Acura ADX 2024 Release Date, Redesign, Price

Acura ADX 2024 Release Date, Redesign, Price – Acura has recently introduced several intriguing vehicles to drive fans, culminating with the Integra, which will arrive next year. However, Honda’s luxury brand is not only focused on reclaiming its performance heritage; it also intends to expedite the electrification of its lineup.

Indeed, it intends to steer parent company Honda Motor Co away from combustion engines by bypassing the hybrid phase currently underway at the Honda brand and going all-in on pure electric vehicles. Emile Korkor, assistant vice president of Acura national sales, explained this to Automotive News.

Acura’s first electric vehicle, an as-yet-unnamed crossover, is scheduled to debut in 2024 due to Honda’s collaboration with General Motors, which will supply the Ultium platform. Honda will also offer its version of the electric crossover, dubbed Prologue.

Apart from their shared Ultium chassis and brand-specific appearance, nothing is known about Acura’s impending electric crossover and its Honda-badged sibling.

Ultium

While Honda expects to introduce EVs alongside hybrids, Acura intends to accelerate the adoption of battery-electric vehicles. For instance, the previous edition of the MDX crossover offered a hybrid powertrain. Still, the current model, introduced earlier this year, does not. acura adx 2024

Additionally, GM intends to construct an Ultium Cells battery manufacturing facility in Spring Hill, Tennessee. Ultium Cells is joint venture between General Motors and LG Energy Solutions that focuses on developing new Ultium Battery Packs. This factory is anticipated to begin producing battery packs in late 2023. Acura SUV production is scheduled to start in 2024 and will utilize Ultium Battery Cells made at the new manufacturing plant.

The Ultium platform is adaptable to various vehicle types, including tiny cars, mid-size crossovers, sedans, large pickup trucks, and SUVs. The GMC Hummer EV is a modern example of this platform. Ultium battery packs can operate at a voltage of up to 800 V and a capacity of 200 KWh. Additionally, they support 350 KW fast charging and range up to 400 miles. acura adx 2024

Facility

GM will manufacture the all-electric Honda SUV at its Ramos Arizpe Assembly factory in Mexico. Only the Chevrolet Blazer and Chevrolet Equinox are manufactured at this plant. Honda’s all-electric SUV could be dubbed the Honda Prologue. The Honda Prologue will be less expensive than the Cadillac Lyriq and will employ entirely GM-sourced components. Honda will design both the appearance and inside of the Honda Prologue SUV.

Honda and GM have also partnered in North America on platform and powertrain sharing, research and development, buying, and linked services. Additionally, Honda intends to incorporate General Motors’ hands-free driving technology into both of its forthcoming vehicles. Honda successfully introduced Level 3 Autonomous Driving, dubbed Honda Sensing Elite, on its Japan-exclusive Legend car, previously known as the Acura RLX. acura adx 2024

Sales and Release Date

Honda’s goal for the North American market is for EVs and FCEVs to account for roughly 40% of sales by 2030. It intends to expand that figure to 80 percent by 2035 and convert its whole fleet to EVs and FCEVs by 2040. Honda aims to sell over 500,000 electric vehicles in North America by 2030. Acura, like its parent company, will pursue a fully electrified lineup. Honda also intends to build its electric vehicle architecture in the second part of the decade, when the market is entirely prepared to embrace them. acura adx 2024
