But in the near term, the most important approach to cut CO2 emissions is expanding the use of hybrid electric vehicles. To increase the opportunity for more customers to choose a hybrid we must be able to meet different needs with family, luxury and sporty hybrid vehicles. We will apply hybrid systems which are compact, lightweight and affordable to a wider range of products in the near future.I wonder if it will be anything like the CR-Z hybrid they just revealed.

Took Acura long enough ... especially considering how active Honda was about hybrids back in the day.
I just hope that they really improve the IMA so it is not a repeat of the Accord Hybrid.
It's sad, but I'm actually worried that all the Acura hybrids are gonna be Honda hybrid rip-offs.
BTW, have you seen the Acura DNX?
They are saying now that the TSX will get a hybrid later this year ...
I read that too, but I'm not sure I believe it as this generation's TSX just started. If anything I would expect the next (3rd) generation RL to get a hybrid, which is expected in late 2010/11-ish. So I don't know.
