JAPANESE car maker Honda will use its luxury Acura arm in North America to campaign an all-electric NSX-inspired EV Concept in the Electric Modified Class at the 2016 Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, to be held on June 26.
The NSX EV Concept features a further evolution of the experimental, all-electric, 4-motor Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) power train that won last year’s Pikes Peak Challenge Exhibition class.
The supercar-inspired NSX EV Concept will be driven by Tetsuya Yamano, who campaigned in last year’s CR-Z-based electric prototype.
The NSX EV Concept is the ultimate embodiment of the all-wheel-drive Electric SH-AWD power train featuring a world’s first technology that enables four-wheel independent torque allocation. The Concept’s Electric SH-AWD power train produces three times the total system output of last year’s electric prototype and is mated to the NSX body.
