Honda will be introduce their gasoline-electric hybrid CR-Z Concept (replacement of the legendary CR-X) at next month’s Tokyo Motor Show. Only a few changes will be made to the production model that is scheduled to be launched in Japan in February 2010 and the rest of the world.

There’s no information on the CR-Z’s hybrid engine, but recent reports evoke that power will comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine outfitted with Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist technology. Connected to a six-speed manual transmission, the engine should allow the CR-Z to be entertaining and efficient.
