The all-electric 2024 Honda Prologue is finally here with up to 300 miles of range

Our range anxiety is vanishing

Honda is finally bringing its first electric vehicle to the United States, dubbed the 2024 Honda Prologue. Technically, the Honda Clarity was Honda’s first EV in the U.S., but that doesn’t count since it’s powered by hydrogen and was only offered on a lease.

The Honda Prologue is an all-electric SUV that looks like the bigger version of the Honda-E but with a modern and sporty design that appears more aggressive. In fact, it’s slightly longer and bigger than the Honda CR-V but almost the same size as the Honda Passport. However, its overhang is shorter compared to the Passport. 

All about the Honda Prologue EV

How far can it travel on a fully charged battery? Honda says the Prologue is anticipated to have a range of up to 300 miles with a battery capacity of 85 kWh. Interestingly, the Honda Prologue is built on GM’s Ultium EV platform, and it comes with the same range as the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV. Besides that, it can also charge almost as fast as the Chevy Equinox EV by adding 65 miles in just 10 minutes at a DC fast charger. Just like GM, you may have to wait until 2025 for Honda to fully adopt Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) — but you can still access the Tesla Supercharger network using an adapter.

If you enjoy off-road adventure, the Honda Prologue EV is available in an all-wheel-drive configuration that can deliver 288 horsepower and 333 lb.-ft of torque. Of course, you also have the option to choose the front-wheel drive configuration with a longer range. Honda is yet to disclose how much power you should expect from the single motor configuration, but since it shares the same platform with the Equinox EV, it will likely produce 210 horsepower.

Inside, the Honda Prologue features an 11.3-inch touchscreen display that is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and an 11-inch digital gauge display behind the steering wheel. It also comes with the same cabin design and interior standard features you will find on the 2024 Honda Pilot and CR-V. But if you want a more premium interior, you could consider the Touring and Elite trim options.

The 2024 Honda Prologue is scheduled to be delivered in early 2024. So far, we don’t know how much it will be sold for, but it will probably match up to the Equinox EV; the Equinox EV is expected to start at upper $40k, despite GM’s earlier promise of a $30k price tag. However, since the 2024 Honda Prologue will be built in the same production facility in North America as the Equinox EV, the price tag may be reduced by up to $7,500 if it qualifies for the EV tax credit

Lexus may be releasing the world’s longest-range EV
Forget hybrid cars — Lexus is focused on EVs
Lexus EV concept

After long dominating the hybrid market Toyota, or at least one of its subsidiaries, has set its sights on the burgeoning world of electric cars. If all goes to plan, the Japanese company’s luxury line, Lexus, could have the longest-range electric vehicle on the market in a few years’ time, as it becomes less focused on Lexus hybrid cars.

Lexus has dipped its toes in the lithium-laced waters of the electric vehicle market before -- but its efforts have been a little underwhelming. Its RZ 450e does come with 308 horsepower, but it takes the crossover 5 seconds to go from 0 to 60, which is fairly pedestrian by EV standards. Worse yet is the range, a major sticking point for many EV naysayers. The RZ Premium maxes out at 220 miles, which is below par for a modern EV and pretty bad for a supposed luxury option.

The Chevy Equinox EV could be available for less than $30k in 2024 — but there is a catch
The Chevy Equinox EV will be more affordable than ever

Earlier this year, GM announced it was killing its most affordable and popular EV — the Chevy Bolt. With the Chevy Bolt discontinued, GM will need another affordable EV to fill that space. Its best candidate is the Chevy Equinox EV, and the automaker promised it would sell for less than $30k.

Well, the Chevy Equinox will finally hit the dealerships by early 2024, and you could still have it for less than $30k — but there is a catch. According to GM, the Chevy Equinox base model will start at $34,995 inclusive of the destination fee. That’s not the less than $30k we were promised, but if you qualify for the electric vehicle tax credit, you could reduce the price by $7,500 to $27,495.

Say goodbye to the ultimate cafe racer motorcycle: The 2024 Triumph Thruxton Final Edition
Orders can be placed now for the Triumph Thruxton for delivery next spring
Right side of the 2024 Triumph Thruston Final Edition, the last year for the ultimate cafe racer.

The 2024 Triumph Thruxton Final Edition will end its 60-year run as one of the definitive examples of cafe racer motorcycles. Triumph introduced the Thruxton in 1964 as a limited edition production motorcycle designed to compete in endurance races, such as the Thruxton 500, for which Triumph named the bike.
The Thruxton 500 was an annual 500-mile, 9-hour endurance race in England from 1955 to 1973.  Two riders took turns riding a single motorcycle to complete the grueling competition. The early Triumph Thruxtons had notable success, including lapping the Isle of Man TT Mountain Race with an average speed of over 100 miles per hour. The crowning performance, however, came in 1969 when teams of Triumph Thruxtons dominated the winners' podium, with first, second, and third-place finishes.
The Thruxton's race-inspired design also appealed to riders seeking the right kind of motorcycle to blast around the countryside from one cafe to another.
In motorcycle lingo, a cafe racer has a distinctive style, with components intentionally chosen to support the demands for competitive street performance. Forget the higher handlebars and upright forward seating of most Bonnevilles. If you've ridden a motorcycle, e-bike, or even a bicycle at speed, you know that sitting upright results in greater wind against your chest and your face.

That added resistance requires greater power for the bike to go fast, and it can also get tiring quickly because it's harder for the rider to hang onto the handlebar grips. Cafe racer grips are low, and the seats let you scootch back and lean close to the gas tank to reduce wind resistance.
