Honda Prologue: What is it?
The Prologue is built on the GM Ultium platform, which also underpins electric SUVs such as the Cadillac Lyriq, Chevrolet Blazer and GMC Hummer. Honda calls the Prologue a “neo-rugged” SUV.
The Prologue’s wheelbase is 203 mm longer and 127 mm wider than the new Honda CR-V. The SUV rides on 21-inch wheels and the nose is inspired by the Honda e city electric car as it features a large black stripe.
At the back, the Honda logo gives way to the full brand name and also includes the “e:” series emblem. Prologue offers a unique paint called North Shore Pearl, inspired by “the beauty and colors of nature near Lake Tahoe, California.”
Inside, an 11.3-inch central touchscreen is joined by an 11-inch digital instrument display, with interior colors inspired by mountain snow. The Prologue will be Honda’s key model in the United States as the country phase out new diesel cars by 2025 and new gasoline cars by 2030.
Powertrain details have yet to be announced, but they’re likely to match the Blazer’s specs, with a range of up to 510km and a charging speed of up to 190kW.
