Honda has revealed the production version (pre-production version, actually) of the Prologue Electric SUV concept that was revealed last year. It is expected to go on sale in select global markets (including the United States) sometime in 2024; which means, we don’t have the full information just yet.
But in the meantime, let’s talk about the information we currently have at our disposal, starting with the styling. Speaking of which, the front fascia looks significantly different compared with that of the concept; the pre-production version looks a lot neater with clearly defined lines. The side profile looks just as clean; there are no unnecessary character lines or swoops or curves, and the same is true on the rear fascia. Speaking of the rear fascia, is it just me or it gives off Evoque vibes? But anyway, don’t miss that ‘Honda’ wordmark on that black panel.
Those 21-inch wheels look pretty sweet too. The Prologue will be available in an exclusive North Shore Pearl exterior color which apparently was inspired by the natural beauty and colors near Lake Tahoe in California. For anyone wondering about the dimensions, the Prologue Electric SUV is gonna be about the size of the Chevy Blazer EV. Speaking of Chevy, the Prologue EV is gonna be the first product to come out of the General Motors-Honda collaboration. The Prologue EV measures 192-inches (4,877 mm) long, 78.3-inches (1,989 mm) wide and 64.7-inches (1,643 mm) tall, with a wheelbase of 121.8-inches (3,094 mm).
On the inside too, things look pretty clean and not as oomph-factor-inducing as those of the Blazer EV, but I guess that’s the idea. You got a 11-inch driver display and a 11.3-inch central touchscreen (Blazer gets a 17.7-inch touchscreen). The rest of the things including the ADAS are gonna be the usual stuff we’ve come to expect from a car these days.
Honda is yet to share the powertrain details, but I guess you can expect similar options as those of the Blazer EV or Cadillac Lyriq. There are a few more EVs in the works, some of which are being co-developed with GM. Honda plans to introduce 30 new EVs globally by 2030.
