The beginning of production for the 2013 Acura ILX

Production of the 2013 Acura ILX begins in Indiana

Yesterday, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana celebrated the start of production for the new 2013 Acura ILX – a sporty new compact luxury sedan that shares a platform with the Honda Civic and should help the Acura brand reach new customers thanks to a lower price point compared to the other current Acura models.

The 2013 Acura ILX and ILX Hybrid are built on the same platform as the Honda Civic sedan so it makes good sense that the ILX would be built alongside the popular compact Honda at the Honda Manufacturing of Indiana assembly plant. The 2.1 million square foot Greensburg Indiana plant is currently slated to be the sole production point of the ILX and ILX Hybrid while continuing to build the Civic sedan both for the North American market and for export to other global markets.

"Acura has a sparkling reputation and we are thrilled to build the gateway vehicle to this brand at our Greensburg facility," said Jun Nishimoto, president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana. "As the exclusive builder of the ILX, HMIN has a big responsibility. Our associates meet this challenge by working together as one team and today we are ready for our customers to share our pride in this beautiful new product."
