Honda showcases its first electric SUV ahead of its Global launch

As part of its push toward electrification, Honda has launched the Prologue, its first widely available completely electric SUV. In conjunction with General Motors, it was created. Prologue is built on GM’s Ultium platform, which is also used by other electric SUVs such the GMC Hummer, Cadillac Lyriq, and Chevrolet Blazer.

In North America, the Honda Prologue electric SUV will first go on sale around 2024. One of the primary USPs will be versatility, with the ability to be used for both weekend trips and daily commuting. Honda will make sure that the Prologue electric SUV’s performance characteristics are on par with those of its current lineup of ICE-based SUVs.

The Prologue SUV has “neo-rugged style,” according to Honda. The Honda design team in Los Angeles conceptualised the SUV. The SUV’s current style and performance in both on- and off-road situations will mirror each other. A prominent black bar at the front, sleek LED headlamps, top-mounted LED DRLs, a sizable faux air dam, and vertically stacked fog lamp housing are some of the vehicle’s standout characteristics.

Large 21-inch wheels and a lengthy wheelbase give the side profile an air of grandeur. The Prologue’s wheelbase is 203 mm longer and 127 mm wider than that of the new Honda CR-V. Smooth curves can be found on the door panels, and a striking black colour is used for the SUV’s cladding. The colour of Prologue will be an exclusive North Shore Pearl, which draws inspiration from the natural beauty of California’s Lake Tahoe.

Prologue receives a “Honda” badge with stylised text at the back. Additionally, it receives the e: series name badging that will appear on all of Honda’s next electric vehicles. Wide black bar, linear-styled taillights, and a skid plate with a metallic finish are further standout characteristics.

Although the Honda Prologue’s powertrain specifications have not been made public, they might be comparable to those of the Chevrolet Blazer EV.

The projected range of Blazer is up to 320 miles (approx. 515 km). It produces a maximum of 557 horsepower and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. Autonomous emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, front collision alert, and auto high beams are anticipated to be added to the Honda Prologue.

Honda wants to sell 2 million EVs worldwide by the year 2030. By 2040, Honda wants to sell only zero-emission vehicles in North America. Honda will invest 5 trillion yen in electrification and related software technologies over the next ten years.
