Acura has unveiled the pricing details for its inaugural electric vehicle (EV), the ZDX, with the entry-level A-Spec rear-wheel drive (RWD) trim starting at $64,500. The ZDX A-Spec is also available with a two-motor, all-wheel-drive (AWD) option priced at $68,500, while the flagship ZDX Type S comes in at $73,500, with an optional performance wheel and tire package for an additional $1,000.

The ZDX shares the GM Ultium EV architecture with the Cadillac Lyriq, but the Acura model comes with a higher starting price. The Cadillac Lyriq, utilizing the same platform, offers a more affordable Tech trim starting at $58,590. In comparison, alternatives like the Genesis GV60 and Tesla Model Y have lower starting prices at $52,000 and $43,990, respectively.

It’s important to note that Acura hasn’t factored in any government incentives or tax credits in the disclosed prices. In terms of performance, the Acura ZDX A-Spec RWD boasts 340 horsepower, and while the exact figure for the AWD version hasn’t been revealed, it’s anticipated to be below the 500-hp powertrain available in the sportier ZDX Type S.

Charging capabilities are a highlight for the ZDX, with its 102-kWh lithium-ion battery pack capable of providing an 81-mile range in just 10 minutes using a DC fast charger. Acura is also offering three charging packages with options ranging from $100 to $750, including charging credits with EVgo and partner networks.

The ZDX features a touchscreen infotainment system with Google-built software, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto capability. Additionally, it introduces Bang & Olufsen luxury audio, replacing the ELS Studio audio system across Acura’s lineup. The ZDX Type S emphasizes a sportier driving experience with features like height-adjustable air suspension, performance-oriented adaptive dampers, and 15.6-inch Brembo front brakes.

Emile Korkor, assistant vice president of Acura National Sales, expressed excitement about the ZDX, stating that it symbolizes Acura’s commitment to a zero-emissions future and reflects their passion for performance in the electrified era. Deliveries for the Acura ZDX are set to commence in early spring 2024, and interested buyers can only make purchases online as part of Acura’s digitalization campaign.
