Honda CR-Z Wins Car of the Year Japan 2010-2011

The Honda CR-Z hybrid may not be exactly what we hoped for in the US, but the small hybrid has been awarded the Car of the Year Japan 2010-2011 by the Japan Car of the Year Executive Committee.

Takanobu Ito, President and CEO, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. stated, “We are very proud that the CR-Z has been selected from the strong contenders of new models as the Car of the Year Japan 2010-2011. This award shows that the public has accepted Honda’s aspiration to supply exceptional environmental performance in a fun-to-drive hybrid car at an affordable price, as well as Honda’s desire to spread the joy of owning and driving a car. We also believe that this award for the CR-Z reflects the true value of the combined efforts of our business partners and the many others who supported CR-Z development and production. Going forward, Honda intends to bring more joy to an even larger number of customers.”
