This is what Japanese manufacturer Honda must have thought when announcing the E3 debut for the Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid on June 15. The car will be tucked away in between tons and tons and video games, displays, monitors, consoles and so on, in the Honda booth (F7) in the West Hall Lobby.
"The all-new 2011 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid coupe will make its Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 Expo) debut on June 15th. Evocative of video games, the two-passenger CR-Z introduces a number of interactive features including a new three-mode drive system that allows the driver to select between Sport, Econ (Economy) and Normal driving modes," the carmaker says in a statement.
To have a better idea of what the car is all about (in case you're more of a games freak than an automobile aficionado), we should tell you the CR-Z is powered by a petrol 1.5l i-VTEC engine paired with Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist electric system.
Together, the two deliver a combined output of 122 HP and 128 lb.-ft (174 Nm) of torque. Honda offers a six speed manual gearbox or an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The has proven to be a big hit in Japan, where in little under a month it registered over 7,000 orders to its name.
