Monterey Car Week will see the debut of the Acura EV.

The Acura Precision EV Concept showcases the company’s fresh design aesthetic ahead of its significant transition to electricity. The company is currently only showing off the vehicle’s nose, but on August 18 during Monterey Car Week, the entire vehicle will be unveiled.

A little more is shown in the 12-second video up above than in the teaser picture. The Precision EV Concept sports a blue lit grille with a mesh design in front of it, as can be seen from the limited piece that is visible. Additionally illuminated is the central Acura badge. The headlights are trapezoidal at the corners, and narrow strips protrude from them toward the middle of the nose.

There are arched apertures in the lower fascia. According to the video, there are also tiny, lighted components in this area.

There isn’t a lot more of the Precision EV Concept in the video. There seem to be elevated pieces near the fenders and beltline.

It’s unclear at the moment whether the Honda Prologue EV and the Acura Precision EV Concept are connected in any way. In 2024, that vehicle, which is built on the General Motors Ultium platform, will go on market. When Honda revealed its electric crossover, it said an Acura model was on the way but declined to give any other information.

The Acura EV’s production version is expected to debut in 2024, riding on the GM Ultium platform, according to past speculations. There are rumors that the Honda version will be made in GM’s Ramos Arizpe Manufacturing Complex in Mexico. Along with the Cadillac Lyriq, the Acura is said to originate from Tennessee’s Spring Hill Complex.

Honda applied for the ADX trademark in the US on December 22, 2021. Some people think this could be for the Acura EV.

More Acura models include:

The Acura and Honda EVs’ mechanical specifications are currently unknown. GM stated that the Ultium batteries would have capacities ranging from 50 to 200 kilowatt hours when they were first introduced. These vehicles have a range of up to 400 kilometres (644 kilometers). Depending on the application, the company uses large-format, pouch-style cells stacked either horizontally or vertically.
