Honda has received 10 times more orders than it was expecting for its new CR-Z sports coupe in the first month of sales in Japan.

The firm has set itself a monthly sales target of 1000 units for the first few months of production, but orders in March have so far topped 10,000.

Honda said that half of the CR-Z’s buyers were new to the brand.

In total, Honda expects to sell between 400 and 500,000 CR-Z units per year. Sales in the US and Europe will commence later in the spring.

I think UK buyers like their power more.

I like it, though what is the rear wiper where it is? They should have at least taken a look at the rear of a C4.

Wow... ten times the demand! I've heard of double the demand but 10 times is a lot! Congratulations to Honda, I think it's a good looking little car and it'll probably sell well here too, there's a little bit of original Insight about it...

400 to 500000, am I the only one who thinks this is quite a broad margin??

Good. It looks like a really great package and I hope it pays off for them.
