Dodge Electric muscle car to be launched in 2024 with high technology and real sound too.
Dodge’s first electric car has officially been unveiled. As expected, this is a concept model. But as a surprise, this is not a 4-door, but a 2-door Charger.
Even Dodge is gearing up for a transition to electric vehicles, so it’s time to embrace the inevitable. The revolution is to be rechargeable. Of course, that doesn’t mean abandoning the legacy. Dodge, the brand behind Challenger, Charger, Hellcat, Demon and countless other badges, spins electric muscle cars as a bridge between a fully electric future and a hemi-powered past.
The first Dodge electric vehicle, called the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept, will be the brand’s North Star when it surpasses the famous emission-free SRT Hellcat engine. Here’s what we know so far about the new concept and its confirmed production version:
Design and features of Dodge Electric muscle car
The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept looks like a new generation Challenger. It takes classic Challenger proportions and remixes them with new design elements. The show car is available in a new color “Grays of Thunder” that matches its stealthy appearance.
The retro feel of this car aids in this mission. As seen in the teaser image/video and our exclusive renders, its squarish nose mimics that of a classic Charger. A fitting name for an EV, isn’t it? – Late 60’s to 60’s From the golden age of muscle in the early 70’s. It’s Fratzog logo in the triangle from that era is also making a comeback and will appear on all future Dodge electric vehicles. A name muscle has also been rumored, but it’s not yet clear if that will be the name of the new muscle car or if it will be Dodge’s overarching theme.
The Charger Daytona SRT Concept features a radical front wing that Dodge calls the “R-wing”. We are talking about the unique aerodynamic passageway between the headlights, which are barely visible and hidden underneath. Paying homage to the original design of the Charger Daytona, the R-Wing improves the car’s downforce by directing airflow through two vents to the hood and back.
In addition to the double-headed horn headlights, the full width rectangular daytime running lamps and illuminated Fratzog logo are part of the striking front lighting. First introduced by Dodge in 1962, nearly 60 years ago, the return of the three-pointed Fratzog badge marks the beginning of the brand’s zero-emission journey. The vertical slots in the wide lower air intake grille are reminiscent of the 1968 Dodge Charger.
On the side, the Charger Daytona SRT Concept features sleek exterior mirrors, a sloping roofline, large quarter panes that provide rear seat occupants with good surrounding visibility, 21-inch wheels, red Brembo brake calipers and flush door handles. It’s shining., and brushed aluminum “Screaming” Banshee fender badging. The shoulder line rises sharply towards the rear and also drops below the C-pillar.
The rear lights, like the front lights, have a full-width design with an illuminated Fratzog emblem in the center. It may look attractive, but that’s not the main highlight of the back. The topic here is what Dodge calls the “Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust” system. Yes, Dodge added an exhaust pipe to their basically fully battery-powered car.
Dodge says its industry-first, patent-pending exhaust system delivers a performance sound that rivals the gas-powered SRT Hellcat. It hits 126 dB and makes the car as loud as a Dodge with a Hellcat. The screaming Banshee fender badge is no invitation to ridicule the car’s electric powertrain.
Interior design and features of Dodge Electric muscle car
The interior of the Dodge Daytona SRT Concept is modern and highly digital, but with a thoroughly traditional feel. Dodge’s first electric muscle car features a sleek dashboard, a 12.3-inch touchscreen angled 10 degrees toward the driver, a curved 16-inch instrument cluster, an 8 x 3-inch head-up display, and capacitive It features a new steering wheel with touch controls. His SRT logo with lighting and capacitive touch controls on the doors.
The ‘Attitude Controlled Lighting’ ambient lighting system illuminates dynamic textures and underscores the concept’s performance-oriented nature. Sleek, lightweight, race-inspired front seats, panoramic glass roof, race-inspired carbon fiber tub floor and hatch, large cargo area with flat-fold rear seats, performance sound Another notable feature.
Dodge parent company Stellantis has formed a 50/50 joint venture with Foxconn called Mobile Drive to build a digital cockpit. Netherlands-based Mobile Drive develops infotainment, telematics and cloud services platforms. The concept’s infotainment system is an all-new unit developed by Mobile Drive and includes AI, 5G and OTA software updates.
Years after customer delivery, the Dodge EV will be upgraded with new features via over-the-air (OTA) software upgrades. Technically, electric cars remain state-of-the-art. For example, customers can enable the power boost feature or enable permanent performance boosts at any time during their ownership. At Stellantis Software Day 2021, Mamatha Chamartín, SVP – Software Business & Product, spoke about such an opportunity.
Specifications of Dodge Electric muscle car
Dodge electric muscle cars require large battery packs for adequate horsepower and range. So, expect to ride the STLA Large platform, which can accommodate battery packs with a total energy content of 101-118 kWh and offer up to 500 miles of range. The platform allows for powerful electric motors up to 330 kW (442 hp) that engineers can tune for muscle cars.
Trimotor setup of Dodge Electric muscle car
In fact, it can offer much more than that. According to MoparInsiders.com sources, Dodge’s electric muscle car is a Maserati Granturismo that may share a powertrain with Folgore. Maserati has announced that the GranTurismo Folgore will have his three electric motors with over 1,200 horsepower. 0-100km/h acceleration time he is under 3 seconds and top speed is over 186mph.
It is not yet known if the Dodge eMuscle will have similar specs to the GranTurismo. But if so, there’s something really special about the Dodge. In contrast to the Maserati’s sleek exterior, the eMuscle’s boxy design and silhouette limits range and top speed.
Dodge chief Tim Kuniskis said, “If an electric motor makes it fast, we do it.” Are you worried about burning out in secret? Don’t worry, Dodge wants the car to be louder, giving you a muscular sound that intensifies depending on how you drive. created.
F1-inspired suspension of Dodge Electric muscle car
A patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), available at Google Patents, shows Dodge’s electric muscle car features a new F1-inspired pushrod suspension design. Horizontal dampers and active controls are available with coil springs or lateral leaf springs. MoparInsiders.com, quoting Dodge CEO Tim, says Stellantis has patented an innovation in his concept for Dodge’s upcoming electric muscle car. Perhaps the new pushrod suspension is one of his car patents for Dodge’s Electric Muscle.

Production of all current models – Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 L Series – at the Brampton, Ontario assembly plant will end in 2024. Stellantis then converts the factory into an electric car and modernizes the vehicle. The company plans to resume production at this factory in 2025.
The Brampton factory will produce at least one all-new electric model (if production resumes in 2025), Stellantis said in his May 2, 2022 announcement. Charger Daytona SRT Concept.
If the next-generation car is built in Canada, the batteries for the first Dodge electric muscle car could come from a local joint venture lithium-ion battery plant between Stellantis and LG Energy in Windsor, Ontario. Production at the main plant is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2024 (January to March 2024). A total of C$5 billion (US$4 billion) will be invested in the plant.

Pricing of Dodge Electric muscle car
A fair price for a muscle car is between $40,000 and $50,000. So, imagine a production EV muscle car finally entering that zone. At least at first. Like the Hellcat model and the Demon, Dodge pays a premium for more power even when trying to keep his traditional price per dollar.
