The NSX gets a longitudinally mounted direct-injection V6 engine coupled with a single electric motor. The powertrain drives the rear axle through an all-new dual-clutch gearbox. The front axle gets two more electric motors that can vary the torque applied to each wheel individually – Honda calls it the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive).
