Honda CR-Z Hybrid = 38MPG?

I just saw an article on the upcoming, 2011 Honda CR-Z. The CR-Z is a hybrid sport-coupe 2 seater that is essentially a 2 door version of the current Honda Insight. The shocking thing about the car is the 38 MPG. 38 MPG? For a hybrid? The much larger Prius averages 45-50 MPG. As the article points out, even the late 80's / early 90's Civic VX (100% gas) got 55 MPG.

Maybe this car is targeted to the speedracer types - but they won't be able to modify this thing anything near the way CRX's were modified. No nitrous, shaved heads, big pistons or any of that - not with the sophisticated hybrid system in place.
