Honda CR-Z offers eco-friendly successor to '80s classic

Honda's new CR-Z (Compact Renaissance Zero) proves that merging green automotive technology with practical-yet-futuristic style is indeed possible. Currently being shown off at the Tokyo Motor Show, the CR-Z makes nice with the environment by employing a gas-electric hybrid system.

Despite the car's "concept vehicle" tag, Honda has confirmed that the CR-Z will in fact hit the streets in 2009 (pricing has not been announced). If you want to get an up-close gander at the successor to the classic CRX hatchback of the '80s, you have until November 11th to make it to the Tokyo Motor Show in Chiba City, Japan.
