Honda has unveiled the all-new 2024 Honda Prologue, offered as the brand’s first all-electric SUV and estimated to return up to 300 miles of range per charge. The new Prologue is underpinned by GM electric vehicle technology, including GM Ultium Drive motors and a GM Ultium battery pack. When it launches next year, the 2024 Honda Prologue will rival the Chevy Blazer EV.
Honda says the new Prologue presents a “neo-rugged” design that was optimized for low aerodynamic drag, with wheel sizing up to 21 inches in diameter. The wheelbase is 121.8 inches long, while the overall length and overall width are 8 inches longer and 5 inches wider, respectively, than the Honda CR-V.
U.S. customers will have three trim levels total to choose from, including EX, Touring, and Elite. Google built-in, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, are all included as standard. An 11-inch digital instrument display and an 11.3-inch HD touchscreen are standard as well.
Safety tech items include Rear Cross Traffic Braking, Blind Zone Steering Assist, and Rear Pedestrian Alert. There’s also up to 136.9 cubic feet of interior space, and up to 25.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats.
Although the 2024 Honda Prologue is based on a GM platform, the multi-link front and rear suspension was tuned by Honda engineers. Two powertrain options will be available, including a single, front-mounted electric motor, or a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive layout. The 2024 Honda Prologue includes DC quick-charge capabilities up to 155 kW, recharging the 85 kWh lithium-ion battery with 65 miles of range in roughly 10 minutes. Maximum output is rated at 288 horsepower and 333 pound-feet of torque with the dual-motor configuration. Honda will also offer customers at-home charging solutions.
Pre-sales for the 2024 Honda Prologue are set to open up later this year, with initial deliveries slated for early in the 2024 calendar year. Pricing is expected to “start in the upper $40,000s, before the application of any government incentives or tax credits.”
