Honda promotes its electric SUV


Honda released the first teaser for its upcoming electric SUV, the Prologue, nearly two years before its scheduled debut in early 2024.

The car is the first tangible fruit of the collaboration with General Motors, which also sees the arrival of a car bearing the Acura logo. The automaker is trying to make up for the time it lost thinking about electric cars.

Following the announcement of the Honda E and a long-term collaboration with General Motors, Honda made clear its ambitions for electric vehicles.

But the company still lags behind most other automakers, particularly its closest rival Toyota, which is introducing its first major electric car this year.

The Prologue is Honda's first electric SUV to be sold in North America (e hatchback is offered in Europe and Japan).

The only image, which is only a computer-generated image and not an actual image of the Prologue, shows the SUV's crisp body lines and thick tires.

Prologue is a design collaboration between its studios in Los Angeles and Japan, and was also developed with General Motors.

This is the first Honda car designed primarily using virtual reality simulation. This approach was necessary due to the requirements of remote working during the coronavirus pandemic, as designers in Los Angeles needed to collaborate virtually with Japanese design and development teams.

The front fascia is inspired by the Honda e and includes slim headlights with horizontal daytime running lights, while the trapezoidal air intake and vertical angle intakes can be found below.

The charging port is located on the left front fender and the door mirrors are mounted on the door body. Honda says it has paid special attention to aerodynamics to reduce wind noise, which is especially important given the silent powertrain.

Prologue is based on GM's modular electric platform and Ultium battery technology. The platform also supports the GMC Hummer EV, Chevrolet Silverado EV and Cadillac Lyriq SUV pickups.

No details were disclosed. But the car is expected to share the same specs as the Lyriq, which should be about the same size as the Honda.

Honda plans to unveil 30 new electric vehicles by 2030, with expected sales of 2 million units. It also plans to start producing and selling new electric cars based on e:Architecture in 2026.

It is supposed to have affordable electric cars (also developed with General Motors) in 2027.

There is not much information at the moment. But it's still worth seeing that Honda is focusing on electric cars.

The company also plans to offer Level 2 autonomous driving and express shipping to dealerships across the United States. Plus some more modern building designs.
