Why it's green: Hybrid.

Why it's cool: Sporty styling.

The Honda CR-Z is powered by a small, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine, which gets an assist from a battery-powered electric motor when needed. Together, the system produces 122 horsepower, which is reasonably peppy for such a small package. With an optional, fuel-efficient Continuously Variable Transmission, the CR-Z is expected to get 36 mpg city/38 mpg highway, Honda says. U.S. sales start late this summer, according to Honda.
