Acura reveals 2024 ZDX prices, its first all-electric vehicle costs more than the Cadillac Lyriq

Entertainment

Acura’s first EV will begin rolling out in the US this spring. Ahead of its official launch, Acura revealed 2024 ZDX prices will start at $64,500 (plus destination fee). That’s more than the Cadillac Lyriq it’s based on. Is it worth the cost?

Under parent company Honda’s wing, Acura has yet to launch its first EV in the US, but that’s about to change.

Acura first revealed the ZDX, its first all-electric vehicle, in 2022. The electric SUV is based on GM’s Ultium platform, which powers the Cadillac Lyriq and Chevy’s new EVs, including the Blazer, Silverado, and Equinox.

The company also revealed plans to launch a “Type S” variant to carry its performance history in the electric era.

Acura also said the 2024 ZDX will be its first model with built-in Google and dedicated EV features. The electric SUV includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

After teasing the electric SUV for months, Acura officially unveiled the 2024 ZDX last summer. We also learned the ZDX would be available in single and dual motor powertrain options (plus the Type S).

Acura opened reservations for the 2024 ZDX last week, saying prices will start around $60,000. The brand officially revealed 2024 Acura ZDX prices Friday with an MSRP of $64,500.
