Acura ZDX’s EPA Rating Reveals 2.6-2.7 Miles/kWh Energy Consumption

By automotive-mag.com 4 Min Read

Honda’s luxury arm, Acura, started selling its first all-electric model, the Acura ZDX, this quarter following the launch of the Honda Prologue.

The two A-Spec versions (RWD and AWD) of the Acura ZDX recently were listed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s website, showing range and energy consumption ratings. The performance-oriented Acura ZDX Type S AWD is not yet listed.

The ratings confirm the Acura ZDX A-Spec’s EPA Combined range of respectively 313 miles (RWD) and 304 miles (AWD). The large 102-kilowatt-hour battery pack mainly drives the solid result.

However, because the energy consumption on the highway is slightly lower, we guess that the real-world result might be closer to 280-290 miles.

Meanwhile, the not-yet-listed Acura ZDX Type S has an EPA Combined range of 278 miles. That’s probably mainly due to 22-inch wheels and performance tires instead of regular 20-inch (265/50 R20).

The Acura ZDX A-Spec RWD with 20-inch wheels’ energy consumption, including charging losses, is estimated at 90 MPGe or about 374 watt-hours per mile (2.7 miles/kWh).

The all-wheel drive version consumes slightly more energy—87 MPGe: 387 Wh/mi (2.6 miles/kWh).

These results are very similar to the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq’s ratings, produced in the same Spring Hill, Tennessee factory. Both models are equipped with 102-kWh battery.

Pricing

The Acura ZDX starts at a slightly higher price than the Cadillac Lyriq, although the Lyriq’s entry-level trim might not be as well equipped. The base version has an MSRP of $64,500 plus a $1,350 destination charge.

The model is qualified for the full $7,500 federal tax credit thanks to local production.
