Honda Shares Images and Details for the 2024 Prologue EV

Honda has dabbled in EVs, but its first mass-market model doesn’t go on sale in the U.S. until 2024. The Prologue will be the inaugural Honda EV for our market, and today, the automaker shared details and images of the new SUV.

Using what it calls a “neo-rugged” design direction, Honda penned the Prologue using inspiration from the Honda e EV. It’s positioned above the CR-V and alongside the Passport in the Honda lineup and is around the same size outside as its gas-powered counterpart. Honda hasn’t shared interior dimensions yet, but the Prologue’s 121.8-inch wheelbase is almost a foot longer than the Passport’s, which should afford generous interior passenger and cargo space.

The Prologue’s cabin features an 11.3-inch infotainment display and an 11-inch digital gauge cluster. A panoramic roof and a unique charcoal/light gray interior theme inspired by “fresh fallen snow on the mountains.” 

The Prologue doesn’t go on sale until the 2024 model year, but Honda sees an opportunity to prime buyers for the full EV experience with the CR-V Hybrid. The automaker says it will push a special two-year lease deal in zero-emissions states and hopes to increase Hybrid sales to account for half of the overall CR-V sales. 

Honda developed the Prologue with help from General Motors and will release a line of affordable EVs with the American automaker starting in 2026. Despite its sluggishness in moving toward electrification, Honda says it will introduce 30 new EVs globally by 2030 and plans to transition fully to electric vehicle sales by 2040.

    "Honda developed the Prologue with help from General Motors..." Talk about burying the lede, guys, though it's plain to see it's not so much "with help" as "Honda stuck a few 'Hs' on a Blazer EV."

    So incredibly sad and distasteful to see the brand fall even further from its 1990s engineering pinnacle like this. Honda has devolved to basically become another Nissan, albeit for people with much better credit.

    Well, it is not hideous which is new for Honduh. But rest assured, the typical owner will tailgate you even if you do speed limit and even if there are TWO lanes open to the left. That is what Honduh and Toyoduh owners do. Idiots.

      Still smarting over not having the beacon score to buy that Accord, huh?

    This looks really surprisingly different from the Blazer EV. It's more boring, but it's also more Honda, and for that reason alone it will be taken a lot more seriously in US markets.

    Seems like Honda is taking the same approach they did with their first SUV’s- rebadge models from other makes to dip their toes in the market before going all-in.
