Honda gave the first look at the outside and inside of the all-new battery-electric Honda Prologue SUV, which will be sold in North America in 2024. The Prologue has a clean and simple “Neo-Rugged” look on the outside and inside, and it has a lot of space inside so it’s ready for adventures both in and out of the city.

Modern style with a neo-rugged look
The Honda design team in Los Angeles is in charge of making the new Prologue’s exterior and interior look good. A young group of designers set out to make an SUV that looked clean and simple and was new and modern. The design style was called “neo-rugged,” and it brought the harmony of nature’s elements to the outside and inside of Prologue. Details like the panoramic roof and big 21-inch wheels, which give the model a strong and stable look, show how this design direction was followed. The unique exterior of the groundbreaking Honda e EV model was used as a model for the front fascia.
The exterior of the Prologue will come in a unique colour called North Shore Pearl. This colour was inspired by the colours and beauty of nature near Lake Tahoe in California. Also, the unique charcoal and light grey interior colour was inspired by the sight of fresh snow falling on the mountains.
Masaki Sumimoto, the design lead for the Color, Materials, and Finish, said, “Our goal was to create a clean harmony based on a rugged SUV image. We did this by coordinating the colours and materials to show a neo-rugged design style that is familiar to our customers and very Honda.”
To build the Honda EV brand even more, the “H-mark” badge on the back of the car is replaced with the full Honda brand name in a stylized typeface that matches the sleek and modern look of the Prologue. In order to match the rest of Honda’s EVs around the world, the Prologue will use the brand’s e: series name.
Prologue Well-placed in Honda’s line of light trucks
Prologue was made to look modern and fresh, so it will fit in with other Honda SUVs in the showroom. The Prologue SUV joins the Passport in Honda’s line of light trucks because it is big and has a big interior. The Prologue will have a wheelbase of 121.8 inches and be about 8 inches longer and 5 inches wider than the all-new 2023 Honda CR-V.
The inside of the Prologue will be big, so there will be plenty of room for passengers and cargo. The Prologue will have a high-tech cabin with an 11-inch fully digital driver display panel and an 11.3-inch audio/connectivity display that come as standard.
Getting the Future Buyer Electric
This “Year of the Honda SUV” includes models like the HR-V, CR-V, and Pilot, which play important roles in getting ready for mass sales of Honda EVs to start with the Prologue in 2024. The all-wheel-drive Prologue will be aimed at people who are active and want the versatility of an SUV with the zero-emissions benefit of a BEV.
Honda’s research shows that people who buy hybrid-electric cars are among the first to switch to full-electric cars. Honda plans to sell 50% hybrid models of the 2023 CR-V, and customers in ZEV states will be able to lease the CR-V hybrid for only two years when it comes out in the fall of 2022. This will make it easy for people in those markets to switch to a Prologue when the new EV comes out in 2024. In this way, the company’s growing number of hybrid sales will help build up a customer base for EVs.
Rollout of Honda’s Electric Vehicles
Honda’s goal is to make all of its products and business activities carbon neutral by 2050. To reach this goal, it will release 30 new electric vehicles (EVs) around the world by 2030 and sell 2 million of them. In North America, Honda has set up a tight schedule for introducing EVs. The first three phases will end in 2030, and by 2040, all cars sold will be emission-free.
