Will there be a Dodge Charger EV?
Dodge recently made some headlines when it announced its intent to release an electric vehicle (EV) version of the Dodge Charger. While there’s still some mystery around this vehicle, we have heard some details about it. Below, we’ll highlight what we know about the upcoming EV Dodge Charger, what we expect from it, and how you can get one.
What We Know About a Potential EV Dodge Charger
So far, we know a little bit about what to expect from the EV Dodge Charger. Dodge released an EV Dodge Charger concept called the Daytona SRT, which gives us some information about how this new Charger will differ from previous models.
For starters, Dodge showcased this concept with both 400V and 800V powertrain architectures. With the 400V powertrain, drivers can choose between a 455 or a 590 horsepower option. The 800V powertrain will up the power even further and come with either stage 1 or stage 2 power tunes. Dodge calls this system “Banshee” and previously stated that it would pass the SRT Hellcat engine in terms of performance.
The Daytona SRT concept also features different driving modes, which the driver can select via controls on the steering wheel. Some of these modes are Auto, Sport, Track, and Drag, allowing drivers to get their preferred driving experience with just the push of a button. There’s also a PowerShot button, which gives an instant boost to horsepower.
Finally, the Daytona SRT also features a Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust system. This is essentially an exhaust system that comes with rear amplification, turning what would normally be a quiet EV into a growling muscle car that drivers expect from Dodge. With this exhaust system, the Daytona SRT is easily as loud as the Hellcat engine.
With the Charger Daytona SRT not slated for production until 2024, there’s still time for the above specs to change. However, they should give you a good idea of what you can expect from the Charger EV when it finally releases.
Features To Expect in the EV Dodge Charger
Dodge hasn’t released a full list of features for the EV Dodge Charger yet. However, by looking at other recent Dodge vehicles and other similar EVs, we can make some guesses as to what features it might come with.
For example, the Dodge Charger EV will likely come with a hi-tech infotainment system. Most new vehicles typically have a large touch-screen display in the center of the dashboard, through which you can control vehicle settings, audio, and navigation. You can also expect the Dodge Charger EV to come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integrations, which will make it easy to connect your phone to the entertainment system.
The Daytona SRT will also likely have the latest safety features. Some features you’ll likely see include a blind-spot monitoring system, an external camera, lane-keeping assist, and automated emergency braking.
Finally, expect the Dodge Charger EV to have a luxurious interior similar to that of other Dodge muscle cars. There will be premium materials throughout the cabin, adjustable seats, climate control, and an adjustable steering wheel. If you’ve ever driven a Dodge muscle car before, the experience will likely be very similar to the Dodge Charger EV, with the only change being the powertrain.

Other EVs To Consider
If you don’t want to wait for the EV Dodge Charger, or if you want an EV in the meantime, there are plenty of other options to consider. Some options you may like include the following:
Ford Mustang Mach-E GT
The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is another muscle car that’s all electric. This vehicle comes with all-wheel drive (AWD) and delivers excellent efficiency, getting the equivalent of 100 mpg in the city and 86 on the highway. Some other features you’ll find in the Mustang Mach-E include keyless entry, a navigation system, power seating, a backup camera, and a touch-screen infotainment system.
Consider the Jeep Wrangler if you’re looking for a vehicle that you can take off-road. The Jeep Wrangler offers you several different powertrains, one of which is all electric. A common misconception is that electric powertrains aren’t as powerful, but the Jeep Wrangler proves that wrong. You’ll be able to take your vehicle off the beaten path with ease, thanks in part to its AWD system. With the Jeep Wrangler, you can also remove the roof and sides for more fresh air as you drive.
Ford F-150 Lightning
Finally, if you want a pickup truck, there’s the Ford F-150 Lightning. This pickup has AWD, a 563 horsepower electric engine, a sunroof, and all-terrain tires. Some of the interior features include heated/cooled seats, a navigation system, parking sensors, and a touch-screen infotainment system. You’ll be able to tow and haul a decent amount with the Ford F-150 lighting, as it has a strong enough engine and plenty of room in the truck bed for your belongings.
