The Honda Prologue will be built on GM’s Altium platform
Honda has released a teaser photo of its upcoming Prologue electric SUV. The company will present this electric car in 2024. This is Honda’s first battery-electric vehicle to be sold in the US. The Prologue will be the first of two vehicles that Honda is making with the help of American automaker General Motors using the company’s Altium battery pack.
Honda has told through a press release that the Prologue electric car will be made available for sale in the US in 2024. Apart from this, the company has also revealed that by 2030, Honda will launch 30 hybrid, battery-electric, and fuel-cell vehicles. These EVs will be built on several EV architectures being built by Honda and some of them are being developed in collaboration with General Motors.

Talking about the Honda Prologue, the Honda Prologue will be built on the GM (General Motors) Altium platform. According to The Verge, the platform is also powering the Detroit-based automaker’s Hummer EV pickup truck and the Cadillac Lyriq SUV. Honda’s other EVs will be built on the Honda E architecture, which the company plans to introduce in 2026.
As seen in the teaser image, the Prologue is taking some subtle design cues from the well-loved Honda E city car. Honda is also stressing the vehicle’s long wheelbase and short overhang, or the length of the vehicle that extends beyond its wheelbase. The Prologue was designed at the Honda Design Studio in Los Angeles in collaboration with a design team in Japan.
Diallo said :
“We wanted to ensure that Prologue represents both a true Honda EV and something that would look right at home in the showroom right next to the rest of our SUV lineup,”
Honda’s current electric lineup is extremely limited as compared to other automakers. The company recently discontinued its Clarity EV, though it will continue to sell hydrogen and plug-in hybrid versions of the vehicle. And the Honda E is only available in Japan and Europe.

In 2027, Honda plans to produce a range of “affordable” EVs, including a compact SUV. Those vehicles will be based on a new EV architecture that the company is developing in collaboration with GM.
In addition, Honda is targeting to sell 60,000 Prologue SUVs in the US in 2024, 70,000 units in 2025, and 300,000 units in 2026.
