Honda enters the electric era hand in hand with General Motors. The joint project involves the development by the Americans of two battery crossovers on their own Ultium platform: in addition to the Honda Prologue, it will be the new Acura ZDX. The Japanese side will be responsible for the design, fine tuning and a set of Honda Sensing electronic assistants.
The appearance of the car was created by the Honda design studio in Los Angeles. In terms of dimensions, the Prologue electric car is identical to the Honda Passport crossover: the length is 4877 mm, the width is 1981 mm, and the height is 1643 mm. One of the distinguishing features of the Ultium platform is the long wheelbase: between the axles of the Prologue is 3094 mm.
The concept is equipped with 21-inch wheels, but for the production car, smaller diameter wheels will certainly be offered for better driving comfort and range. Another stylistic feature is the inscription “Honda” on the trunk lid instead of the usual logo.
In front of the driver are two small displays by modern standards: a touch screen multimedia system (11.3 inches) and a digital “tidy” (11 inches). As with the Passport, there is no third row of seats.
The debut of the Honda Prologue in the US market will take place in 2024. In 14 states that support EV manufacturers, the next-generation Honda CR-V hybrid will be available on lease for two years, until Prologue goes on sale. According to statistics, it is the owners of hybrids who are most willing to change to electric vehicles, so Honda is confident that such a measure will help with the promotion of new items.
