Prologue 2024 Looks Handsome and Simple, But That’s a Big Problem for Honda

Posted on
  • Honda has released the first images of the interior and exterior designs of the Prolog 2024.
  • The new EV crossover is a collaboration with General Motors and shares components with the Chevy Blazer EV.
  • The Prologue will go on sale in 2024 and will be followed by Honda’s other EVs in 2026 and 2027.

If you’re interested in the new Chevy Blazer EV but aren’t a fan of its styling, Honda will offer an alternative in the form of the Prolog 2024. The two midsize EV SUVs share the foundation, powertrain, and battery pack but will feature different designs inside and out, with Honda presenting a cleaner look compared to the Blazer as evidenced by new photos of the electric crossover’s exterior and interior.

Finished in a new color called North Shore Pearl, the Prolog looks clean and modern and should match the rest of Honda’s SUV lineup. It is larger than the compact CR-V and similar in size to the mid-size two-row Passport. Its relationship to the Blazer is only evident in its proportions, as the Honda appears to have the same short rear overhang, long wheelbase, and similar window lines to the Chevy.

Inside, the Prologue will feature two large screens: an 11.0-inch digital gauge cluster and a central 11.3-inch infotainment touchscreen. We were happy to see what appeared to be physical HVAC buttons and knobs below the display rather than touch-sensitive controls. Eagle-eyed readers familiar with GM’s lineup might recognize certain components taken from the company’s parts bin, including start buttons and doorknobs, but that’s not surprising given the collaboration between the two automakers.

The Prolog’s powertrain will likely mirror the Blazer EV, which is available in a variety of configurations including front, rear and all-wheel-drive variants. All that Honda has announced so far is that the Prolog will be offered with all-wheel drive, meaning that some kind of dual-motor setup will be offered. We suspect Prolog will offer a single-motor front-wheel drive setup as standard, with an optional dual-motor powertrain. Range figures should be between 250 miles and 320 miles based on the Blazer estimate.

Stay tuned for more information in the next few months as Honda releases more specs on the Prolog. There’s no official word on when production will begin, but it looks like the Blazer EV will start shipping much earlier than Honda, as Chevy claims it will arrive in summer 2023 and the Prolog is slated to arrive in 2024.
