According to a recent report, the CR-Z Mugen will be launched in February with a supercharged 1.5-liter engine that develops 178 hp (133 kW / 180 PS).

New details are starting to emerge about the 2012 Honda CR-Z Mugen.

Auto Express says the car will be powered by a 1.5-liter engine which has been equipped with a supercharger and a revised ECU. Thanks to these tweaks, the pint-sized hybrid is rumored to have 178 hp (133 kW / 180 PS) instead of the concept's 197 hp (147 kW / 200 PS). This will reportedly enable the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed in excess of 130 mph (209 km/h).

The CR-Z Mugen is slated to be launched early next year with a base price of approximately £23,000 ($35,820 / €26,780).
