General Motors and Honda have formed a strategic alliance to produce several electric vehicles. One of these new EVs will be the 2024 Honda Prologue, a crossover that will share the BEV3 platform with Chevy Blazer EV.

“We announced a plan two years ago, positioned as a smart strategy, to co-develop an electric vehicle with GM,” said Mamadou Diallo, vice president of Auto Sales, American Honda Motor Co. “What will result is not just a more efficient process, but a great looking new vehicle, the Honda Prologue. Our dealers are excited about Prologue and the fact that it is just the first volume Honda EV, with more Honda engineered EVs we will begin building in North America coming to market in 2026.”

Honda has now offered the first look at the exterior and interior styling of the all-new Honda Prologue battery-electric SUV that will see its market launch in 2024.

The Honda design team based in Los Angeles is responsible for leading the exterior and interior styling of the upcoming car. Neo-rugged was coined as the design direction, focussing on the harmony of nature’s elements to the exterior and interior of Prologue. The front fascia is influenced by the distinctive exterior of the Honda e EV model. Prologue will have a wheelbase of 121.8-inches, and is about 8-inches longer and 5-inches wider than the all-new 2023 Honda CR-V.

Prologue will use GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium drive motors. More engineering details will be available closer to date.
