What is happening
Acura will debut its Precision EV concept during Monterey Auto Week.
Why it matters
The concept showcases the brand’s first electric vehicle, an SUV based on the Honda Prologue and co-developed with General Motors.
The Precision EV concept will be unveiled on August 18.
Acura will show another flashy new concept car at this month’s Monterey Auto Week, the company confirmed Thursday. Called the Precision EV Concept, this show car previews Acura’s “future design language for [an] electrified era.”
We don’t have any concrete details about the Precision EV concept, but we can certainly pick up a few things in the teaser video above. The position and shape say that the SUV, which completely goes after Acura’s first EV, will be a version of the— an electric crossover developed jointly with General Motors.
The Precision EV Concept has a large grille that creates a cool light show, and the Acura logo is also illuminated, because of course it is. Otherwise, the front end of the concept doesn’t really seem to stray too far from the design currently used on the RDX and MDX SUVs, but we’ll wait until we see the whole thing in person. Who knows, the back end might be wild.
Acura usually brings a hot new item or two to Monterey Auto Week in August. We saw the production last yearand we got ours that would come back. Does Acura have another surprise up its sleeve in addition to this concept? We’ll know for sure next week.
