Is the Honda Prologue Worth Buying?

The Honda Prologue is slated to arrive at the Cambridge Centre Honda showroom soon. Obviously, the top headline about the new Honda crossover SUV is that it’s the automaker’s first all-electric model in the popular segment. In addition to eliminating traditional internal combustion engines in lieu of power electric motors, the Prologue is also packed with the latest connectivity technology, including a full suite of Google products. The addition of the Google suite provides more access to the internet company’s products than simply pairing a smartphone to the infotainment system. Let’s take a look at some of the features that will be available.

Save Money on Fuel Costs

Whether a vehicle uses electricity, gasoline, or diesel for fuel, there will be a cost to keeping a vehicle ready to go. Gas and diesel prices fluctuate wildly from day to day, if not hour to hour. That kind of price instability isn’t likely to change any time soon, if ever. 

Electricity prices are not only generally affordable but also very stable. We can’t tell you exactly how much it will cost you to charge your Honda Prologue because there are so many variables at play. However, a study cited by Car Nation Canada said that the average cost to keep an election vehicle charged is around $277 per year, or a little more than $23 per month. A platform with a 60-litre gas tank would cost an owner about $84 per month, per the same study.

How Long Does it Take to Charge the Battery?

Owners of the Honda Prologue will have to make some decisions when it comes to charging. If you’re short on time you’ll want to look out for DC fast chargers that can add over 100 km of range in as little as 10 minutes.

Using lower-powered chargers will take longer to replenish the battery.

Google Smart Technology

It makes perfect sense that a cutting-edge platform like the Honda Prologue is equipped with the latest smart connectivity technology. The Prologue EV crossover SUV isn’t the first Honda vehicle to be equipped with Google Built-In, but it is the latest. This means that future owners will have incredible access to popular Google software like:

  • Gmail
  • Google Maps
  • Google Play (app store)
  • Google Assistant 

The integrated Google Maps feature will be especially helpful when you’re out and about in town and looking for a place to charge your Honda Prologue. Additionally, Google Maps will be able to provide a fairly accurate estimate for charging time and automatically start the pre-conditioning process for the vehicle’s battery.
