Acura NSX EV
Thanks to a new rendering, we can preview the upcoming NSX EV supercar.
Acura is going electric and its EV-powered future starts with the ZDX SUV. Debuting this year at Monterey Car Week, the electric ZDX uses a General Motors Ultium platform that gives it 340 horsepower and an estimated 325 miles of range in the base model, with the powerful Type S model offering 500 hp and around 288 miles of range.
With the arrival of the ZDX, and more specifically the first battery-powered Type S model, it’s safe to say that Acura isn’t shying away from performance in the EV age. Executives have all but confirmed the possibility of a new NSX EV.
Acura Vice President and Brand Officer Jon Ikeda, in an interview with The Drive from 2021, stated, “The first-gen was gas. Second-gen was a hybrid. There’s gonna be another [NSX].” Hopefully that pure electric successor isn’t too far off.
The Performance Electric Vision Concept, which the company announced at Monterey Car Week alongside the ZDX, is our best look yet at a proposed NSX EV. As Acura’s Executive Creative Director Dave Marek notes, this concept previews the “future of Acura Precision Crafted Performance in the EV era.”
From what we can see in these shadowy teaser images, the iconic NSX shape remains. The pointed front end has slim lighting accents that stretch the width of the bumper, with vertical headlights at each corner akin to Acura’s IMSA Prototype racer, and an illuminated Acura badge on the hood. There’s a matching light bar in the rear that extends across the bumper, with an illuminated ACURA wordmark beaneath it – all of it in a funky neon green lighting (which probably won’t make it to production).
