First Electric Muscle Car Added to Dodge’s Charger Line-up

Dodge has made a groundbreaking move by introducing the first-ever electric muscle car in its Charger line-up, unveiling the 2024 Charger models on Tuesday. The highlight of the reveal is the 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack, hailed as the “world’s first and only electric muscle car.” This powerful electric vehicle boasts an impressive 670 horsepower, accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds, solidifying its position as the fastest and most potent muscle car globally. Not only that, but it also sets a new record for muscle cars with a quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.5 seconds and offers an estimated range of 260 miles.

In addition to the Charger Daytona Scat Pack, Dodge also introduced another all-electric model to the Charger lineup, the Charger Daytona R/T. This model features 496 horsepower and an estimated range of 317 miles. The charging capabilities of these electric vehicles are equally impressive, with the Daytona Scat Pack able to charge at an estimated 8.1 miles per minute and the Daytona R/T at 9.9 miles per minute when utilizing a 350-kW fast charger.

Tim Kuniskis, CEO of the Dodge brand, expressed excitement about the electrified 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack, stating, “We’re bringing Charger Hellcat Redeye performance levels to the forefront, marked by the world’s first Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust. Meanwhile, our Hurricane engine-powered Dodge Charger Sixpack models provide the Brotherhood of Muscle with a gasoline option, delivering superior horsepower and torque figures compared to the outgoing 5.7- and 6.4-liter HEMI engines.”

The Charger’s Scat Pack and R/T editions come equipped with advanced infotainment systems featuring a 12.3-inch touchscreen, customizable tabs for easy access to media services like SiriusXM, TomTom navigation, Amazon Alexa, and more. An optional augmented head-up display is also available, providing a wide field of view with enhanced virtual image distance. These new Charger variants feature 16-inch and 10.25-inch instrument clusters, respectively, offering a modern and user-friendly driving experience.

The introduction of the electric muscle cars in the 2024 Dodge Charger lineup marks a significant step towards sustainable and high-performance vehicles in the automotive industry. Dodge fans and muscle car enthusiasts can look forward to experiencing the power and innovation that these electric models bring to the table.
