2025 Honda Prelude: Electric car coupe concept debuts in Tokyo

After a more than 20-year hiatus what appears to be the precursor to a sixth-generation Honda Prelude has debuted today at this year’s Japan Mobility Show.

Honda says the pure EV Prelude Concept “inherits the joy of driving into the age of full-scale electrification”.

Aside from confirming the concept as an EV and a “sports model” technical detail is thin on the ground although the Japanese maker confirms it is “currently working diligently on development”.

Showing broadly similar proportions to the fifth-gen ‘2+2’ Prelude that departed the Australian market in 2002, the dramatic concept’s obviously aero-influenced design includes detail elements like flush door handles, a sweeping turret, large rear spoiler and complex rear diffuser.

Black multi-spoke 20-inch rims wear 245/35 Z-rated Continental SportContact 6 rubber.

The interior layout is a mystery, with the concept’s solid black glasshouse indicating this display car is a styling buck rather than an operational prototype.

Stay tuned for powertrain and possible production timing details.
