As GM Authority has extensively covered in the past, General Motors is co-developing the Acura ZDX fully electric crossover, which is expected to be revealed in the coming months. Recently caught testing alongside the Cadillac Lyriq, the ZDX has now been spotted again, but this time around, it’s testing nearly undisguised.
New images show an Acura ZDX EV prototype that appears to be almost production ready. Despite the placeholder headlights and taillights – along with other omissions to select trim pieces – we’re able to gather a better idea of what the Acura crossover will look like, which appears to draw heavily from Acura’s Precision EV concept, while sharing the Cadillac Lyriq’s overall shape and dimensions.
In addition to the undisguised ZDX EV example, a second prototype was spotted undergoing testing. While this particular unit is covered in camouflage, the taillights appear to be close to production-spec, further alluding that development of the electrified crossover is progressing.
Although no official timeline has been revealed as of the time of this writing, it’s expected that the Acura ZDX EV will make its official debut later this year, possibly at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
As a reminder, General Motors and Honda formed a strategic alliance back in 2020 that signaled that sharing of common vehicle platforms. With this in mind, the upcoming Honda Prologue and Acura ZDX EV will utilize GM Ultium battery and GM Ultium Drive motor technologies, and ride on the GM BEV3 platform.
Production of the Acura ZDX is expected to take place alongside the Cadillac Lyriq at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee, while the Honda Prologue will be built at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico, alongside the Chevy Blazer EV and Chevy Equinox EV.
