Prologue lives up to its name in North America. This marks the beginning of the rapid expansion of Honda BEV (battery electric vehicle) models in the region and has nothing to do with current or previous Honda vehicles.
The Honda Prologue SUV will be American technology wrapped in Japanese. In April 2020, Honda and General Motors agreed to develop electric vehicles for Honda. The jointly developed electric vehicles will run on GM's third-generation global electric vehicle platform and Ultium batteries.
The third-generation Global EV Platform and Ultium batteries can provide EVs with outstanding capabilities, we're talking batteries with up to 800V and 200kWh battery capacity, up to 350kW fast charging, 400 miles range and 0 to 60 mph time of as low as three seconds. The Honda Prologue EV won't get the best of what's technically possible since it has to be affordable.
Honda will design the exterior and interior of the Prologue SUV. He plans to borrow only the main components from GM.
The company says it wants 40 percent of its sales to be electric and fuel cell vehicles by 2030, 80 percent by 2035 and 100 percent by 2040.
