Honda is finally entering the electric SUV market with the 2024 Honda Prologue, a midsize crossover that combines a sporty driving experience, a tech-rich cabin, and plenty of room to roam. The Prologue is the result of a collaboration between Honda and General Motors, and it uses the same Ultium battery pack that powers GM's new EVs, such as the Chevrolet Equinox EV and the GMC Hummer EV. The Honda Prologue will compete with other midsize electric SUVs in the market, such as the Hyundai Ioniq 5.
The Prologue's exterior design is inspired by a neo-rugged concept that features simple and clean styling with strong horizontal lines and LED lighting elements. The front fascia features a distinctive grille that integrates the Honda logo and a light bar that can double as a battery meter, filling up with green light as the Prologue charges. The side profile reveals muscular wheel arches and a sloping roofline that ends in a spoiler. The rear end showcases a wraparound light bar that connects the taillights and a sculpted bumper with dual exhaust tips.
The Honda Prologue electric SUV will offer three trim levels: EX, Touring, and Elite. The base EX model will come with 19-inch wheels, while the Touring and Elite models will upgrade to 21-inch wheels. The Elite model will also have an exclusive North Shore Pearl paint color and a panoramic sunroof.
The Prologue's interior design is modern and spacious, with over 136.9 cubic feet of passenger volume and 33.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. The cabin is filled with excellent materials, such as leather upholstery, wood accents, and ambient lighting. The dashboard is streamlined and clutter-free, with most of the controls living on a large 11.3-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Google built-in. The Prologue will also feature a digital instrument cluster, a wireless phone charger, a head-up display, and a Bose premium 12-speaker audio system.
The 2024 Honda Prologue will offer several advanced driver-assist features, such as blind spot steering assist, parking assist, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and collision mitigation braking. The Prologue will also have Honda's Smart Charge system, which automatically determines the best time to charge based on electricity rates and grid conditions.
