Acura wants to do it, but only the Honda mothership can approve it
Speaking with Nikkei Asia, Jon Ikeda was asked whether a third generation NSX was forthcoming. “I would bet on it,” he said. Ikeda also predicted that if the wager lands in his favor, “it’s going to be [all-]electric.” This falls in line with statements Ikeda made a year ago. At the time, he explained that the NSX emerges when parent company Honda wants to make a statement: The first generation was Honda’s vision for an F1-derived petrol-powered supercar; the second generation arrived as an affordable hybrid halo car in the age of gasoline-electrics. He didn’t elaborate on the third generation’s powertrain back then, but this time Ikeda was more adamant about electric power.
Part of Ikeda’s certainty, the article states, comes from global CEO Toshihiro Mibe’s commitment to electrify Honda’s lineup. Soon after taking the top job in April 2021, Mibe announced plans to convert Honda’s entire lineup to EVs and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2040.
