According to Acura's vice president of sales Dick Colliver during the Chicaco Auto Show, their company doesn't have any plans for hybrid models for its current and future products. Colliver said that hybrid powertrains are not suitable for larger vehicles and hybridization works better for smaller cars. He also added that they have no plans in selling compact vehicles.
Although Acura's sales last year 2007 were down by 10.5 percent to 180,104 units, Colliver remains hopeful that Acura sales this year will be up by at least 200,000 units.
Colliver said, "We get the TSX in the spring and the new TL in the fall. We knew going into 2007 that we were facing tough times because the product line was aging, and there was a lot of new competition. To compete with BMW, we must build cars in those segments. We need more crossovers and an image car."
Colliver admitted that Acura's top-of-the-line RL sedan "was the wrong car" as its sales only totaled to 6,262 in 2007. With regard to that, he said, "It is due to be replaced in 2010.
