Final Label to mark end of Honda CR-Z

Honda has announced that it will be ending production of its CR-Z hybrid sports model this year. The Japanese automaker has revealed an "α · Final label" as 'gratitude' to nearly 4 million units sold since its launch in February of 2010.

The Honda CR-Z “α · Final label” will come with a special black interior, exclusive matte-finish 17-inch lightweight aluminum wheels, “CR-Z Final label” logo embroidered on its black sport seats, special steering wheel garnish, and an exclusive CR-Z Final label aluminum badge on the center console.

It will be available in either 6-speed manual transmission or CVT equipped models starting June 10 in Japan.

The decision to end the Honda CR-Z is quite sudden, considering that it just received its facelift August of last year, with the Philippines receiving the updated version early this year.
