Honda's next dedicated hybrid, the CR-Z, will officially be available in Japan in February of 2010, and in the U.S. and Europe later that year. The CR-Z is an aggressive, sporty coupe that Honda hopes will be priced significantly below all other hybrid offerings. This is part of Honda's "doubling down" on HEVs that we mentioned last month. Though the Insight has not been doing as well as Honda had hoped, they are still committed to low-cost hybrid vehicles and the CR-Z (and hopefully a hybrid Fit) will be a big part of that.
The hybrid Fit has only been announced for the Japanese market, but we have a hard time believing it won't make it's way into the US and Europe. We don't yet have specifics on the engine, final design or price, but as soon as we know, they'll be here.
