Honda might be working on a new model or concept, since it recently trademarked the Prologue name in the United States.

Honda Prologue Trademark

We don’t know much about what the Prologue name will be used for, since the trademark states that it’s for “land vehicles, namely, automobiles, battery electric vehicles and structural parts for the foregoing.”

Now for the speculation. Could the Honda Prologue be a new electric car? We’d love to see Honda get back in the EV game here in the US, since it currently doesn’t offer an electric vehicle. The last one was the Clarity Electric and before that we had the Honda Fit EV. In other markets Honda does offer the cute Honda e electric hatchback.

For now we’ll just have to wait and see.
