Honda Motor Co. took a step closer toward a goal of electrifying its U.S. lineup by naming an upcoming all-electric model and adding a battery-powered sport-utility vehicle to its upscale Acura brand.

The Japanese automaker, which last year partnered with General Motors Co. to develop electric vehicles, said Monday its new Honda Prologue and an accompanying Acura model will debut in 2024. The two SUVs are part of the company’s global move to phase out gasoline-powered vehicles completely by 2040 and represent an effort to accelerate the arrival of EVs in Honda’s U.S. showrooms.
