Acura ILX Hybrid launched on the Chinese auto market

The Acura ILX Hybrid has been launched on the Chinese auto market, priced at 328.000 yuan. Decent 2.0 and 2.4 liter petrol engines might follow later. The Acura ILX hybrid is imported from the US, it is based on the American Honda Civic sedan and therefore barely worth the Acura nameplate. Power comes from a 92hp 1.5 liter petrol engine mated to a 23hp electric motor. So what do we have here? A dressed up Civic with an unpopular drive-train for a ridiculous amount of money. Chances for success: absolutely zero. via: Autohome.
