2024 Honda Prologue: A Review

An update on the release of the 2024 Honda Prologue. 

Japanese automotive manufacturer Honda is making another attempt at producing an electric vehicle that gets customers’ attention after failing with the little “e” town car, Clarity sedan, and Fit EV. 

The new 2024 Prologue SUV has an understated exterior style that does not scream that it is electric. It is similar in size to the Passport and will sit above the CR-V in Honda’s line-up. While there is some stiff competition with the release of the Acura ZDX, Honda has created a delicate balance between traditional and modern eco-friendly with this new release.

Under the Bonnet of the 2024 Honda Prologue

Under the bonnet of this EV, the Prologue has a platform that is produced in partnership with General Motors. Within this platform is the Ultium battery pack, which contains 85.0 kWh. Along with the Prologue, several General Motor EVs use this platform, including the Equinox EV. It has been released that the Prologue shares several key components with the Equinox EV.

The 2024 Prologue comes in two different set-ups, including a single-motor front-wheel drive that produces up to 212 horsepower and can complete 0-60mph in 6.7 seconds. The all-wheel drive option will increase the overall horsepower by 76 as a second motor is added to its platform, increasing the power it can produce. It can complete 0-60mph in 6.1 seconds. 

The Honda Prologue’s fuel economy shows that the front-wheel-drive version with either the EX or Touring trim is the most fuel-efficient. It has a 107 MPGe rating in a city environment.  

It has steady handling and gives a smooth ride for its passengers. Overall, it is a well-mannered SUV, perfect for families or commuting. When deciding on the platform, the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive version has better acceleration, but the single-motor front-wheel-drive has a more extensive driving range, so choosing the specifications you want on the Prologue will be down to your lifestyle and needs.

The Exterior and Interior of the 2024 Honda Prologue

This SUV sits on 21-inch wheels and contains a panoramic sunroof and LED lighting elements throughout the exterior and interior of the car.  It is offered in five trims: 2WD EX, AWD EX, 2WD Touring, AWD Touring, and AWD Elite. 

On the inside, the interior clearly uses elements from other Honda vehicles but with a modern spin. The interior space is five inches wider than the Honda CR-V, giving it a large, spacious feel. It contains a wide array of features and a minimalistic dashboard in neutral tones, including an infotainment display and a center console design. The infotainment system includes an 11-inch touchscreen with media applications and easy-to-use navigation. 

The entry-level trim, the EX, contains features such as heated front seats, climate control, a wireless phone charger, and a large cargo area. Unlike many other EVs, Honda has decided to keep the buttons and knobs, giving a nod to the past. The Touring upgrade includes leather upholstery, a 12-speaker Bose music system, and individualized seat settings. 

It has a range of driver assistance features to appease many drivers. These include lane-keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning.

The Driving Range of the 2024 Honda Prologue

The Prologue driving range should be between 250 and 300 miles on a full charge. The front wheel range has a maximum driving range of 296 miles, while the all-wheel drive version has a smaller maximum driving range of 281 miles. This number is also dependent on where and how you are driving. It can also be dependent on the trim you buy. The EX and Touring trims will not affect the maximum driving range of the all-wheel Touring, but the Elite trim will reduce the distance it can drive by 8 miles. It has a fast-charging battery when using a DC fast charger, but Honda also sells an at-home charging kit for convenience if you want to install one in your home.  

Its starting price is $40,000, which will increase depending on the model and additional extras. It has a generous warranty that includes a three-year limited warranty or 36,00 miles, a five-year powertrain warranty or 60,00 miles, and complimentary scheduled maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles. 

Honda has released a solid product that is sure to be the start of its successful electric vehicle journey. The 2024 Honda Prologue should be available for customers to order now.
