Acura Precision EV Concept Previews First Electric Model

Acura's Precision EV Concept has been revealed, previewing the brand's first all-electric vehicle coming in 2024. The concept will be displayed at The Quail on August 19th, and at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on the 21st.




The Precision EV Concept was penned at Acura's Los Angeles design studio, drawing inspiration from the "elegance, artistry, and harmony of form and function unique to Italian power boats." It appears to be similar in size to the outgoing RDX with a cleaner take on Acura's current design direction, featuring a wide, athletic stance and precise character lines.





The concept's front end is adorned with a lighting sequence that Acura describes as "theatrical," with an evolved version of the automaker's distinct Diamond Pentagon grille. There are also thin chicane-style headlights and taillights, as well as "Particle Glitch" lighting signatures on the front and rear fascias. This futuristic design theme is also used on the 23-inch wheels.





Moving inside, Acura's focus on performance is very clear. The F1-inspired dashboard includes a stylish yoke steering wheel and low seating position, with angular accent lines and unique lighting features. The cabin also showcases a heavy reliance on tech, with two separate screens for the instruments and multimedia. Sustainability was another priority in the Precision EV's interior, with recycled materials on the dash, milled FSC certified wood, and biomass leather seats.





There are also two separate driving modes, with each emphasizing the performance and comfort offered in the concept. Instinctive Drive mode highlights the Precision EV's driving verve with racing-inspired digital gauges and red mood lighting. Meanwhile, Spiritual Lounge mode does away with the steering yoke and operates the vehicle autonomously. It creates a "warm, calming experience" for the occupants with a fragrance system and underwater-themed animations.
