Per previous GM Authority coverage, General Motors and Honda have been collaborating to develop several new all-electric vehicles, including the 2024 Honda Prologue and 2024 Acura ZDX. In the past, we’ve captured a Prologue prototype testing out in the wild, and today, GM Authority spy photographers came across another mostly undisguised Prologue unit.
This parked grey unit appears to be largely production-spec, albeit missing some key badging. More notably, we’re able to see a photo of the interior of this upcoming EV, which appears to mesh together both Honda and GM design cues. However, the Prologue will feature Honda’s infotainment system and, unlike the Blazer EV, offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.
For those who may be unaware, here’s a breakdown on the Honda Prologue. Heavily based on the upcoming 2024 Chevy Blazer EV, this by-product of the GM-Honda collaboration is likely to be more of a badge-engineered vehicle than a fully-fledged Honda design that shares GM’s electric vehicle architecture. In fact, judging from the photos we’ve captured so far, it appears as though the Prologue will feature similar exterior dimensions to the Blazer EV, although with adjustments made to follow Honda’s corporate design language.
In regard to drivetrain configurations, the Prologue is likely to feature either a FWD or AWD layout. Meanwhile, the Chevy Blazer EV will be offered in FWD, RWD and AWD configurations.
As a reminder, GM announced an investment of over $1 billion USD in the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico back in April 2021 to re-tool the facility for EV production, which includes the likes of the Blazer EV. With that in mind, production of the Honda Prologue is anticipated to take place at the same plant, while the Ultium-based crossover is expected to launch in Winter 2024.
