Wondering if you can purchase a Honda EV in the U.S. yet? Unfortunately, the short answer is no; you can’t buy an electric Honda—yet. Nonetheless, you can get different Honda hybrids. But if you can wait, a few Honda EV models will be out by 2024, according to CNN.
How Many Honda EV Models Will Launch?According to TechCrunch, Honda plans to launch 30 electric vehicle models by 2030. In 2024, Honda will have two electric models in North America. The Honda EV models will be in the mid- to large-size vehicle class. Both electric Honda models will be SUVs and will launch under a partnership with General Motors. One SUV will sell under the Honda brand, and the other vehicle will use Honda’s luxury brand name, Acura. Per Honda’s website, the auto giant plans to make two-thirds of its global vehicle sales electric by 2030.
What Honda Electric Vehicle Model Can I Expect?According to Autoweek, Honda’s SUV model will go by the name of Prologue. The sports utility vehicle will feature Ultium batteries. These batteries come from General Motors and will require charging for the car to run. Check out the video below for a preview of the Honda Prologue.
Unlike hybrids, an electric Honda does not have gas as a backup fuel source. Owners of a 2024 Prologue will need to plug in at charging stations to “refuel.” Currently, the availability of plug-in charging stations can vary across the United States. So, if you plan on buying a Honda electric vehicle in 2024, you might want to install a charging station in your garage. Honda and General Motors have yet to release the full specs on Prologue’s expected battery life and mileage.
