2024 Honda Prologue Summary Points

  • Expect the starting MSRP to land near $49,000 (with the destination charge) for the 2024 Prologue.

2024 Honda Prologue: What’s New?

The Honda Prologue is all-new for the 2024 model year. Riding on a similar skateboard-type BEV3 platform developed by General Motors, you can call the Prologue a precursor to Honda’s first in-house developed electric car.

The 2024 Prologue is about eight inches longer and five inches wider than its popular CR-V stablemate, offering more room for five adults and cargo. However, the Prologue has optional third-row seating to accommodate up to seven passengers, a feature that could prove beneficial for some buyers.

Powertrain & Charging

The 2024 Prologue will arrive with single or dual-electric motors in EX and Touring grades.

Meanwhile, the range-topping Prologue Elite has dual motors and standard all-wheel drive (AWD). Prologues with a single front-mounted electric motor have 212 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. of torque, while the Elite has 288 horsepower and 333 lb-ft. of torque.

All Honda Prologues have an 85 kWh lithium-ion Ultium battery pack. The electric architecture enables DC fast charging up to 150 kW, enough to replenish 65 miles of juice in 10 minutes.

Driving Range

The longest-range Prologue is the EX and Touring 2WD with an EPA-rated 296 miles per full charge (107/91 city/highway and 99 combined MGPe). By contrast, the dual-motor variant achieves 281 miles of range (101/88 city/highway and 95 combined MPGe).

Meanwhile, the Prologue Elite AWD delivers 273 miles of range.

Standard Tech Features

The standard features include an 11-inch digital instrument display, an 11.3-inch infotainment touchscreen with Google built-in, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and Sirius XM satellite radio.

Other standard features include a 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, four USB-C charging ports (two in the front, two in the back), and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Interior Room & Cargo Space

Measuring 192 inches long and 78.3 inches wide, the 2024 Honda Prologue offers an interior volume of 136.9 cubic feet. With a 121.8-inch wheelbase (more than the CR-V, Pilot, and Passport), the Prologue has decent legroom in the front and second rows.

In addition, it offers 25.2 cubic feet of trunk space behind the third row. Honda claims it’s enough for up to three golf bags, but it’s still less than in a CR-V. Folding the third-row chairs reveals up to 57.7 cubic feet of storage room.

Moreover, the Prologue has a hidden space under the cargo floor, revealing an extra 0.5 cubic feet of storage room.

Honda Prologue Conclusion

Honda may have been late to the EV bandwagon, but the Prologue is better late than never. Promising competitive range and family-friendly features, the Prologue will surely stir the pot filled with the likes of the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Kia EV6, and Hyundai Ioniq 5.
