Honda’s First All-Electric Vehicle (News21USA): Honda has released more details about its upcoming all-electric Prologue SUV, which is set to hit the market in early 2024. The vehicle is expected to offer a range of 300 miles, and Honda anticipates the starting price to be in the «upper $40,000s» before incentives and tax credits.
The Prologue’s pricing places it slightly above competitors like the Volkswagen ID.4, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and Mustang Mach-E, all of which start at around $40,000. However, its range falls short of the Ioniq 6’s 361 miles and is also slightly less than the Hummer EV’s 314 miles.
This electric SUV is built on the GM Ultium EV architecture, the same platform used for GM’s electric vehicles such as the Chevy Blazer EV. It features an 85-kWh battery pack that is common to both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models. It’s worth noting that the 300-mile estimated range applies to the 2WD variant, and the range of the AWD version has not been disclosed yet. The AWD version is expected to produce around 288 hp and 333 lb-ft of torque, as per Honda’s performance figures.
