Acura was on schedule to launch its anticipated RLX Sport Hybrid but after a technical issue, Acura’s senior vice president, Mike Accavitti, confirmed the model is delayed.

After speaking with Wards Auto, specifics weren’t disclosed by Accavitti, though he said that “it just hasn’t met with our expectations yet.” Speculation suggests there is a problem with the SH-AWD and the powertrain, especially since its a similar system to the one used in the Acura NSX Prototype, which recently caught fire.

Due to the delay, the RLX Sport Hybrid is delayed until next month.
