McKinney, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/08/2012 -- On April 23, Honda Manufacturing began production on the new 2013 Acura ILX at a Honda plant in Greensburg, Indiana. Honda Associates and community partners were there to celebrate the first ILX rolling off the assembly line Monday morning as they were all gathered to mark its launch. The new Acura sedan will be exclusively produced at the Indiana plant.

The president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, Jun Nishimoto, had this to say about the exciting event, "Acura has a sparkling reputation and we are thrilled to build the gateway vehicle to this brand at our Greensburg facility. 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.”

The new Acura ILX will come with both gasoline and gas-electric hybrid options. Reports are that Honda will produce three versions of the ILX; a 150-horsepower model, a 201-horsepower model with 6-speed manual transmission, and the ILX Hybrid with a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine.

"This all-new Acura luxury sedan is closely linked to the future of Acura," said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura for American Honda. “…the Acura ILX is the gateway to the Acura brand.”

The Acura ILX hybrid version will be a groundbreaking vehicle for Honda as it will be Honda’s first hybrid car to be made in the United States, as well as Acura’s first ever hybrid model.

About time production has started, I think it's safe to say by now the first batch of Acura ILX'x are ready to go? Anyone know for sure if ILX's are awaiting delivery to dealerships?

I am debating on the Acura ILX but it would help my decision if I could physically check one out at a local dealership. Anybody know exactly when they will be at the dealerships. Itching to test drive one!

I remember reading an article on this forum that confirmed May 22nd is when Acura will start sending ILX's to dealerships around the U.S.
