Honda calls the Prologue’s look “neo-rugged.” This exterior treatment, the product of the company’s California-based design team, brings together the needs for space and practicality while emphasizing the vehicle’s originality. The designers relied on clean, simple surfacing and large 21-inch wheels to give the Prologue a planted and capable stance. A panoramic roof will be among the available features, adding to the modern aesthetic while improving the ride experience for occupants.
Honda fans will recognize a front end with similar design language to the latest generation of the company’s vehicles. The difference is that the Prologue can go a step further to look unique, since its all-electric powertrain means there’s no need for a radiator and a large grille to cover it.
The Prologue will take its place alongside Honda’s other crossovers: the subcompact HR-V, the compact CR-V, the midsized Passport, and the three-row Pilot. With a 121.8-inch wheelbase and two rows, the Prologue will slot in just below the Passport in size; it’s 8 inches longer and 5 inches wider than the 2023 CR-V. Like the other Honda crossovers, the Prologue will be available with all-wheel drive.
Specifics about the Prologue’s range and charging times are still in the works, but Honda promises an advanced battery electric vehicle that will more than meet the needs of drivers who prefer to skip the gas pump. The Prologue’s technology-centered cabin will include a standard 11-inch all-digital instrument cluster and an 11.3-inch infotainment display.
