Last month, Dodge unveiled the initial teaser images of the upcoming Charger on various social media platforms. According to the most recent information, the debut of the new Charger EV is scheduled for March 5.
This marks the first time the Dodge Charger will feature a fully electric powertrain. Despite this shift, the Charger EV won’t prioritize mileage or achieving low drag coefficients. Matt McAlear, Senior VP of Dodge SRT Global Sales & Marketing, characterizes it as “the next generation of muscle.
The design of the upcoming Charger will draw inspiration from the Charger Daytona concept unveiled in 2022. Recent teasers from the company indicate that the vehicle will maintain many of the design elements. Expect a rectangular front fascia featuring slim LED headlights, an LED light bar, flared wheel arches, and a prominent shoulder line.
The Dodge Charger EV is reportedly built on a 400-volt architecture, while the high-end variant is expected to generate 885 horsepower through an 800-volt architecture. Additionally, there are plans for an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) version, possibly featuring a 6-cylinder engine.
The latest generation Charger concluded production in December of the previous year, with the last unit to roll off the assembly line being a Scat Pack Widebody.
