Honda's new CEO confirms production CR-Z hybrid

Honda’s new CEO, Takanobu Ito, has announced plans to begin sales of the CR-Z sports hybrid model in Japan in February 2010. The CR-Z concept car made its world debut at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show in 2007.

By combining this new model with the current Insight and Civic Hybrid, Honda will further enhance its line-up of compact hybrid models, powered by Honda’s compact, lightweight, and efficient Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system. The IMA system will also be introduced into the award-winning Honda Jazz within the next few years. In addition, Honda is currently developing a new hybrid system, which is intended to be suitable for installation in mid-to-large vehicles.

Ito succeeds Takeo Fukui as CEO of Honda, having been president of Honda’s R&D operation previously. Like his predecessor, Ito has a background as an engineer and was instrumental in bringing the NSX from concept to reality. Ito was in charge of one of the most challenging development areas as the project leader for the NSX’s groundbreaking aluminum unibody construction.
