The 2024 Prologue SUV has been described as Honda’s latest attempt at an Electric Vehicle after the failure of Clarity sedan and Fit EV.

According to reviewers, Prologue “arrived wearing a restrained look that doesn’t shout its eco-friendly mission.”

But the Prologue rides on a platform developed jointly with General Motors, and is powered by the same Ultrium battery pack already powering GM’s new EVs, including the Blazer EV with which the Prologue shares components.

A single-motor powertrain is standard and makes 212 horsepower but a dual-motor, all-wheel drive setup is optional and is good for 288 ponies.

The Prologue is featured with 21-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, and simple LED lighting elements.

EV Motor, Power, and Performance

The Prologue can be powered with either a 212-hp single-motor and front-wheel drive or with two motors that combine for 288 horsepower and all-wheel drive.

 Range and Battery Life

All Prologue models will come with an 85.0-kWh battery pack sourced from General Motors. The single-motor front-wheel drive model comes with an EPA-estimated 296-mile driving range, while the dual-motor all-wheel drive version will sacrifice some of that range for peppier acceleration.

All-wheel drive versions of the EX and Touring trims are rated for 281 miles per charge, while the range-topping Elite comes with a 273-mile estimate.

Fuel Economy

In terms, the EPA estimates that the most efficient Prologue models are the front-wheel drive versions of the EX and Touring trims, which both earned ratings of up to 107 MPGe city.

Infotainment

A check at the middle of the Prologue’s dashboard would present an 11.3-inch infotainment touchscreen. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included, as is an in-dash navigation system that uses Google Maps. It is also equipped with an 11.0-inch digital gauge display and a wireless smartphone charging pad; a head-up display also provided on the top-spec Elite trim. A 12-speaker Bose stereo system with tweeter speakers in the Prologue’s A-pillars is standard on Touring and Elite models.

Other safety and driver assistance features

All Prologue models are expected to come with a suite of driver-assistance features called Honda Sensing.

This package includes basic systems such as automated emergency braking and lane-departure warning, as well as more advanced tech such as lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and traffic-sign recognition.

Meanwhile, Honda recently announced that most all-new 2024 Honda Prologue models, the first all-electric Honda SUV, will qualify for the U.S. $7,500 EV tax credit.

The federal tax credit applies to the purchase of all 2024 Prologues built after Feb. 26, 2024. All 2024 Prologues will qualify when leased.

“Having the Honda Prologue qualify for the $7,500 EV tax credit is great news for our customers,” said Lance Woelfer, assistant vice president of Honda National Auto Sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

“The Prologue is stylish, sporty and priced right, hitting the sweet spot of the EV market and meeting the demand from our customers.”

Honda added that recharging on the go is quick and convenient with DC fast charging at rates up to 150 kW.

The 85 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is designed to recharge 65 miles of range in about 10 minutes using DC fast charging.
