The Honda Prologue
Honda Motor has announced that it will launch its electric car for the first time in North America.
The Honda Prologue, which will be released on the American and Canadian market early next year, is developed jointly with the manufacturer General Motors and produced at their factories. It will also become the first Japanese brand vehicle eligible for the buyer to benefit from a tax credit of up to $7,500.
If Honda created the exterior and interior of the Prologue, GM designed the Ultium lithium-ion battery which will allow you to travel 480 km on a single recharge. The car will have an integrated Google system, and would cost from $40,000.
