This electric SUV will be based on GM’s Ultium platform.
Acura recently trademarked the ADX name.
Honda and by default, Acura, are late to the EV game. They will rectify this likely in 2022 as they should introduce a pair of EVs based on GM’s Ultium platform. One of them could be the Acura ADX.
While most OEMs long-ago announced plans to launch new platforms and technologies, Honda was all but completely mum on the subject. It was back in the fall of 2020 that Honda shared that they’d formed a strategic alliance with GM for future EVs. A recent trademark filing, according to Car and Driver, with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the ADX name by Honda could be a hint at a new electrified vehicle for Acura.
Last summer, it was revealed that Honda’s new electric SUV, the Prologue, would be assembled on the flexible platform from General Motors and powered by that automaker’s Ultium battery and propulsion technology. It’s a near-safe bet that the ADX will be the Acura version of the prologue.
Of course, we can assume that despite the ADX using Honda/GM powertrain bits it will sport its own distinctive Acura styling both inside and out. Honda’s deal with GM stated that two new EVs would be introduced for 2024. If the ADX is one of them, it could come a little less than a year away from now.
