HONDA PROLOGUE 2024: THE START OF A NEW ERA
By Daniel Rufiange
Honda is a little late in the race for electrification, but it’s about to make its debut with a promising vehicle, the Prologue. The latter is the result of a collaboration with General Motors (GM). In fact, the SUV that will bear the HONDA logo and letters benefits from the Ultium structure developed by GM.
Electrification is expensive, and for a manufacturer like Honda, partnerships like this are a gold mine. That said, as early as 2025, the Japanese manufacturer will be suggesting a second electric vehicle, this time assembled on its own platform, named e: Architecture.
As for the Prologue, it’s 200 mm longer and 125 mm wider than the CR-V. It is less tall, however, and offers less cargo volume. Its range will be at least 450 km, and all three configurations on the menu—EX, EX-L and Touring—will offer all-wheel drive.
The Prologue is expected to hit the market in the coming year, with an introductory price of just under $60,000.
