Honda Shares New Pictures of Prologue Electric SUV, Coming in 2024
After Honda teased its electric Prologue SUV in May of this year, the automaker has officially begun sharing more details about the vehicle, including a tentative launch date.
Honda unveiled its Prologue electric SUV at the Honda Design Studio in Los Angeles this week, set to launch in North America in 2024 according to a press release from the automaker shared on Thursday.
The electric vehicle (EV) is heavily inspired by what Honda calls a “Neo-Rugged” exterior and interior, featuring 21-inch wheels and a wheelbase of 121.8 inches — making it about 8 inches longer and 5 inches wider than the newest Honda CR-V.
“We are not going to wait until 2024 to attract EV buyers, because we see a natural progression for a CR-V customer to Prologue with its slightly larger size, larger interior and capable handling,” said Honda’s vice president of automobile planning and strategy at American Honda, Gary Robinson. “We will support that transition now by putting smart strategies in place with the CR-V hybrid, that will enable our customers to transition to an EV.”
The interior of the Prologue SUV has charcoal and light gray seat upholstery and trim, along with a tech-rich cabin including an 11-inch driver display panel and an 11.3-inch audio/connectivity display. The car is being co-developed with GM.
Honda says it plans to offer CR-V customers a shorter two-year lease term in ZEV states this fall. This plan will allow these customers to “easily transition” to the Prologue” when the EV launches in 2024 it says.
