Perhaps CR-Y Would Have Been More Appropriate

At the Detroit Auto Show, Honda announced that they will indeed manufacture a production version of the CR-Z concept car shown at previous shows and mentioned earlier on this blog. The CR-Z in many ways recalls the extinct CRX (CR-X in the home market), of which I own one of the last copies. The new car, interestingly, will be a hybrid. There's no word on when this car will hit the market.

In other Honda hybrid news, the company re-announced that they will be marketing a new, small hybrid-only model for the 2009 model year. Honda says that it wants 10% of their sales to be hybrids by 2010. It seems strange to me, then, that they recently discontinued the hybrid Accord.
