The Acura ZDX Production Model Will be Heavily Inspired by the Precision Concept

The GM-Honda co-developed Acura ZDX should also share some components with the Cadillac Lyriq


  • The Precision concept was revealed last August.

  • It shares a number of design cues from the Honda Prologue.


The Acura ZDX is being co-developed with GM and will use its global EV platform powered by Ultium battery packs. Acura first revealed the fact that the ZDX name will return in the near future as a premium electric SUV last August.

Acura Precision EV Concept Previews Brand’s Design Direction

Based on the images shared by Automotive News, the new Acura ZDX looks to borrow heavily from the Precision Concept. The front end resembles to the Precision EV concept as does the SUV’s overall profile. The story also states that it shares some structural elements with Cadillac’s Lyriq electric crossover which makes sense. Hints of the recently unveiled Honda Prologue can also be seen in the ZDX.

Neither Honda nor Acura have disclosed Prologue or ZDX dimensions although it seems clear that the concept and prototype share a footprint with the MDX midsize crossover far more that the slightly more compact RDX crossover. Once more, the Lyriq is also closer to midsize than compact

2023 Cadillac Lyriq First Drive Review: Making a Statement

Given the similarities between the Acura ZDX and Cadillac Lyriq, it’s likely that the two vehicles will share some powertrain components. We can therefore assume that both single-motor and twin-motor layouts, with roughly 340hp for the RWD model, are a very real possibility. The same goes for the 100kWh battery and the 502km EV range.

Acura has not yet released any concrete information on pricing, availability, or where it will be built, but we assume the ZDX’s pricing will start between $70,000 and $75,000 for the base model.
