First Supercar Built in United States, the 2017 Acura NSX offers Power, Performance and Style

2017-11-27T10:56:59+00:00August 8th, 2017|Acura, Hybrid Vehicles, New Vehicles|

Determined to bring supercar to the streets, Acura creates the opportunity with its 2017 Acura NSX electric vehicle.

Developed by a small group of engineers in Ohio, 2017 Acura NSX is the first supercar built in the United States at Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. This original delivers unique power and style built for daily commutes and the curves of Santa Barbara highways. The 2017 Acura NSX brings excitement to the streets as this four-wheel-drive hybrid-electric car accelerates from zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds. The efficient 2017 NSX engine offers rapid torque vectoring, continuous thrust assist, a 3.5-liter dry-sump system, with a solid 21 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. Its roar is low, but rugged, coming from the sharp four exhaust pipe design underneath its exterior. Stop in at Acura Santa Barbara today and take a test drive of the 2017 Acura NSX.

Acura engineer boasts about the excellence in the NSX design

The 2017 Acura NSX has a rare style in its 75-degree V-angle and automatic rev punch that offers exceptional racing appeal. Michelle Christensen, Acura designer, boasts about the excellence poured into the NSX design, “…We worked closely with the guys in the wind tunnel in Ohio to make sure that every surface was tuned for aero, but also that it was in line with the styling concept: ‘interwoven dynamic.’” Check out this American built original at Acura Santa Barbara, where customer satisfaction is our main objective.

Latest technology in the drive that delivers a boost in the 2017 Acura NSX

While driving, this clever NSX model has sensors that monitor data through its computers and work together with its internal hardware. From the front motors to the rear tires, this full-bodied ride is masculine with upshifts that are smooth upon acceleration. Under the hood of the exotic 2017 NSX is a trio of electric motors—two on the front axle and one between the twin-turbo V-6 and the nine-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The front motors influence this NSX model through gear changes along with the rear motor that drives the V-6 engine to build to its peak psi level to 15.2. This smooth operation inside the 2017 NSX is one of many reasons Acura Santa Barbara is proud to be a factory authorized Acura dealer.

Enjoy Power and Performance with BMW iPerformance Electric Drive Technology

2016-10-10T12:05:40+00:00October 10th, 2016|BMW, Hybrid Vehicles|

BMW intelligent electric drive vehicles offer drivers the convenience of electric drive efficiency paired with the reliability and power of gasoline engine combinations.

BMW is proud to be pioneering the future of electric vehicles. Beginning with the innovative technology of the BMW i8, electric hybrid models are continuing to advance the future of efficiency. For example, the BMW i8 sports car hybrid drivetrain system won the International Engine of the Year Award in 2015 and has been breaking boundaries ever since.

Electric Drive Offers Maximum Efficiency

What sets the BMW iPerformance drivetrain apart from other BMW motors is the electric eDrive motor. This innovative engine motor is powered by a high-voltage lithium-ion battery that makes it possible to drive with greater efficiency without sacrificing power and performance. For example, features such as eBoost provide instant acceleration when you push the throttle, giving drivers the responsive performance they expect from a BMW luxury vehicle.

Intelligent Pairing of Gas and Electric Power

Furthermore, each BMW iPerformance vehicle is also powered by a 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine. The pairing of the gasoline and electric motor is important because the gasoline motor provides the ability to still traverse long distances, while the electric motor improves efficiency during the drive. This combination provides an intelligent mix of power and performance – giving drivers the best of both worlds. For example:

  • The BMW 330e offers 14mi per charge and 373 miles total range
  • The BMW X5 xDrive40e is capable of 14 miles per charge and 540 miles total range

So no matter whether you are heading around town for errands or traveling cross country for adventure, the BMW iPerformance vehicles allow you to optimize your performance and efficiency in any situation.

Cash Incentives Available Now

Drivers who are interested in learning more about any of the innovative BMW iPerformance vehicles can visit BMW Santa Barbara online or stop by the dealership for a test drive. Additionally, there are current incentives and special offers available for the electric drive and hybrid models including:
