While we’re still a long way out, Honda just recently announced that they’ll be adding a new all-electric vehicle to their lineup for the 2024 model year. The new model, dubbed the Honda Prologue EV, will be the first in an ongoing series of battery-electric vehicles – hence the name Prologue. Details are obviously scarce considering how far out we are, but we thought we’d highlight what we know so far before it becomes available in early 2024.

“Our first volume Honda BEV will begin our transition to electrification and the name Honda Prologue signals the role it will play in leading to our zero-emission future. The Prologue will provide our customers with a battery-electric SUV with the excellent functionality and packaging they’ve come to expect from Honda.”

– Dave Gardner, Executive Vice President, American Honda

What do we know so far?

Very little. We know that the Honda Prologue will be an SUV, though we don’t know which size or segment it will belong to. We know, as mentioned, that it is just the first in what will eventually be a much bigger series of BEVs. Honda has stated that more specific details will be released over the coming months, so we’ll be sure to fill you in on the details either here on the White’s Lima blog or over on the White’s Honda blog itself.

What do we know of Honda’s future plans?

We know that Honda intends to build this model (as well as the new all-electric SUV) on their current EV platform that’s powered by Ultium batteries, but will eventually build models on a new e:Architecture late in the decade. Honda also intends to achieve complete carbon-neutrality by 2050. To accomplish that, Honda will look to achieve a 40% ratio of BEV and FCEV to traditional models by 2030, 80% by 2035, and 100% by 2040. That means Honda plans on going completely electric by the 2040 model year.

Pretty crazy stuff that we’re excited to see play out! We’ll be sure to fill you in with additional details as they become available, so check back often.
