Sports hybrid to cease production

Honda cans the CR-Z for good

Honda Motors has made the decision to scrap the Honda CR-Z hybrid from its line-up, ceasing production at the end of the year.

The sports electric hybrid, launched in 2010, has been performing poorly since with decreasing sales figures and not delivering on fuel economy and sporty performance.

When it first came out the CR-Z sold 33,745 units globally, sliding to only 4271 vehicles in 2015 being outsold by its competitors.

Delivery to the US has wrapped as it has in Australia earlier this year, selling on 500 cars since arriving in 2012.

Honda says they will now concentrate their efforts on the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid.
