CR-Z Concept From Honda

CR-Z Concept From Honda

Makuhari Messe, Japan

No denying this Honda CR-Z concept is a very nice-looking car, but it might still be too small for American tastes where a hybrid is concerned. Toyota has proven that car-buyers need not suffer if they buy a hybrid; that a hybrid can easily fill most every slot in a car-makers line-up, even up to their most luxurious vehicle (as in the $124,000 Lexus LS600h L). And with Porsche using the Toyota system in their upcoming hybrid Cayenne SUV, and Nissan also using the Toyota-developed hybrid system in their Altima hybrid, the marketplace has decided, at least in this early stage of hybrid and other "green" vehicles, that Toyota is the big winner ... At least so far.
