Honda Introduces Prologue SUV

Honda recently introduced the all-new Prologue, the automakers’ first all-electric SUV.

The SUV will be available beginning in 2024 with MSRP expected to start in the upper $40,000s, Honda said, and will have an estimated EPA-rated range of 300 miles.

“The arrival of the all-new Honda Prologue is a pivotal moment for the brand as Honda begins the transition to our zero-emissions future,” said Lance Woelfer, assistant vice president of Honda National Auto Sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Prologue is aptly named as our first volume Honda EV, a stylish, sporty and spacious SUV that will take us toward our vision of 100% zero emissions vehicle sales by 2040.”

Prologue is built on a new electric vehicle platform and multi-link front and rear suspensions optimized by Honda engineers. Honda will offer Prologue in both single-motor (front-wheel-drive) and dual-motor (all-wheel-drive) configurations with three trim levels – EX, Touring and Elite.

Two-wheel drive models are powered by a front-mounted single motor. Prologue Elite features standard all-wheel drive (available on EX and Touring), which adds an additional motor in the rear. This dual motor arrangement generates an estimated 288 hp and 333 lb.-ft. of torque, Honda said.

For recharging, the Prologue offers DC fast charging at rates up to 155 kW. Prologue’s 85kWh lithium-ion battery pack can recharge 65 miles of range in about 10 minutes, Honda estimates.

Prologue’s dimensions, including its 121.8-inch wheelbase, position the SUV alongside the Passport in Honda’s light truck lineup. Prologue is about 8-inches longer and 5-inches wider than the CR-V.

Standard features include the latest digital services technology and features with Google built-in, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Targeting IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and NHTSA 5-star ratings, Prologue comes standard with the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, including Honda’s first applications of Rear Cross Traffic Braking, Blind Zone Steering Assist and Rear Pedestrian Alert.
