Acura debuts Precision EV Concept SUV

Acura has debuted the Acura Precision EV Concept, previewing the brand’s future design language as it prepares to enter the electrified era starting in 2024 with a new all-electric SUV.

The Acura Precision EV Concept features a theatrical lighting approach that previews an electrified powertrain through a dramatic illuminated evolution of Acura’s Diamond Pentagon grille, Chicane DRL signature and new “Particle Glitch” lighting on the front and rear fascias, the company says.

Inspired by the cockpit of a Formula 1 race car with a low-slung driving position, high-performance driver sightlines and a two-grip yoke-style steering wheel, the EV interior space features dual experiences – an “Instinctive Drive” mode that heightens the performance experience and a calming “Spiritual Lounge” mode during autonomous operation, Acura says.

Instinctive Drive uses racing-style digital instrumentation and red ambient and pipe lighting. Spiritual Lounge mode retracts the steering wheel, pumps “soothing scents” into the cabin and displays an “underwater” animated projection.
