All-electric 2024 Honda Prologue EPA-rated at 296 miles; priced starting at $47,400

The all-new 2024 Honda Prologue, the first all-electric Honda SUV, will begin arriving in Honda dealerships in March, offering a 296 mile EPA range rating. Prologue’s Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) begins with the Prologue EX at $47,400 (excluding $1,395 destination charge), before the application of any government incentives or tax credits to leasees.


2024 Honda Prologue Elite

All Prologues feature a suite of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies.

The 2024 Prologue offers five trim variants ranging from the single motor, two-wheel drive EX entry model ($47,400) up to the Dual Motor AWD Elite at $57,900 (excluding destination charge).

Prologue is built on an electric vehicle platform with multi-link front and rear suspensions optimized by Honda engineers. Two-wheel drive models are powered by a front-mounted single motor with 212 hp and 236 lb.-ft. of torque.

Prologue Elite features standard all-wheel drive (available on EX and Touring), which adds an additional motor in the rear. This dual motor arrangement generates 288 hp and 333 lb.-ft. of torque.

DC fast charging is supported at rates up to 150 kW. Prologue’s 85 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is designed to recharge 65 miles of range in about 10 minutes.



Oddly no mention of this being a badge-engineered Cheyy Blazer - currently (pun intended) subject to a Stop Sale order due to software and other issues

Consumer Reports gave the Blazer a terrible "not ready fro prime time" review, so it will be interesting to see if Honda's special sauce can rectify some of the problems

At ~US$60K for the AWD model, this will make Hyundai and Kia dealers very happy. I can't imagine who would buy a Prologue - it is more expensive than the identical (?) Chevy Blazer, and in five years Honda will have moved on with some sort of US-produced EV to sell without having to pay GM all the profit. Honda will then dump the Prologue, making it (yet another) Honda orphan, and Prologue owners will have to go to Chevy dealers for parts and service

I expect all Honda dealers will be forced to take a Prologue, and told to to put it front and center in the showroom - "See? We DO have an EV!" and with strict instructions to NEVER sell it, because even at $60K they probably make no money. Any Honda/GM fanboys out there with spare change?
