Here’s how much the 2024 Acura ZDX will cost
- Acura reveals more details about its first all-electric crossover – the 2024 Acura ZDX.
- With two different models and a choice of single or dual electric motors, the two-row ZDX is slated to cost between $60,000 and $70,000.
- Prospective buyers can now make reservations only through the Acura website and will benefit from exclusive access to Acura-sponsored events.
Revealed during the marketing chaos of Monterey Car Week, Acura proudly but subtly announced its first battery-electric model – the 2024 Acura ZDX. Sitting in the Acura family between the RDX and MDX, the ZDX represents a significant step forward for Honda as a whole.
Based on GM’s Ultium architecture, the ZDX features a 102-kilowatt-hour battery regardless of model, though the A-Spec and ZDX Type S are significantly different. Acura says the A-Spec will produce 340 horsepower in a single- or dual-motor configuration, while the S model features 500 horsepower sent through all four wheels.
Range figures are advertised as up to 325 miles for single-motor variants or up to 288 miles for dual-motor ZDX drivers. However, price is just as important as range numbers, and the two-row ZDX is set to compete in a more crowded EV segment.
The 2024 ZDX A-Spec will start in the $60,000 range for single-engine models, and the dual-engine version will be priced similarly. While Acura didn’t provide specific pricing details for the AWD A-Spec variant, performance-minded buyers should prepare their wallets for the ZDX Type S.
That’s because Acura claims the Type S will start around $70,000, making it similarly priced to the Genesis Electrified GV70, Tesla Model Y, or Audi Q8 e-tron. But first-time buyers of the ZDX will get some special perks beyond driving Honda’s first battery-powered crossover.
Specifically, Acura’s Energy Key Card will be standard for ZDX reservation holders. This key card will allow prospective owners to attend national Acura-sponsored events such as the 2024 Sundance Film Festival and the 2024 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Acura will also offer three different charging packages, allowing owners to dictate their home’s charging needs versus general charging needs. With a Level 2 home charger, ZDX owners will benefit from a $500 installation credit and a $100 charging credit. However, a portable charging kit is also available and comes with a $250 installation and $300 charging credit.
If local charging isn’t a reality for your residential situation, Acura also offers $750 in general charging credits as an alternative. With 190 kW of DC fast charging available, taking advantage of public fast chargers can cut down on the time it takes to charge the ZDX.
All ZDX reservations will be made online through Acura’s new multi-channel digital sales process. Simply log in to Acura’s ZDX reservation page, select your preferred model, and pay a $1,000 refundable deposit. Acura says initial deliveries of the ZDX will take place in early 2024.
Notably, the ZDX will come alongside the 2024 Honda Prologue, another Ultium-based electric crossover. Pricing for the Prologue is rumored to start around $48,000, indicating the performance and luxury differences found in Acura’s ZDX. The moderate introduction of these two electric cars signals the true beginning of Honda’s electric future, and we’re eager to try them out.
