2024 Acura ZDX debuts with 325 miles of range and $60,000 price tag

Acura has been a bit of a laggard when it comes to the electric vehicle (EV) revolution, but the Japanese automaker has finally unveiled its first fully electric model, the 2024 Acura ZDX.

According to Acura, the ZDX will be offered in both single and dual-motor configurations. The base ZDX A-Spec comes equipped with a 102 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery pack. With a single motor, the ZDX boasts 340 horsepower and an estimated 325 miles (523km) of range, which slightly reduces to 315 miles (507km) in the dual-motor setup.

The ZDX supports DC fast charging at a rate of 190 kilowatts (kW), which is good enough to regain 81 miles in just 10 minutes of charging. To facilitate home charging, Acura has launched the Acura Home Electrification website, connecting ZDX owners with local installers for seamless charging solutions.

At the top of the lineup is the ZDX Type S. With a dual-motor setup and the same 102 kWh battery pack, the Type S delivers an impressive 500 horsepower, making it the “most powerful Acura SUV ever.” That extra performance does impact the range, which drops to an estimated 288 miles (464km).

The ZDX boasts a near 50/50 weight distribution, promising dynamic handling and agility. The Type S elevates this further, featuring an adjustable air suspension with performance-tuned adaptive dampers, 15.6-inch Brembo brakes with yellow calipers, and even an option for high-performance summer tires.

The interior showcases a driver-focused cockpit, featuring an 11.0-inch digital instrument cluster and an 11.3-inch touchscreen, powered by Google featuring Google Assistant, Google Maps with EV-specific features, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

The ZDX is set to start production next year, with deliveries scheduled by the end of 2024, with a starting price of around US$60,000 for the base model and in the range of US$70,000 for the Type S.
