NSX is the first supercar powered by a bespoke Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™, 573-hp66 power unit that is an absolute game-changer. Engine power and direct electric torque combine for a new kind of dynamic performance, not just in acceleration, but in steering and braking too.
DIRECT DRIVE MOTOR
Think of it as throttle response deluxe. Sandwiched between the V-6 and the DCT, the direct drive electric motor is attached directly to the driveshaft for immediate torque and acceleration.
Intelligent Power Unit. The brain of the power unit is also its primary battery. Positioned low and center, it sits behind the seats, directing energy to electric motors front and rear.
TWIN MOTOR UNIT
G-loading you can feel comes from two independent electric motors at the front wheels that deal out immediate torque on the move for athletic acceleration that makes passing absolutely effortless.
SPORT HYBRID POWER AT A GLANCE66
Sport Hybrid SH-AWD
In the corners, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen from Acura. Our revolutionary Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system is enhanced by an electric Twin Motor Unit (TMU), engineered to independently distribute torque to each rear wheel (front on NSX) for on-rails handling at the will of the driver.
The TMU creates torque vectoring, which automatically generates turning force, putting positive torque on the outside wheel and negative torque on the inside wheel – converting power distribution into unprecedented control.
Sport Hybrid SH-AWDTM is a top automotive technology that gives you a trifecta of quicker acceleration, improved handling and greater fuel efficiency, unleashing revolutionary power with a tenacious grip.
It All Comes Together
Every Acura Sport Hybrid is designed for an exacting balance of next-gen exhilaration and luxury comfort. Powered by NSX technology, you get instant gratification, confidence in handling, fuel efficiency and all-wheel drive weather stability. Interior refinements and remarkable quiet complete the experience.
