Honda CR-Z Mugen

When you think about low emission cars you don’t usually think about super-charged performance at the same time.

But all that may be about to change thanks to the company that can fairly claim to be one of the true pioneers of eco-friendly motoring; namely, Honda.

That’s because the car manufacturer has recently revealed initial tantalizing details of its first truly supercharged hybrid car; the Honda CR-Z Mugen.

The Honda CR-Z hybrid coupe is already one of the world’s best hybrid cars, and the only one, currently, with a manual gearbox rather than a CVT.

It also has to be one of the simply best-looking sports cars on the planet. Its design and production followed on from fellow Honda concept hybrid cars; namely, the Honda Remix, and the Honda Small Hybrid Sports.

The CR-Z was first unveiled as a concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007. “CR-Z” stands for ‘Compact Renaissance Zero’- and it was designed to be sporty, efficient and inexpensive.

It’s a car with a history of stylish looks. When you add to this its green credentials, it’s a logical step to produce the perfect car for those of us who yearn for high performance, but still have a bit of an environmental conscience left!

The CRZ is capable of handling more power. And the company says that development of the supercharged version is going well.

Mugen Euro is a Northamptonshire-based super tuning company that has joined forces with Honda to produce the supercharged prototype. Honda hopes the prototype vehicle will be both fun – and will demonstrate the true potential of hybrid vehicles. It certainly looks like it will.
