Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

Should I Buy the 2021 Acura NSX?

Like the original that was last offered as a 2005 model in the U.S., the current-generation NSX is the kind of sports car that can be used on a daily basis. The responsiveness and seamlessness of the hybrid system impressed us, but the car’s steering feedback and ho-hum multimedia system left us cold. Even so, the NSX turns heads as well as any exotic sports car.
