Honda has recently announced the retirement of their CR-Z hybrid sports model, with its production set to stop by the end of 2016. With the date set for its curtain call, the CR-Z will end its six-year production life with the “α · Final label” edition as gratitude for over 4 million units sold since February 2010.
The CR-Z “α · Final label” distinguishes itself from other CR-Zs by way of a special black interior with white contrast stitching, matte-finished 17-inch lightweight aluminum wheels, a “CR-Z Final Label” logo embroidered on the seats, a special steering wheel garnish, and an exclusive “CR-Z Final Label” plaque on the center console.
The CR-Z Final Label will be available with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT in Japan beginning June 10th.
The decision to axe the CR-Z was rather sudden considering that it just recently received a facelift model on august last year, with the Philippines only receiving the updated version early this year.
