Honda to launch hybrid CR-V, Fit

Honda will launch a hybrid version of the Fit subcompact in mid-2007 and CR-V crossover in late 2006, according to an industry insider. In an interview with HybridCars, the source said Fit will get the same engine as the Insight hybrid. Specific details of the new CR-V were not given. The Leftlane Perspective: Could the launch of the hybrid CR-V coincide with the release of the redesigned 2007 Honda CR-V? Based on the timeframe given, this seems quite likely.
