under the hood you'll find a 1.5L turbocharged Inline 4 I-VTEC engine. The sign next to the car said it had an "estimated" output of 175hp and 155 ft lbs of torque although I suspect its lower. What do you guys think of the new model?
Honda CR-Z Mugen Hybrid v Ariel Atom Mugen - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/videoreviews/269185/mugen_vs_mugen_review.html#ixzz1QBbY7ovl
Mugen is a company that doesn't do things by half -- and lately Honda's tuning arm has been extremely busy.
The world's most skeletal car, the Ariel Atom has been given a power Boost without the need for a Supercharger. The result is a 270bhp output from its 2.0-litre Honda-sourced engine that makes it just about the fastest thing on four wheels. Alongside the Atom Mugen we drove the CR-Z Mugen -- currently a one-off tuned version of the hybrid coupe.

2011 Honda CR-Z Review - Honda builds a better MINI Cooper, that just happens to be a hybrid
It's not an econo hatchback for all, but a niche market hybrid perfectly targeted to appeal to a certain group of consumers. No, it doesn't attract the ultra granolas, nor is it a hit with the sort of enthusiasts who know their Hondas not by name, but by chassis code. Instead, the CR-Z is built to appeal to young, urban individuals who value style, fuel economy and a fun-to-drive spirit.
