I was surprised to see that the CVT will have 7 "gears" as in the Insight. I could have sworn I read that it will be only 5. However, I did some searching on the internet, and this is what I found:

Automobile Magazine, January 2010

4) In addition to the unique powertrain controller which offers up normal, economical, and sport driving modes, CVT equipped CR-Zs will have four distinct gear ratios available via paddle shifters. Why four instead of the Insight's seven ratios? Honda says it determined that four ratios provide simpler shift logic and just work better with the performance characteristics of the CR-Z. We say, fewer ratios probably made downshifts more substantial and, thus, sporty feeling - but we won't know until we try for ourselves.

So, was this information true at one time? If so, why the last minute change from 4 simulated gears to 7? Or maybe this was just misinformation all along.
