Having officially announced the pricing of the 2024 ZDX at the beginning of the year, Acura says the first units of the electric crossover have now arrived at dealers. The Type S leads the lineup and is the brand's most powerful vehicle ever.
The initial MSRP saw the A-Spec single-motor and the A-Spec dual motor carry an MSRP of $64,500 and $68,500, respectively. The Type S kicked off at $73,500, and the Type S with the performance wheels and tires at $74,500. This made it significantly more expensive than its GM premium sibling, the Cadillac Lyriq, which also came with a $7,500 incentive to make up for the tax credit.

According to Acura, the 2024 ZDX qualifies for the $7,500 tax credit on all grades, and this is the good news mentioned in the title. As a result, the A-Spec single-motor now starts at $57,500 (MSRP), and the dual-motor variant of the same model can be ordered from $61,000. The Type S completes the family with an MSRP of $66,000. By comparison, the cheapest Lyriq starts at $58,590, rising to at least $$63,190 for the Sport.

Based on the same platform as the Cadillac Lyriq, Chevrolet Blazer EV, and Honds Prologue, the 204 Acura ZDX comes to life at the Spring Hill factory in Tennessee. The base model uses a single motor that drives the rear wheels and generates 358 hp (363 ps/267 kW) and 324 pound-feet (439 Nm) of torque.

The dual-motor version brings a second motor to drive the front wheels and enjoys a total of 490 hp (497 ps/366 kW) and 437 lb-ft (592 Nm). The Type S is also a dual-motor proposal, and it has 499 hp (506 ps/372 kW) and 544 lb-ft (738 Nm) to play with.

In addition to the extra boost, the Type S version of the 2024 Acura ZDX also features a height-adjustable air suspension, performance-tuned adaptive dampers, and 15.6-inch front brake discs with six-piston calipers that Brembo signed. The model rides on 22-inch alloys with a machine-finished look, has 275/40 tires on its feet, and can be ordered with high-performance summer tires said to further improve its performance.

Acura's electric crossover sports a closed-off grille with LED headlights flanking it, a charging port on the left front fender, a floating-style roof, and taillights that appear to have been inspired by certain Renault models. The cockpit is rather minimalistic. It is home to an 11.3-inch infotainment system with Google built-in features, an 11-inch digital gauge cluster, a Bang & Olufsen 18-speaker audio system, and a few other goodies.

The ZDX uses a 102 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that enables an EPA-estimated 313-mile (504 km) range. The battery supports DC Fast Charging at up to 190 kW. The automaker says plugging in the A-Spec RWD for around 10 minutes will give it an 81-mile (130 km) range.
