Edmonton Acura EV Center

Welcome to West Side Acura, your gateway to the future of driving in Edmonton. As the home of the highly anticipated all-electric ZDX, our Edmonton Acura EV Center is redefining the essence of electric mobility. Our professional, engaging approach ensures that every visitor experiences the excitement and potential of Acura's electric vehicle (EV) lineup.

The All-New, All-Electric ZDX: A New Era of Precision Crafted Performance™

Arriving in 2024, the all-new ZDX marks Acura's bold step into the electric future. With an anticipated zero-emission range of 500 km and an astonishing 500 horsepower, the ZDX is designed to provide an intuitive, driver-focused experience. Its rapid charging capability means you can add up to 120 km of range in just 10 minutes. Coupled with the luxurious Bang & Olufsen® Sound System and A-SPEC™ styling, the ZDX redefines electrified performance.

Understanding EVs: BEVs, PHEVs, and HEVs

Our Acura EV Center is committed to educating our customers on the different types of electric vehicles available. Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) like the ZDX offer pure electric driving with zero emissions. Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) provide the flexibility of electric driving for daily commutes and a gasoline engine for longer trips. Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) combine a gasoline engine with an electric motor for efficient driving.

The Benefits of Going Electric

Choosing an electric vehicle offers numerous advantages, from reduced greenhouse gas emissions to lower operating costs. Electric vehicles offer a quieter, smoother ride and require less maintenance than their gasoline counterparts. With instant torque and rapid acceleration, EVs like the ZDX deliver exhilarating performance that must be experienced to be believed.

Charging Made Simple

Understanding the types of EV charging—Level 1, Level 2, and DC Fast Charging—helps EV owners make the most of their vehicles. Our center provides information on charging solutions for your home and on the go, ensuring that you're always ready for the next adventure.

Canadian Incentives for EV Buyers

Canada offers incentives to make transitioning to an electric vehicle easier and more affordable. These incentives include rebates for purchasing new EVs, installation of home charging stations, and even tax credits. Our team at West Side Acura is here to guide you through the incentives available to Alberta residents, helping you maximize your investment in a cleaner, greener future.

Canada's Electric Future - Powered by Us, Driven by You

In Canada, the push towards sustainable transportation is being supported by significant incentives for electric vehicle (EV) buyers, making the switch to zero-emission driving both appealing and affordable. The federal government offers up to $5,000 off the purchase or lease of eligible new EVs through the iZEV Program, complemented by various provincial rebates that enhance savings further. This commitment to electrification is bolstered by an ambitious partnership among seven of the world's largest automakers— General Motors, BMW Group, Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz Group, Kia, and Stellantis NV. 

Together, they are establishing a groundbreaking joint venture to expand the high-powered charging network across North America. This initiative aims to install at least 30,000 new chargers, significantly enhancing accessibility and convenience for EV drivers, and marking a significant step toward making zero-emission driving a practical reality for millions. This collaborative effort underscores the automotive industry's unified push towards a greener future and positions Canada as a pivotal force in the global shift to electric mobility.
