Honda and Acura haven’t yet released an EV in the United States, but that’s about to change. The automakers have partnered with General Motors, and Honda’s working with Sony on a separate car project. The fruits of the GM/Honda partnership are coming soon, as the Prologue EV will be Honda’s first in the U.S., and the Acura ZDX is coming not long after. Acura recently released new information on the ZDX, including an overview of its updated tech features.

The 2024 ZDX rides on GM’s Ultium Platform and will feature Google built-in services. The setup brings Google Play features, Google Assistant, maps, and more. It’s the first such integration for Acura, and the addition brings enhanced mapping features with range-sensitive route planning and charging stop options. The SUV also has location-aware battery preconditioning that speeds charging. Acura also equips wireless device charging, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, over-the-air updates, and access to third-party apps via the play store. 

We're left guessing regarding range, power, and other features. Acura has confirmed that we’ll get a standard version and a performance-oriented Type S version, but details on other specs are thin. GM’s Ultium platform should enable long-range estimates and fast charging times, so the SUV at least has good bones to start.
