Meet Prologue, Honda's first all-electric SUV: Check features
Honda has unveiled the 2024 Prologue EV for the North American market. The SUV is the first jointly developed offering with General Motors. The all-electric vehicle utilizes the "Ultium" platform and battery pack by the US-based automaker and retains the Japanese marque's latest design philosophy. While the brand is yet to confirm the technical details, official images reveal a badge for an all-wheel-drive system.
Why does this story matter?
- While Honda has a bunch of hybrid vehicles present in the US market, the brand is now planning to enter the EV segment to compete against rivals such as Tesla and Ford.
- With the Prologue EV, the Japanese marque forays into the mid-size electric-SUV category.
- The brand's first-ever Battery Electric Vehicle is jointly developed with the US-based General Motors for better localization of components.
The EV sports neo-rugged styling with all-LED lighting setup
The 2024 Honda Prologue has the brand's neo-rugged design language and features a sculpted bonnet, a sleek closed-off grille, swept-back LED headlamps, bumper-mounted fog lights, and a large air dam. The SUV is flanked by roof rails, ORVMs, flared wheel arches with black cladding, and 21-inch designer wheels. Wrap-around LED taillights, a shark-fin antenna, and a skid plate are available at the rear end.
It is backed by General Motor's "Ultium" battery pack
The technical specifications for the 2024 Prologue EV are yet to be revealed by Honda. However, we expect the mid-size SUV to be powered by dual electric motors linked to a large "Ultium" battery pack.
The SUV features a panoramic sunroof and multiple ADAS functions
On the inside, the 2024 Prologue EV has a spacious cabin with a dual-tone dashboard, premium upholstery, dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, a head-up display, powered front seats, and a multifunctional steering wheel. The EV packs a digital instrument cluster and a large infotainment panel with the latest connectivity options. Passengers' safety is ensured by multiple airbags and a host of ADAS functions
