The first generation was introduced in 1978, but it was the second generation that debuted in 1982 that ignited its popularity. However, perhaps due to the passage of time, the curtain came down on the fifth generation in 2001. The Scoop Team has been predicting the revival of the Prelude for some time now, and now it is about to become a reality.
Inside the cabin, a 2+2 seat layout will be adopted, as in a specialty model. The instrument panel is expected to feature a digital infotainment cluster and integrated display, creating a futuristic, high-quality space that is typical of new-generation date cars.
As for the powertrain, President Mibe has stated, “The Prelude will be the pioneer of a model that embodies Honda’s sports mindset, inheriting the ‘joy of driving’ into the age of full-fledged electrification,” and it is likely to be an “e:HEV” hybrid The 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine is combined with a motor, and maximum output is expected to exceed 300ps. The drive system is FF, and a manual transmission is expected to be available.
The Prelude is expected to go on sale in 2025. If realized, it will be the first time in 24 years.
