Honda CR-Z Hybrid Goes 100 MPH

Hybrid vehicles are not exactly known for their performance.

Well, most hybrid vehicles.

This car journalist could have selected any car his heart desires to race in the MTN Kalahari Desert SpeedWeek, but he chose the Honda CR-Z Hybrid vehicle.

“While you will continue seeing many a Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, I can assure you that nobody else will be bringing a CR-Z to the pan. Not this year. And probably not next year either. So to say that I’m the only person to drive one of these fairly rare coupés down the 5km desert drag strip is quite cool. Well in my book anyway.”

When he wrote this article, he’d gotten it into the 100 mph club, which is very respectable for the soft racing surface and even beats out more expected with V-8 engines like the Porsche 356 Outlaw.

If you own a Honda CR-Z, he also gives you some pointers on how to get to 100mph despite the eco-friendly hybrid technology. :)
