The Honda CR-Z, the first hybrid car to offer a 6-speed manual transmission was the star of the show in Times Square during a promotional event that took over 3 city blocks.
Several models of the car were on display along a stretch of the pedestrian area on Broadway, and people were allowed to inspect the interior of the vehicle, and "test drive" the CR-Z via a virtual game.
In what was a Times Square first, 3-D technology was used to show a commercial for the car on one of the giant screens in the area.
This Broadway opening was witnessed by an estimated crowd of around 250.000.
