2024 Honda Prologue: EPA Range And Energy Consumption Comparison

By automotive-mag.com 4 Min Read

The all-new 2024 Honda Prologue recently entered the U.S. market, with the first 93 units delivered in April. Meanwhile, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officially listed the model’s range and energy consumption ratings.

The Japanese EV, based on General Motors’s Ultium platform, is equipped with an 85-kilowatt-hour battery and one of two powertrains: 158-kilowatt front-wheel drive or 215-kW dual-motor, all-wheel drive.

The entry-level Honda Prologue FWD with 19-inch wheels (255/60R19 109H) has an EPA Combined range of 296 miles, as stated by the manufacturer. The switch to AWD reduces the range by 15 miles or 5.1% to 281 miles.

The top-of-the-line Elite trim also has bigger 21-inch wheels (275/45R21 107H), which further reduce the driving range and lower the EPA value to 273 miles (8 miles or 2.8% compared to AWD 19-inch).

Energy consumption, including charging losses, of the 2024 Honda Prologue FWD with 19-inch wheels is estimated at 99 MPGe or about 340 watt-hours per mile (2.9 miles/kWh).

The AWD version is rated at 95 MPGe: 355 Wh/mi or 2.8 miles/kWh, while the Elite AWD with 21-inch wheels consumes the most energy (92 MPGe): 366 Wh/mi or 2.7 miles/kWh.

Let’s note that the highway MPGe ratings are noticeably lower in all cases than the combined values. We estimate the EPA Highway range is 20+ miles (or almost 10%) lower. However, this is only a rough estimate because the MPGe number includes charging losses. For the Elite AWD 21-inch version, we are talking about 250 miles on the highway.
