Dodge announces insane Charger Daytona SRT electric car
The muscle car drives like a Dodge, looks like a Dodge and feels like a Dodge, but it's also electric. The international concern Stellantis has announced new products from the Dodge brand. One of the most interesting was the Charger Daytona SRT electric car. The name refers to the legendary Charger Daytona, which in 1970 became the first car to hit 200 mph on a NASCAR track.
The appearance of the car is made in the style of classic muscle cars. The grille detailing is reminiscent of that of the classic 1968 Dodge Charger. Illuminated Fratzog badges on the grille and taillights symbolize the American company's electrified future.
The Charger Daytona SRT Concept is based on three unique Dodge patented technologies:
1) R-Wing: This is an aerodynamic front wing that has a unique profile that increases the overall aerodynamic efficiency.
2) Fratzonic Exhaust: The industry's first EV exhaust system to deliver a sound that rivals the SRT Hellcat.
3) eRupt: multi-speed transmission with electromechanical shifting.
"The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept exists because the electric agenda forced us to do it. Dodge is all about muscle, attitude and performance. The brand carries this philosophy on its shoulder and into the electric vehicle segment through a concept filled with innovation and great performance that embodies the electrified muscle cars of tomorrow. The Charger Daytona SRT Concept is capable of not only posing on the podium, but also a lightning-fast quarter-mile race. The Charger Daytona not only defines where Dodge is heading, it also reimagines American muscle cars,"stated Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis
The electric car is based on an 800-volt architecture that allows you to quickly charge the battery. Unfortunately, the capacity of the power plant has not yet been disclosed. But it is known that it was called Banshee, and the car itself has four-wheel drive.
Another American company has confirmed that next year will be the last for the gasoline Charger and Challenger. From 2024, new generations of these models will be exclusively electric.
