Honda has revealed the name for its first electric SUV, posting a tweet that it will make its official debut in 2024. The upcoming electric SUV called Prologue is expected to run on GM’s Ultium batteries. Ultium battery packs also power other EVs like GMC Hummer EV and the Cadillac Lyriq. The tie up, however, is not expected to last very long and Honda also promises EVs based on a new ‘e:Architecture’ in the second half of the decade.
The Prologue will most likely be a milestone model for Honda in recent years. The Japanese manufacturer also plans to make a shift to electric vehicles only by 2040, and aims to attain 40 percent sales in its major markets from battery or hydrogen fuel cells by 2030.

So far, not many details available about the upcoming Prologue except that it will likely be a compact or mid-size SUV. The platform and powertrain will comprise GM components. The biggest difference will be that of body design and interior.
Honda’s concept behind naming the SUV Prologue is to indicate that it’ll be the first of many EVs that will follow. The luxury brand Acura is also expected to roll out its own version of the Prologue in 2024, but it will carry a different name.
