The 2024 Prologue: Part of a Bigger Plan

Prologue is a fitting name, as it represents just the beginning of Honda’s move to a carbon-neutral future. The automaker vows to introduce 30 new models around the world by 2030, with a goal of selling 2 million units in that time. What makes the Prologue endeavor even more exciting is that it’s a partnership with General Motors, which produces EVs on its Ultium platform. This GM collaboration shows a lot of promise, especially since the Ultium battery has already proven itself in the market with fast charging, long range, and efficient cooling. That said, it’s reasonable to predict that the Prologue’s range will be close to that of the Ultium-based Chevrolet Blazer EV: as high as 320 miles per charge.

Prologue Basics

The Prologue will join Honda’s strong-selling crossover lineup, slotting between the CR-V and Passport in both size and ruggedness. Some photos of this upcoming EV have been released, showing it with a wide and confident stance atop 21-inch wheels. Its style mixes contemporary looks with an air of capability, with thin-line LED headlights punctuating a distinctive fascia, while Honda is spelled out in a modern font across the back. A panoramic glass roof lends a futuristic touch on the outside, and it will bring the outside world to enhance the ride for its occupants, day and night. Even the paint colors have been thoughtfully chosen by the design team, with tones and names inspired by beautiful locales such as Hawaii and Lake Tahoe.

An Elegantly Simple Interior

Inside, the Prologue reflects a similarly clean look as seen on recently redesigned Hondas such as the Civic and Pilot. In the center of the uncluttered dashboard is an 11.3-inch touchscreen for managing the vehicle’s infotainment system, which will most certainly include navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, and wireless smartphone integration – most likely wireless. A similarly sized gauge cluster will sit in front of the driver.

There are clues in these early photos of the Prologue’s interior that GM’s involvement goes well beyond the Ultium platform. Quite a few components, from the steering wheel to the climate and window controls – look identical or nearly so to those inside the Chevy Blazer EV. In any case, there’s no question that Honda will use high-quality materials throughout, perhaps with options for either simulated leather seating or the real thing.
