Honda CR-Z Hybrid Goes on Sale
On Thursday Honda Motor Co launched the sporty CR-Z model, its second in a line of low-cost hybrid cars aimed at meeting stricter environmental regulations and expanding sales in the tough global car market.
Honda, Japan's No.2 automaker, has taken a different strategy for gasoline-electric cars from leader Toyota Motor Corp, choosing a simple, one-motor structure to keep costs down, while its rival uses two motors to achieve greater mileage.
The two-door CR-Z follows the Insight launched a year ago, with sales starting in Japan on Friday at 2.27 million yen ($25,340). The model will hit showrooms in North America and Europe from summer or later.
