After all, electrification has swept up the auto industry, making auto manufacturers in race against one another to create a reliable and punchy electric ride. Each of them is hoping that they can provide the best and the most popular options for the buyers, hoping to boost sales numbers to the highest point.

New Design and Platform
Honda has officially confirmed that an SUV (the all new and electric type) would arrive in 2023 as the 2024 model. This SUV would be constructed based on the Global EV platform (by GM) and it’s already set for the American market. Since Honda would create emission free lineups before 2040, they are ready to show off not only one, but two big electric SUVs. The pair would be competing against similar model, like Tesla Model Y. According to Honda Executive Vice President, Dave Gardner, the platform would have the combination of uniqueness from both Acura and Honda.
Powertrain and Performance
Many auto experts are hoping that this platform would be running on Ultium Drive (electric) motors and Ultium Li-ion batteries. The electric SUV Acura is said to be able to cover 300 miles to 350 miles of range. The Acura EV would be manufactured at Spring Hill manufacturing plant, located in Tennessee, the same plant to produce 2022 Caddy Lyriq.
The 2024 Acura MDX is said to release with other models from these two big brands. Honda Prologue, for a starter, would be the first one debuted for the 2024 model. Afterwards, the Acura SUV duo would follow. It is expected to take place in 2023. With this collaborative project, many have predicted that their future models would be just promising and good. After all, both are known for their technologies and abilities. Having the best of both worlds would definitely improve the auto industry to the highest level.
