Honda confirms production of CR-Z and Jazz Hybrid

Honda has just confirmed what’s been rumoured for some time: the Honda CR-Z is coming next year and a Jazz Hybrid will be released in late 2010.

Both cars will be powered by Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA), a shared set up with the Insight and Civic hybrids. In the case of the Insight, the IMA incorporates a 13hp (10kW) electric motor and a compact Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) that retains and stores kinetic energy from vehicle braking and deceleration and supplies additional power for acceleration when needed.

The CR-Z, a sporty hybrid inspired by the CRX and unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007, will go on sale in Japan in February 2010, with the Jazz Hybrid coming a few months later. A formal announcement about the production CR-Z and Jazz Hybrid is expected at the Tokyo Motor Show this October.
