Honda Speaks about Hybrid Sports Car Plan
A lot has been said about hybrid cars from Honda. A few weeks ago, we had reported that the Acura NSX hybrid could be on its way.

Nobuki Ebisawa is the design boss at Honda. He revealed that they are considering working on a hybrid high performance sports car. According to Ebisawa, “This is something that we are considering, and the CR-Z is only one shape of Honda’s hybrid sports cars in the current age.”
