Honda has revealed more details of its upcoming Prologue all-electric SUV today, with customer deliveries starting early next year.
The Prologue is a joint venture with General Motors, and will use the Detroit automaker’s Ultium EV architecture. The SUV – which is slightly larger than Honda’s current Passport SUV – will have an EPA-rated 482 km of range with its 85 kWh battery. That’s likely for the two-wheel-drive variant, and Canada will likely only see the all-wheel-drive, of which we don’t have range estimates as of yet.
Honda also says the US pricing will be in the ‘upper $40,000s’ in US dollars; again, we don’t have Canadian pricing, but expect it to be closer to $60,000 here. While Honda has been slow to the BEV market, the Prologue will be the first of 30 new EVs Honda will introduce by 2030, in a push for a fully electrified lineup by 2040.
Honda also lists ‘estimated’ ratings of 288 hp and 333 lb.-ft. of torque. A DC fast charger will give it more than 100 km of range in around 10 minutes. It will come in three trim levels: EX, Touring and Elite, with an 11-inch infotainment screen as standard that features Google Built-In with wireless Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The brand’s HondaSensing suite of driver aids is also standard.
