Prepare for a new Prelude, says Honda


Honda has encouraged enthusiasts to “keep your expectations high” as it showed off a precursor to the next Prelude.

You won’t be surprised to learn that the Prelude concept, just revealed in Tokyo, is electrified (a hybrid, in this case) but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be dull, assures Honda President and CEO Toshihiro Mibe. The car will “embody Honda’s unalterable sports mindset,” he says, adding that “The Prelude concept is a speciality sports model that will offer exhilarating experience that makes you want to keep going forever.”

The Prelude concept will “take the joy of driving into the full-fledged electrified future,” adds Mibe.

Exactly how it will do this remains a mystery as Honda provided no technical details to accompany the car’s unveiling, but, unlike several other concepts making their debuts in Japan, the Prelude’s design looks remarkably ready for the road.

It’s a fairly conventional coupe with elegant proportions that shies away from fussy detailing, just as the Prelude always has done.

As for when, or indeed if, we’ll get to see it on the road Mibe would only say, “we are diligently progressing with development”.
