Honda CEO, President, and Executive Director Toshihiro Mibe and Senior Managing Executive Officer Shinji Aoyama revealed in a recent interview that the Prologue will likely have the same driving characteristics as the Chevrolet Blazer EV.

Speaking of the Prologue and GM’s own Ultium-based crossovers, Aoyama admitted that the behind-the-wheel experience would probably be similar.

“We are limited due to the base architecture,” he said. “To differentiate [them] in terms of performance will be difficult.”

Mibe agreed, pointing out that the performance of the Honda Prologue would probably mirror some GM crossovers – likely the Blazer EV – thanks to the shared platform and similar battery specifications. However, both Aoyama and Mibe were confident that the Prologue will still feel like a Honda in many of the ways that consumers will care about the most.

“The design – the top hat – is where we will make our differentiation,” Mibe said.

Honda is very keen on producing more EVs with the help of GM so expect these new EVs to be like the Prologue, in that they will drive like GM EVs.

“The alliance with General Motors is a big weapon for us.”

Honda CEO, President, and Executive Director Toshihiro Mibe summed up his thoughts in that one succinct phrase during a round-table discussion with members of the media last week. Speaking of the company’s transition toward zero carbon emissions, both Mibe and Senior Managing Executive Officer Shinji Aoyama extolled the virtues of Honda’s partnership with GM, both on the Ultium-based 2024 Prologue electric SUV and future products based on a platform codeveloped by the two automotive giants.

“We believe holistic collaboration is mutually beneficial, not only the [vehicle] platform but with purchasing and procurement,” said Aoyama. “Collaboration is the future.”
