The word

2010 Acura TSX 4-door

While the company hasn't officially announced the TSX as their first hybrid offering, unofficial reports coming from an Acura dealer and earlier promises by Acura to offer a hybrid model by 2011 seem to confirm it.

The TSX is similar to the Honda Accord, which is already slated to receive a hybrid power train, so the match seems obvious.

And so ...

Acura, being Honda's premium, luxury brand, has promised not to sacrifice luxury or performance in its hybrid models.
