Today marks the global debut of Acura’s first all-electric model – the new 2024 Acura ZDX and ZDX Type S. With an estimated 500hp, ZDX Type S delivers on Acura’s commitment to Precision Crafted Performance with dynamic styling, class-leading premium technology and an engaging driving experience. The ZDX A-Spec, available in a dual-motor configuration will offer an anticipated 500kms of zero-emissions range.


Making its global debut at several premier events during Monterey Car Week, one of the world’s top gatherings of automotive and motorsports enthusiasts, the all-electric ZDX marks a critical step on Acura’s accelerated path to a 100% electrified lineup.

“This is a historic moment for Acura Canada as we welcome our first fully electric vehicle to our line up,” said James Marchand, Assistance Vice President Acura Canada. “The all-new ZDX is just the beginning as we accelerate towards an exciting, electrified era based on our unwavering commitment to Precision Crafted Performance.”

Acura Canada will offer the ZDX A-Spec in the dual-motor, AWD configuration. The 2024 ZDX A-Spec will be priced above $80,000. The ZDX Type S, the most powerful and best performing Acura SUV ever, will also feature dual-motors and AWD and will start above $90,000.

Pre-sale activities for ZDX in Canada will start later this year, with first client deliveries slated for Spring 2024. Interested clients are encouraged to contact their nearest dealer for information and details on reserving an all-new Acura ZDX.

Design and Technology
Exterior and interior styling was led by a team at the Acura Design Studio in Los Angeles, marking the production debut of the Acura exterior design direction introduced on the Acura Precision EV Concept  at Monterey Car Week last year. Low and wide with a sleek silhouette, long wheelbase and high contrast surfacing, ZDX expresses Acura’s intense focus on performance from every angle. Distinct design details include the evolution of Acura’s signature front fascia, with the brand’s iconic Chicane DRLs, Jewel Eye™ LED headlights and seamless Diamond Pentagon with an illuminated surround and 3-D embossed diamond pattern.

“As Acura moves into an exhilarating, electrified future we will continue to push the forward-thinking design and proportions of our products as we take full advantage of the increased styling and packaging freedom EVs offer,” said Dave Marek, Acura Executive Creative Director. “Embracing that creative liberation, our team was energized designing ZDX, Acura’s new modern expression of performance.”

Further bridging concept and production, the ZDX Type S debuts an all-new Acura color - Double Apex Blue Pearl, which also was previewed on the Acura Precision EV Concept. Additionally, the ZDX will be available in the Type S signature Tiger Eye Pearl, also offered on Acura TLX Type S, MDX Type S and Integra Type S.

Inside ZDX, the driver-oriented cockpit features high-end materials, premium features and expansive intuitive technologies, including  Acura's first integration of Google built-in  for seamless on-the-go connectivity. Standard across the ZDX lineup, apps like Google Assistant and Google Maps and more on Google Play, help deliver a connected, personalized and more streamlined driving experience.

ZDX features a combined 22-inches of high-definition digital screen real estate with a standard Precision Cockpit Driver Information Cluster (11-inches) and Center Information Screen (11.3 inches) with an intuitive touchscreen interface and wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibilityi. Google Maps can be displayed on either screen providing sophisticated route planning with recommended charging stations to optimize travel time. Google Maps also can estimate the charging timeii required to reach the destination and can initiate preconditioning of the EV battery when the destination is a DC Fast charging station. Battery preconditioning can reduce charge times, getting clients back on the road quickly.

ZDX is the first Acura model to feature the immersive, luxury audio experience of Bang & Olufsen, an iconic brand for audiophiles recognized for the creation of innovative audio systems for home and automotive applications alike. Standard on all ZDX models, the bespoke system has been engineered exclusively for the tech-rich cabin of the all-electric SUV with 18 speakers, including four in the headliner, 14-channels of amplification and a subwoofer to deliver powerful and sophisticated sound. (See Bang & Olufsen section below for more information.)

ZDX comes standard with AcuraWatch™, a suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, including Acura’s first applications of Rear Cross Traffic Braking, Blind Zone Steering Assist and Rear Pedestrian alert.

With the new AcuraWatch™ 360+ system, ZDX Type S introduces Hands Free Cruise driver assistance technology to the Acura lineup, enabling true hands-free driving under certain conditions helping to make long drives and commutes more comfortable. ZDX Type S also features the first Automatic Parking System in an Acura, which takes the stress out of parallel parking.

All-Electric Acura Performance
Built upon a state-of-the-art electric vehicle platform with a flexible battery architecture, a low center of gravity and near 50/50 weight distribution, the all-electric ZDX expands Acura’s lineup of premium, performance SUVs. Acura engineers have tuned ZDX’s multi-link front and rear suspension to deliver a premium driving experience with exhilarating performance and class-leading refinement.

As with all high-performance Acura Type S models, ZDX Type S significantly enhances every element of the performance driving experience, including acceleration, braking and turning, all without compromising comfort, refinement or daily drivability.

ZDX Type S will define Acura performance for the electrified era with an estimated 500 horsepower, height adjustable air suspension, performance-tuned adaptive dampers and massive 15.6-inch Brembo™ front brakes with eye-catching 6-piston yellow calipers. Drivers can customize the driving experience with multiple drive modes, including a Sport mode for maximum acceleration and response.

The athletic stance and proportions of ZDX are complemented in the Type S model by 22-inch machine-finished wheels, the largest ever for an Acura model, and wider 275/40ZR22 self-sealing tires.

Recharging on the go is quick and convenient with DC Fast Charging at rates up to 190 kW. ZDX’s 102-kWh lithium-ion battery pack can recharge over 120kms of range in 10 minutes.

Bang & Olufsen Luxury Audio Experience
Long recognized for its advanced audio performance, Acura’s new collaboration with Bang & Olufsen, the Danish luxury audio brand, will elevate the in-vehicle audio experience of the new 2024 Acura ZDX and the entire Acura lineup in the coming years.

ZDX and ZDX Type S will feature Bang & Olufsen’s latest 3D Sound Control and exclusive Beosonic feature and Acoustic Lens Technology. Bang & Olufsen’s intuitive Beosonic one-touch sound control interface will allow Acura clients to create a personal in-car audio experience with four distinct audio moods: Bright, Energetic, Warm and Relaxed. Bang & Olufsen’s proprietary Acoustic Lens Technology uniformly disperses high frequencies horizontally 180 degrees while limiting vertical reflections, improving the overall sense of space and realism for all passengers as they hear every note and every nuanced sound.

Brushed aluminum speaker grilles laser etched with the Bang & Olufsen logo further enhance ZDX’s premium interior design.

Convenient Charging Solutions
Acura makes it easy for ZDX clients to select, order and install an Acura charger in their home and to find and use available public chargers on the way to their next destination.

For Canadian consumers, an online Acura marketplace will be designed to provide customers with easy and seamless home charging solutions. The website will connect ZDX clients with a network of pre-vetted local installers through the support of dedicated Expert Energy Advisors, who will help clients select the home charging solution that best fits their needs. More information on how clients can order and install Acura home energy solutions will be available closer to on sale date.

For those looking to charge on the go, owners can use the Acura App to easily find and connect to charging stations nationwide.
