Honda revives iconic model after 25 years of absence

There hasn't been a Prelude in Honda's model range since 2001. And another two years pass before the Japanese revive the name.

25 years!

That's how long we've had to wait for a new Honda Prelude. Not since 2001 has the name appeared in Honda's model range, and the Japanese are also pushing the launch to 2026.

However, this is not because it is an electric car. Instead, the Prelude comes again as a two-door coupé. The new thing is a hybrid engine. It is not yet known which engine it is exactly.

That's what Car and Driver writes.

However, the media has a bid for the engine. Honda is already planning to put a two-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine in a future Civic Hybrid.

Honda will not yet reveal much about that car either. Not even when it comes to horsepower. But in the current Accord Hybrid with the same engine, there is 204 horsepower to come.

Not much now, and certainly not in 2026. In comparison, the Prelude Type S, which Honda recently only sold on the domestic market in Japan, had 220 horsepower and 221 newton meters.

Here at home, the Danish Honda importer last had the Prelude on the program in 2000. The most expensive model then cost just under DKK 375,000. If the amount is adjusted for inflation, it will correspond to 593,873 current kroner. Ouch!
