Honda’s New EV SUV Called Prologue

Prologue to launch Honda EV line

  • Honda Prologue to use GM bones

  • Will arrive for model year 2024


Honda‘s next SUV has a name. The automaker’s first new all-electric SUV for the North American market will be called the Prologue. It’s expected to go on sale for model year 2024 and will join an increasingly competitive segment.

The Honda Prologue will be a battery-electric SUV built on a flexible platform from General Motors powered by that automaker’s Ultium battery and propulsion technology. It will be followed in the 2024 calendar year by a model from Acura that hasn’t yet been named.

That Honda will be getting its electric bits from GM isn’t news, nor is that it will be built in Mexico by GM, but the name is certainly new. Honda says that it plans to reveal more details about the new EV throughout the launch on a special page on the brand’s website. So expect plenty of EV details to trickle out between now and 2023.

“Our first volume Honda BEV will begin our transition to electrification and the name Honda Prologue signals the role it will play in leading to our zero-emission future,” said Dave Gardner, executive vice president of American Honda. “The Prologue will provide our customers with a battery-electric SUV with the excellent functionality and packaging they’ve come to expect from Honda.”

Honda said in the announcement of the Prologue that it would be adding more hybrid systems to its core models to help bridge customers to EVs when they arrive from the brand. “We know customers who have a good experience with a hybrid vehicle are more likely to buy a battery-electric vehicle in the future,” said Gardner. “Our strategy is focused on introducing a higher percentage of hybrids in core models in the near term, making a committed effort to achieve higher volume leading to the introduction of our Honda Prologue.”
