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.
