Dodge, a symbol of classic American muscle cars, is saying goodbye to the traditional combustion engine and is known to be presenting a revolutionary electric muscle car for 2024. The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept, by many already as “Dodge eMuscle“, could pave the way for a new era of Dodge vehicles. Back in July 2021, Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis hinted at a Stellantis future presentation that something big was in the pipeline. And actually, the concept car was presented in August 2022, followed by the first performance data at SEMA 2022. The E-Dodge has nine power levels. The basic version with a 400-volt system delivers 340 kW (462 hp), but with upgrades a hefty 370 kW (503 hp) or even 400 kW (544 hp) are possible.

These include various Drive units and standardized Battery packs, which can be combined to provide front, rear and all-wheel drive.
