Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (AT-PZEV)
To achieve Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (AT-PZEV)[1] status, a vehicle must be a Super-Ultra-Low-Emission Vehicle (SULEV), carry a compliant warranty on emissions equipment, have zero-evaporative emissions and include advanced technology components.

[1] AT-PZEV (Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle) models as certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are available in California and states that have adopted California Zero-Emission Vehicle regulations.
Idle-Stop Feature
The CR-Z is equipped with an idle-stop feature that temporarily turns off the engine to save fuel and minimize emissions. A green auto-stop light on the instrument display flashes to indicate when the idle-stop feature is operating. As the hybrid comes to a stop, the idle-stop occurs automatically on CVT models. On 6-speed models, idle-stop operates when the brake pedal is pressed and the shifter is moved to neutral and the clutch is disengaged. Engine restarting occurs automatically, as soon as the brake pedal is released.
Integrated Motor Assist IMA®
IMA® couples the i-VTEC® 4-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor. Although the engine alone provides sufficient driving performance, when additional power is required, a permanent-magnet electric motor mounted between the engine and transmission provides power assist. Together, the motor and engine produce 122 hp @ 6000 rpm.
