Remember when an ‘electric vehicle’ meant a glorified milk float with all the charisma and style of a washing machine? How times change. On the road we have the products of Tesla, the prospect of Faraday Future joining the fray on the horizon, and we have incredibly exciting electric cars bringing their own near-silent deliveries of badassery to the world of motorsport. Case in point? This angry little devil from Honda.
It’s rather unimaginatively called the ‘Acura EV Concept’, and you’ll have probably noticed it looks like an NSX. Don’t be fooled though: that’s just the bodywork. Underneath all that lies an evolution of the CR-Z electric vehicle Honda campaigned at Pikes Peak last year, with a pair of motors at either end and clever torque vectoring tech.
What’s particularly interesting is this NSX-lookalike is running three times the power of the old CR-Z EV. So it’ll be fast, then…
