The mid-size crossover, which is based on the Chevrolet Blazer EV and built by GM, will undercut its platform mate on price with a $48,795 MSRP for the front-wheel-drive EX model.
Honda says the Prologue's range estimate is best in class, but we beg to differ given the Blazer EV is rated for as much as 324 miles per charge.
The launch of the 2024 Honda Prologue has been years in the making, but it appears as though our wait for the electric crossover is nearly over. Honda has announced a base price for the EX front-wheel-drive model of $48,795, along with an EPA-rated range estimate of up to 296 miles per charge.
Front-wheel-drive models are powered by a single 212-hp electric motor. This configuration is offered in both EX and Touring trims, with the latter costing slightly more at $53,095. A dual-motor all-wheel-drive powertrain is available which boosts combined output to 288 horsepower, but it reduces range to 281 on EX and Touring models. With all-wheel drive, the price of the EX climbs to $51,795, while the Touring trim costs $56,095. The range-topping Elite trim, which carries a price tag of $59,295, gets all-wheel drive as standard and comes with a 273-mile driving range estimate.
While these prices undercut the Prologue's platform-mate—the Chevrolet Blazer EV—by thousands of dollars, the range numbers for the Honda aren't as impressive as the Chevy's. The Blazer EV's longest-range model is the rear-wheel-drive RS trim, which is said to offer a range of up to 324 miles per charge. It does cost far more than the Honda, though, at $61,790.
All Prologue models come standard with a generous list of equipment, including a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, 19-inch wheels, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a Google-based infotainment interface with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
Honda will offer buyers a range of charging benefits to choose from when completing their purchase. The first option is a $500 home charging installation credit coupled with a $100 credit for EVGo public chargers and 60.0 kWh of charging from Electrify America. If you'd prefer more public charging credits you can elect a lower home charger installation credit of $250, which boosts the EVGo credit to $300. Finally, for those who don't plan to install charging at home, there's a choice of $750 in credit from EVGo and 60.0 kWh from Electrify America.
Prologues will start rolling into Honda showrooms as early as March 2024, but we'll get a first crack at test-driving the SUV in February. Check back soon for our driving impressions and real-world evaluation of the Prologue's driving range.
