2016 CR-Z Sold in December 2018? [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 01-04-2019 17:09

Anyone know how this is possible? I would love to see the price and details of this car. Did it sit because of the configuration or was it forgotten about?

For many of us the CR-Zzzzz is the one that needed another revised version. So many virtues, but so flawed for the North American market. If it had the Clarity PHEV or next gen EV battery packs, it would be the ultimate commuter car. The market has moved so far to SUVs that even an eye popping drivetrain won't sell 2 seat sporty commuter cars here. Dead market.

Sales data shows the days of the pocket rocket are gone. These really great small sporty cars don't sell. These would have been red hot in the 80s and 90s.
Miata 511 +3.7%; 8,971 -20.6%
BRZ 349 _17.5%; 3,834 -7.2%
86 295 -30.6%; 4,146 -39.6%
370z 202 -33.6%; 3,468 -24.8%
Spider 184 -36%; 3,515 -22%

I guess these are the new entry level vehicles for 20 somethings. Utility over fun.
CrossTrek 11,295 -8.2%; 144,384 +31.1%
Soul 10,128; 104,709
Kona 8,319; 47,090
Renegade 6,666 -12%; 97,062 -6%
Trax ???; 89,916 +13.4%
HR-V 6,313 -16.3%; 85,494 -9.4%
Kicks 5,704; 23,312
EcoSport 5,472; 54,348
CH-R 4,297 +11%; 49,642 +92.1%
CountryMan 1,178 -23.6%; 17,565 +18.2%
CX-3 1,144 -27.7%; 16,899 +3.3%
500x 336 -50%; 5,223 -32%

On a related note, 8 Venzas (last made in 2015) were somehow sold last month:
