Honda CR-Z “Alpha Final Label” Edition Released in Japan

Is the CR-Z going to car heaven?

Honda Japan has released a CR-Z special edition called the Alpha Final Label edition, commemorating the car ending its production, at least for the Japanese market. The CR-Z is currently the only hybrid available with a manual gearbox and has offered one since it first debuted in 2010.  In a news release, Honda said that the CR-Z "Final Label" edition will go on sale Japan on June 10 but it's yet to be known if this variant will be sold outside of the automaker's home market.

Additional standard equipment found on the CR-Z Alpha Final Label edition include 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels, an "Alpha Final Label" plate embedded in the dash, "CR-Z Final Label" embroidery on the seatbacks, a tonneau cover, navigation, and piano black steering wheel accents. All CR-Z "Alpha Final Label" edition cars will be available in a solid or two-tone exterior color schemes. Under the hood is the same 1.5-liter I-4 coupled to an electric motor for a combined output of 130 hp and 127 to 140 lb-ft of torque depending on whether you choose the standard six-speed manual or the optional CVT.
