The highly anticipated 2024 Honda Prologue is set to make its debut in March, marking Honda’s first foray into the mainstream electric vehicle market in the U.S. As a midsize SUV, the Prologue combines Honda’s signature styling with the cutting-edge batteries and motors from General Motors’ Ultium platform. While Honda plans to release its own lineup of fully in-house designed EVs in the future, the Prologue and the luxury Acura ZDX are the result of a fruitful partnership between Honda and GM.
Powerful Performance and Range Options
Dealerships will offer customers the choice between two powertrain options for the Prologue. The single-motor, front-wheel-drive version delivers an impressive 212 horsepower, boasting confident acceleration and maximized efficiency. On the other hand, the two-motor, all-wheel-drive configuration offers an even more exhilarating performance with 288 horsepower. This matches the power output of AWD editions of the Chevy Blazer EV.
In terms of range, the Prologue offers between 273 and 296 miles depending on the trim level. Honda proudly claims that the EPA-certified figure of 296 miles is “best in class” among base models. However, it’s worth noting that there are similarly sized and priced electric SUVs on the market that provide even longer ranges. For example, the Kia EV6 offers 310 miles, the Ford Mustang Mach-E provides a range of 310 miles, and the Nissan Ariya impresses with 304 miles. Even the Blazer EV, which shares several parts with the Prologue, offers a longer range of 324 miles.
The starting price for the 2024 Honda Prologue is set at $47,400, offering exceptional value for an all-electric SUV. For those looking for additional features and amenities, fully equipping the Prologue may reach up to $60,000. However, it’s important to note that these prices do not include the mandatory $1,395 delivery fee.
As Honda’s first mainstream electric vehicle, the Prologue is poised to make a significant impact in the market. With its striking design, powerful performance, and competitive range, the Prologue sets the stage for an exciting future of electric mobility. While it may not qualify for the federal government’s EV tax credit, the Prologue offers a compelling package that is sure to attract both loyal Honda enthusiasts and newcomers to the brand.
