As an update to the news that was announced in April 2021, Honda has revealed the name of its first series-production battery-electric vehicle (BEV) that’ll go on sale in North America in early 2024. Named ‘Prologue‘, the SUV will be the first of Honda’s upcoming series of BEVs. An Acura version is also expected to debut at the same time as the Prologue.
Both these electric SUVs will be underpinned by GM’s modular EV platform powered by Ultium batteries. However, in the second half of the decade, Honda is planning to launch a new series of BEVs based on a new e:Architecture, with development led by Honda; the batteries will still be Ultium though.
Our first volume Honda BEV will begin our transition to electrification and the name Honda Prologue signals the role it will play in leading to our zero-emission future. The Prologue will provide our customers with a battery-electric SUV with the excellent functionality and packaging they’ve come to expect from Honda. — Dave Gardner, Executive Vice President, Honda America
Honda is planning for a 100% zero-emission lineup in North America by 2040.
