Dodge will launch an all-electrical muscle automobile in 2024. The announcement was element of a presentation Thursday covering mother or father Stellantis’ general electrification technique.

The muscle automobile will trip 1 of 4 new EV platforms. No other information have been supplied, and even the announcement itself was a bit puzzling, with Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis saying the brand will not “promote electrical cars—it will promote eMuscle.” Meanwhile, a Stellantis press release debuted a slogan for Dodge’s electrified long term: “Tear up the streets…Not the planet.”

The Dodge EV could be a substantial-functionality successor to today’s Hellcat-powered Challenger and Charger versions. For the duration of the presentation, Kuniskis mentioned engineers “are reaching a useful restrict of what we can squeeze from inner-combustion innovation,” and indicated Dodge will search to electrical motors for extra functionality.

Dodge also developed a video that it showed on social media touting the automobile. A clip at the finish demonstrates what Dodge calls a notion automobile undertaking what seems to be a 4-wheel burnout, indicating the automobile will have all-wheel drive. We will not get a great ample search at the automobile to see what it seems like, and we will not know that it in fact represents what will be constructed.

Whilst Dodge has come to be defined by its V-eight muscle vehicles, a switch to electrical energy tends to make sense, if the brand is actually severe about continuing to enhance functionality and compete in a increasing electrical motor vehicle market place.

A fast YouTube search will pull up numerous examples of Hellcat-powered vehicles getting humiliated by Teslas at the dragstrip, a testament to the EV’s instantaneously accessible torque. Rimac, which is poised to consider above Bugatti, has proven the functionality prospective of EVs with its electrical supercars.

Electrification was not a priority for Dodge’s preceding mother or father firm, Fiat Chrysler Vehicles (FCA). The only all-electrical model FCA offered in the U.S. was the Fiat 500e, and that was only completed to comply with California’s zero-emissions motor vehicle mandate. CEO Sergio Marchionne complained that FCA misplaced funds on each 500e offered.

Nonetheless, the merger with France’s PSA Group to type Stellantis has modified factors. PSA took electrical vehicles far more critically to FCA, and the French automaker’s influence appears to be spreading to the former FCA manufacturers.

In addition to the Dodge electrical muscle automobile, the Stellantis presentation uncovered that Ram will get a total-dimension battery-electrical motor vehicle by 2024. The automaker mentioned it expects “lower-emission cars” to make forty% of its U.S. revenue by 2030. That most likely involves hybrids and plug-in hybrids alongside all-electrical vehicles.
