Hitting the sweet spot of the EV market

Woelfer explained that the Prologue hits the “sweet spot” as a sleek, sporty electric SUV with the right price.

Although it’s based on GM’s platform, Honda tuned the vehicle with added multi-link front and rear suspensions for a “sporty and engaging” drive.
