Default BYE BYE to Acura RL, Acura Legend globally and Civic in JP

From AB

Word coming from Japan's Nikkei business daily (as reported by
Reuters) indicates that Honda has finally decided to discontinue the
slow selling Acura RL and its Japanese market counterpart, the Honda
Legend.

Ostensibly the flagship of Acura's brand here in North America, the RL
has been a slow-seller for quite some time, upstaged in part by the
company's less-expensive, higher-volume TL sedan. For some years now,
the TL has offered more space, similar tech and even more power (in
the Type S model), making the RL a particularly tough sell for
dealers. Through the first half of this year, only 872 RLs have been
sold in the United States.

Another production change reported by the Nikke that would only affect
the Japanese market is the discontinuation of conventional gasoline
versions of the Civic. If accurate, that would mean that from now
until at least until the next-generation Civic arrives in the Fall of
2011, Honda will only sell the Civic hybrid in its home market.

In addition, the JDM Elysion minivan is also apparently set to get the
axe.
