- Full-electric Prologue is the first Honda SUV to integrate Google built-in and wireless Apple CarPlay
The first volume EV from Honda, the all-new 2024 Prologue SUV, will offer customers the latest digital services technology and features, with available wireless Apple CarPlay, Googlei built-in and Android Auto™ii. The all-electric Honda Prologue will go on sale in Canada in early 2024.
For seamless on-the-go digital services, the 2024 Honda Prologue will be the first Honda SUV to come with available Google built-in, which debuted on the 2023 Honda Accord Touring Hybrid. Available on all Prologue trims, it includes apps such as Google Assistant, Google Maps and more on Google Play.
“Having Google Built-in, Apple Car Play and Android Auto available on the full-electric 2024 Honda Prologue will make the ownership experience even better for our Canadian customers,” says Steve Hui Assistant Vice President Honda Canada. “These in-vehicle tech collaborations allow us to offer consumers accessible and intuitive digital services, something many look for when shopping for their next vehicle.”
Enhanced to keep EV owners on their adventure, Google Maps offers optimized route planning for recharging, and finding charging stations along the way to minimize travel time. Google Maps can also estimate the charging timeiii required to reach the destination and can initiate preconditioning of the EV battery when the destination is a DC Fast charging station. Battery preconditioning can reduce fast charge times, getting customers back on the road faster to continue their road adventure.
In addition to the embedded Google apps, a number of other intuitive technologies have been smartly integrated into Prologue’s tech-rich cabin as standard equipment, including an 11-inch digital driver instrumentation display, a large 11.3-inch centre touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ compatibility and Honda’s first pocket type wireless smartphone charger. A 7x3-inch head-up display and a 12-speaker Bose premium audio system will be available.
Honda Prologue will benefit from fast and secure Over the Air (OTA) software updates to key vehicle computer modules, enhancing functionality and capability.
Honda will begin pre-sales for the Prologue this fall, ahead of a winter 2024 on-sale. Customers interested in the all-new Prologue can find more information and sign up for updates here.
