Acura NSX EV Concept Ready to Tackle Pikes Peak
  • Acura’s NSX-Inspired EV Concept NSX Features World’s First All-Electric, 4-Motor SH-AWD Powertrain
  • Go into production in 2017

Acura has come up with a four motor EV in the shape of an NSX. This all-electric, NSX-inspired EV Concept in the Electric Modified Class will hit the road at the 2016 Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Many of us were eagerly waiting for Acura’s Next generation NSX. The wait has finally finished as we have brought the news about NSX which is going to go in production in 2017. The car however will be seen racing at an event before it goes into production. Acura will race a highly modified version of NSX in the Pikes Peak hill climb event which is going to be held on June 26th. 

This motor will support the EV concept. Its power will be fueled by four electric motors. One motor will work for one wheel. Thus making four motors for the four wheels. The look of this car is pretty similar to an ordinary NSX but this one is a customized EV drive train.

The company hasn’t shared any information about the power all of these motors will make for the car. However they have said that this car will have “four-wheel torque vectoring”. It means that, with proper mechanics and design, this car will be able to pump power like that of a racing car for sure. "We've been tuning the car for several weeks at Pikes and have advanced its performance significantly," said Tetsuya Yamano. "We're honored to be running at Pikes in this historical, anniversary year – an event respected by racing fans all over the world."

Electric vehicles are ideal for the events like Pike Peak. These vehicles are not effected by all the alleviation, which in this case is about 14,000 feet. At this range the gas powered engines have trouble moving in a steady speed. 

Acura’s NSX EV will be available for sale in the year 2017. Its initial asking price is set to be $150,000. It will support a turbocharged 500hp V6 engine. Along with the four motor, it will have three smaller electric motors to boost up acceleration. This will give the car an excellent acceleration which will be pretty difficult to beat.
