Honda has shared the interior and exterior design of its first all-electric SUV. The Prologue will be based on General Motors' Ultium platform and will be available in North America in 2024. The press photo of the Japanese, who until now were known primarily for their hybrids, shows a robust and elegant SUV.
So far, not much has been known about the Prologue other than that it will reach its first customers from 2024. In the current announcement, Honda says it wants to place an electric SUV above the CR-V and next to the Passport. Its wheelbase will be 3.09 meters, which is about 20 centimeters longer and 13 centimeters wider than the 2023 Honda CR-V. The full dimensions of the Prologue are: 4.88 meters long, 1.99 meters wide and 1.64 meters high. Honda is also announcing various engines, including an all-wheel drive version.
Optics are handled by Honda Design Studio in Los Angeles. The Prologue will get 21-inch wheels and a panoramic roof. The designers describe the lines as modern and confident, the surfaces as clean and simple. The front end is borrowed from the Honda e, and at the back, instead of the “H” logo, you can see the full lettering "Honda".
Inside, the Prologue will have an 11-inch driver display and an 11.3-inch audio and connectivity display as standard. The dominant colors in the interior are anthracite and light gray. Honda plans to announce more details about the Prologue in the coming months.
In mid-2021, the manufacturer announced that an electric vehicle based on the General Motors Ultium platform would be released.
