Default Acura ILX Hybrid discontinued for 2015 [UPDATE]

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Acura, Luxury



Earlier today, Acura issued a press release detailing its entry-level 2015 ILX range, but something was missing. Honda's luxury arm listed all of the information about the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter and 2.4-liter ILX models, but nothing was said about the Hybrid - a model that, when we reviewed it in 2013, left us utterly cold. But now we know why: Acura has confirmed to Autoblog that the ILX Hybrid will be discontinued for the 2015 model year.

The company issued the following statement to us regarding the hybrid's demise:
The 2015 ILX remains a standout choice in the entry premium segment with its combination of performance, luxury, refinement and value and is the top-selling luxury vehicle to younger buyers. Based on the stronger appeal of the ILX 2.0 and 2.4 models, we are streamlining the ILX lineup to better align with customer demand, Acura will no longer offer the ILX Hybrid starting with the 2015 model year.

Acura launched the ILX Hybrid in May 2012 as a 2013 model, and through May of this year, just 2,660 examples of the gasoline-electric compact sedan were sold. Moving forward, Acura will offer the ILX with either a 2.0-liter inline-four mated to a five-speed automatic, or a 2.4-liter inline-four with a six-speed manual transmission. Prices for the 2015 ILX start at $27,050, excluding $895 for destination.

UPDATE: Fear not, Autoblog friends to the North. Autos.ca reports Acura will continue to offer the ILX Hybrid in Canada for 2015.Continue reading Acura ILX Hybrid discontinued for 2015 [UPDATE]
