Last September, Honda and GM announced that they were expanding their alliance to North America, with the Japanese company preparing two new electric SUVs.
One of them will be sold under its own brand and the other under the Acura brand. Today, Honda released the first teaser video of its all-electric model, which will be called Prologue. The model name symbolizes the first in a new line of purely electric models from Honda.
These electric SUVs will be sold in the US market and will be manufactured on GM’s Ultium platform while they will draw energy from GM’s new Ultium batteries. Honda will modify the platform so that it “supports the driving character of its models”, with their design being unique, both inside and outside, carrying both the OnStar system and the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system .
Both will be built at GM plants in Mexico and Tennessee. In particular, the factory that is currently manufacturing the Chevrolet Blazer and Equinox in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, will begin construction of Honda’s electric SUV in 2023.
The former Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee, USA, will build the Acura electric SUV from 2024, about two years after the Cadillac Lyriq was built, with the two Honda models being similar in size to this.
