Honda Reveals 300-mile Prologue EV

Prologue is almost the now-logue

  • Honda’s first mass-market EV for North America arrives soon

  • Model offers 300 miles, sub $50k price

Honda has just revealed the production version of its Prologue EV. The first all-electric Honda in our market will get an EPA range of up to 300 miles and will start in the “upper $40,000s.”

The 2024 Honda Prologue will be sold in AWD and two-wheel drive versions, with Canada only getting the AWD model. The AWD model gets 288 hp and 333 lb-ft of torque, and Honda hasn’t released single-motor numbers.

Battery capacity is 85 kWh. That gives it a 300-mile range estimate. Fast charging happens at up to 155 kW, and an 11.5 kW home charger is offered to top it off more quickly when you’re not on the road.

Despite the Prologue’s GM Ultium system roots, the cabin is decidedly Honda. It comes with an 11-inch dash display, an 11.3-inch center touch screen, and Google Built-In. Unlike GM’s upcoming EVs, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard.

The Prologue is larger than it might look in photos. The SUV is about the same size as the Passport, 8 inches longer and 5 inches wider than a CR-V.

“The arrival of the all-new Honda Prologue is a pivotal moment for the brand as Honda begins the transition to our zero-emissions future,” said Lance Woelfer, assistant vice president of Honda National Auto Sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Prologue is aptly named as our first volume Honda EV, a stylish, sporty and spacious SUV that will take us toward our vision of 100% zero-emissions vehicle sales by 2040.”

Honda expects the 2024 Prologue EV to hit dealers in early 2024.
