Acura is prepping fans for the full reveal of its upcoming ZDX electric SUV, which will happen on August 17 during Monterey Car Week. The company released this teaser image today showcasing a darkened image with the ZDX’s LED headlights peering out. A new light strip wrapping around the bottom four sides of Acura’s pentagon-shaped grille also takes shape in the teaser.
Both the standard ZDX and its performance-oriented twin Type S version will go on sale in the early months of 2024. When they do, the pairing will mark Acura’s first voyage into the EV market, a milestone made possible through a partnership with General Motors. The ZDX offerings, along with the upcoming Honda Prologue, are part of Honda’s collaboration with GM. Both vehicles will ride on GM’s Ultium battery platform, with the ZDX rumored to be built alongside the Cadillac Lyriq in Tennessee.
Nothing Like the Previous Generation
Acura previously previewed the design language of the ZDX with the reveal of the Precision EV concept at last year’s Monterey Car Week. Then, late last year, the company released camouflaged images showing the ZDX Type S. There’s a long hood and a fairly standard squareback SUV shape, nothing like the previous-generation ZDX, with its sloped roofline.
Assuming the rumors about the Acura bing built alongside the Lyriq pan out, we think the ZDX could feature the same 12.0-kWh battery pack and 340-hp electric motor powering the rear wheels. The performance-oriented Type S would likely receive the Lyriq’s all-wheel-drive dual-motor setup and more powerful 500-hp output.
