Honda Civic Hybrid And Honda CR-Z: Sales Likely To End Soon?

While sales of the 47-mpg Honda Accord Hybrid mid-size sedan have ticked up as supply grows, the camaker's two other hybrid offerings seem to be in limbo. The Honda Civic Hybrid, a compact four-door sedan, and the Honda CR-Z two-seat sport hatchback are still in the lineup--but their 2014 sales continued to fall.

Pedestrian-Alert Noises For Electric, Hybrid Cars Delayed By NHTSA, Again

Part of the appeal of hybrid and electric cars is their quiet operation, but regulators fear this also poses a danger to pedestrians. That's led to several attempts to equip new hybrids and electric cars with noise-making devices, to alert blind or unaware pedestrians to their approach.
