Honda has not been the fastest automaker to the EV table, but it’s slowly announcing new models. The Prologue SUV developed in partnership with GM will be first, but Honda also has vehicles in the works with Sony and others in-house. The automaker recently announced a new EV to be shown at next year’s CES show in January, and what we can see of the design suggests a radical shape.
The wedge-shaped front end is almost Lamborghini-like in appearance, though there’s zero indication that it’s going to be anything of the sort. Honda gave no other details other than to outline its electrification plans, which include 30 new EVs globally by decade’s end. Though it only offers one EV model here currently, Honda has other electrics in Japan and global markets.
Though the image is short on detail, other publications have lightened the image to show a unique wheel design and what appears to be glass extending down the front end to past the front wheels. Of course, I’m only speculating with my less-than-perfect eyes here, so the car we see in January could prove me wrong.
If this car makes it to production, it will mark a radical departure from the mainstream styling Honda employed in the Prologue. Even the sharper Acura ZDX, based on the same platform, doesn’t reach this level of abstractness, so it will be interesting to see where Honda goes with the shape.
