Honda has release its first official photo of the Prologue!
This is the first official photo of the Honda Prologue that Honda intends to launch in 2024.
The Prologue is the result of a collaboration between designers in Honda’s Los Angeles design studio and back in Japan. Conceptually, the idea was to make an SUV that looked modern and fresh, but also looks comfortable in a showroom of existing Honda vehicles. Honda says that aerodynamics were a huge focus of the project, because better aero means more range and reduced cabin wind noise. As a result, Honda says it ended up with simple, clean surfaces for its body lines.
“As the project leader for the exterior design of the Honda Prologue, it was very exciting to work with a young team of designers with new capabilities to create an SUV with clean, simple lines and a strong influence from our global EV models, including the Honda E,” said Jiro Ikeda, exterior design leader. “We balanced that with a neo-rugged look that you see in our current lineup, to ensure Prologue represents a true Honda EV.”
You’ll notice in the single photo that the Prologue has a long wheelbase, short front overhang and meaty-looking tires. There’s an opening for air to pass through the lower portion of the bumper, but there’s no dramatic grille. It has a relatively narrow black band of a shield that runs across the front of the car, and this piece contains both the headlights on the edges and the Honda logo front and center. Lots of black-painted accents all over give this silver car a classy and eye-catching two-tone look, and the oversize wheels are drawing a lot of attention to themselves in this photo. Lastly, we’ll point out that the charging port is prominently placed in the front fender.
