That factory also made the mostly all aluminum Insight when it first came out. The little two seater. Of which, most are still on the road getting 60+ Hwy MPG :hump:Think about it this way: If CR-Z's were to be built in the U.S., American Honda would have announced a release date at the Detroit Auto Show in January. Here we are two days away from April and no word yet from AH other than "late summer". In other words, they still don't know when they will get enough cars to put at least put in every dealer's show room.
I'm pretty sure the CR-Z's will come from the same factory that built NSX's and S2000's. This is the highest quality factory in Honda's arsenal, but back in 2000 had a capacity of 25-30K units annually, if I recall correctly. Even with overtime it will be a strain to fill the world-wide pipeline so expect to see initial scarcity in the U.S. since we get it last.
