Honda revealed the Prologue, a brand-new all-electric crossover SUV, last week. There have been rumors that the launch may happen earlier than expected since the reveal. However, Honda recently provided an update confirming that the SUV will make its debut in 2024.

The prologue is a partnership between Honda and General Motors (GM). Through the arrangement, Honda will be able to buy GM’s Ultrium batteries and drivetrain for its EV.

Both an all-wheel drive (AWD) and a two-wheel drive (AWD) powertrain will be available for the SUV. The newest Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) from Honda and other cutting-edge features will be among the additional features.

According to reports, Prologue is classified as a midsize SUV because it shares proportions with both the Honda CR-V and the Pilot. Additionally, even though Honda hasn’t yet released the official specifications, experts believe it will have the same performance metrics as the Chevy Blazer EV.

This Honda EV comes with a panoramic roof and a distinctive front fascia. Moreover, Honda has replaced the H-mark badge at the rear with a full brand name badge along with an e-series badging. The all-new SUV sits on 21-inch wheels and flaunts an exclusive North Shore Pearl exterior color which is inspired by the color near Lake Tahoe in California, informed the automaker.

Various reports state that the Chevy Blazer EV has a range of 400 to 515 kilometers, 300 to 550 horsepower (hp), and about 650 Newton meters (Nm) of torque.

Like its other contemporary siblings, Prologue is simple and beautiful in appearance. Long wheelbase, little overhangs, and big wheels are all features of its elegant design.

Honda already has two EVs in its arsenal — the Honda e: NS1 SUV (specific to China only) and the Honda e hatchback. The addition of a midsize crossover SUV will likely add more value to Honda’s growing EV lineup. However, given the potential features and performance, Honda Prologue may boast a price tag to match its size.
