Monterey Car Week, once known only for fabulous collectible cars, is fast becoming one shop window for the design and technology of the future. Among the concept protagonists of this year’s edition there is certainly the Acura Precision EV, a SUV ideal that anticipates some of the stylistic ideas that we could expect from the company’s first electric vehicle, which will arrive in 2024.
The Acura Precision EV is a seemingly larger five-seat crossover than the RDX, the mid-size SUV already on sale in the House’s range. This is the second concept for Acura named Precision, the first was presented in 2016 with the shapes of a zero-emission sedan.
Like most of the latest generation electric cars, this imaginary Acura crossover loses the front grille in favor of a closed, backlit panel that aims to improve its aerodynamics. Looking at the car in its entirety from the outside, its design clearly recalls many of the current products of the House, especially for some relevant details such as the go front and rear.
Viewed in profile, the Precision EV concept looks almost crouched at the rear, almost ready to spring forward. This is an effect recreated by the designers thanks, in part, to the wheels from 23 inches and their swirling five-spoke design with pixelated inserts.
Acura claims the revised appearance of this SUV is intended to evoke images of a speedboat crossing the waves. Just like a boat, in fact, the satin silver bodywork below the “waterline” contrasts with the paint on the top, matt and named Double Apex Bluea shade that will probably become the characteristic color for the brand’s electric vehicles in the future.
Although the House did not show the interior at the public event, some photos released following the conference revealed a video game-style steering wheel and cockpit with red ambient lighting.
The interior trim of the Precision EV concept features certified wood FSC harvested from sustainably grown sources, while the green acrylic steering wheel controls, marbled plastic interior trim and aluminum instrument panel bezel all come from recycled materials. Whether such pieces will be ready for large-scale production by 2024 remains to be seen.
