Default Acura to build Civic-based ILX in Indiana

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Plants/Manufacturing, Acura, Luxury



Though some have spread their wings to other markets, when push comes to shove, the Japanese luxury marques are targeted right at North America. That's certainly the case with Acura, a brand that only sells here and in China. Honda's luxury marque has been quiet in recent years, but it's readying a major product push set to launch at next month's Detroit Auto Show.

When the doors open at Cobo Hall, Acura will present NSX supercar and ILX sedan concepts as well as the 2013 RDX crossover. The latter will be a Civic-based entry-level luxury model targeted at the likes of the BMW 1 Series and Lexus CT 200h, will be available with either conventional or hybrid drivetrains, and will - as just announced today - be made right here in the United States for local consumption.

Final assembly will take place at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana (pictured above) in Greensburg, with the gasoline engines brought in from Honda's facility in Anna, Ohio. As such, the ILX will not only be the first-ever Acura hybrid, but also the first hybrid that Honda will build in North America. Follow the jump for the full press release.Continue reading Acura to build Civic-based ILX in Indiana
