2011 Honda CR-Z to Launch at $19,200

Will be one of market’s lowest-cost hybrids.

by on Jun.22, 2010

Add in destination charges and you'll be able to get the new 2011 Honda CR-Z for less than $20,000.

Honda dealers will get the official go to start selling the maker’s latest hybrid model, on August 10, and the Japanese maker says the 2011 Honda CR-Z will carry a base price of $19,200 – plus a $750 destination charge – making it one of the market’s lowest-price gasoline-electric vehicles.

Reminiscent of the long-lamented Honda CR-X, the sporty 2-seat coupe will be offered only with a hybrid powertrain, in this case a 1.5-liter VTEC-based gasoline engine mated to the maker’s well-known Integrated Motor Assist system.

In an unusual move, Honda will offer CR-Z buyers the choice of a 6-speed manual gearbox or the Continuously Variable Transmission the carmaker’s other hybrid models are normally outfitted with.  But even the CVT will come with sporty wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
