2024 Honda Prologue's Handsome Design RevealedHonda
  • Honda has released the first images of the 2024 Prologue's interior and exterior design.

  • This new EV crossover is a collaboration with General Motors and shares components with the Chevy Blazer EV.

  • The Prologue will go on sale in 2024 and will be followed by other Honda EVs in 2026 and 2027.

If you're interested in the new Chevy Blazer EV but aren't a fan of the styling, Honda will offer an alternative in the form of the 2024 Prologue. The two mid-size EV SUVs share underpinnings, powertrains, and battery packs but will feature different designs inside and out, with the Honda presenting a cleaner look compared with the Blazer's as evidenced by these new photos of the electric crossover's exterior and interior.

Finished in a new color called North Shore Pearl, the Prologue looks clean and modern and should fit in well with the rest of Honda's SUV lineup. It's larger than the compact CR-V and similar in size to the mid-size, two-row Passport. Its relationship to the Blazer are only obvious in terms of the proportions, as the Honda appears to have the same short rear overhang, long wheelbase, and a similar window line as the Chevy.

Inside, the Prologue will feature two large screens: an 11.0-inch digital gauge cluster and an 11.3-inch central infotainment touchscreen. We're pleased to see what appear to be physical HVAC buttons and knobs below the screen rather than touch-sensitive controls. Eagle-eyed readers familiar with the GM lineup may recognize certain components pulled from the corporate parts bin, including the start button and door handles, but that's no surprise given the collaboration between the two automakers.

The Prologue's powertrain is likely to mirror the Blazer EV's, which is available in many different configurations including front-, rear-, and all-wheel-drive variants. All Honda has announced so far is that the Prologue will be offered with all-wheel drive, meaning that some sort of dual-motor setup will be offered. We'd guess that the Prologue will offer a single-motor, front-wheel-drive setup as standard, with a dual-motor powertrain optional. Range figures should fall somewhere between 250 miles and 320 miles based on the Blazer's estimates.

Look for more information to come within the next few months as Honda releases more specs about the Prologue. There's no official word on when production will start, but it's looking like the Blazer EV will begin deliveries considerably earlier than its Honda, as Chevy claims it will arrive in summer 2023 and the Prologue is slated to arrive in 2024.
