2024 Acura ZDX and ZDX Type S lineup and pricing overview

In early 2024, Acura will launch its first all-electric car model in the United States – the Acura ZDX and its performance version, the Acura ZDX Type S.

The manufacturer recently opened online reservations for the Acura ZDX and ZDX Type S with a $1,000 refundable reservation fee, ahead of expected spring customer deliveries. It’s worth noting that the ZDX will be sold “through a new multi-channel digital sales process.”

Despite the upcoming launch, pricing and specs haven’t been fully revealed yet, so we only have general numbers that outlined in August.

The Acura ZDX and ZDX Type Sjust like its more mainstream sibling Honda Prologueit’s based on General Motors’ Ultium platform, which means it’s also a cousin Cadillac Lyric and Chevrolet Blazer EV.

According to Acura, there will be two main trims of the ZDX family – the ZDX A-Spec and the performance-oriented ZDX Type S.

The Acura ZDX A-Spec will be available with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, starting at $60,000 (both). The Type S will be about $10,000 more expensive (around $70,000) and will offer a 500-horsepower twin-motor powertrain with all-wheel drive.

Exact prices are not yet known. We also have no input related to the $7,500 federal tax credit. In theory, a car made locally in North America, equipped with locally made batteries, should qualify for the incentive. but even GM’s Ultio-based EVs may have some “temporary” issues in 2024.

All versions of the Acura ZDX will be equipped with a 102 kilowatt-hour battery (same as the Cadillac Lyriq), compared to 85kWh in all current versions of the Honda Prologue.

EPA-estimated numbers aren’t available yet, but Acura predicts range will be between 288 and 325 miles, depending on trim.

As for charging, the on-board charger will likely be rated at around 11 kilowatts to fully charge the battery overnight, while DC fast charging is promised up to 190 kilowatts (in line with other Ultium 102 kWh batteries). Acura estimates that the base version should be able to add up to 81 miles of range in about 10 minutes.

Acura (as well as Honda) has announced that its Ultia-based electric cars will come with up to $750 in charging credit to use on EVgo chargers and 60 kWh introductory charging credit at Electrify America:

Initially, the Acura ZDX will be available with a CCS1 charging input, but in 2025 it will be equipped with a NACS charging port and natively compatible with the Tesla Supercharging network. A NACS to CCS1 adapter will be available for existing CCS1 compatible vehicles at that time.
