Charging the Honda Prologue

Everything drivers need to know about the Honda Prologue

The first Honda electric vehicle (EV) available in North America since the Clarity EV’s discontinuation in 2019, the Honda Prologue EV represents the Japanese brand’s first mainstream model in its electric future as it works to have zero emission-powered vehicles make up all new car sales by 2040. The Prologue is built on the GM-sourced Ultium-platform while interior components and software are madeby Honda. That means the Prologue benefits from the same electrical system that boasts 90% less wiring and reduced dependency on cobalt for simplified manufacturing.  


In contrast to its Chevy Blazer EV platform mate, the Prologue incorporates a toned down classic look that immediately identifies it as a Honda for prospective customers. Available in both single-motor front-wheel drive (FWD) and dual-motor all-wheel drive (AWD) powertrains, Prologue vehicles get access to either 212 or 288 horsepower respectively. Both configurations have an 85 kWh battery  for up to 296 miles of range.

Federal EV tax credits

Starting in 2022, EVs and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) became eligible for federal tax credits up to $7,500 for new EVs and PHEVs and up to $4,000 for used clean vehicles that met certain battery production and materials requirements. As of early 2024, the Honda Prologue qualifies for the full $7,500 tax credit.

Charging the Honda Prologue

While Honda Prologues come in either FWD or AWD configurations, they all come with the same battery pack and charging speeds: 85 kWh battery with 11.5 kW Level 2 charging and 155 kW DC fast charging capabilities.


Having a smart Level 2 EV charger at home allows new Prologue drivers to take advantage convenient and cheaper charging. A home charger like the JuiceBox 48 provides the max charging speeds to power your Prologue from 0% to 100% overnight, allowing you to start your day on the road with a full charge.
