Dodge presents its first 100% electric muscle car
Dodge, the American automobile manufacturer, owes its fame to its retro muscle cars Charger and Challenger which use a V6 engine as well as a V8 engine. Everything is managed by an automatic gearbox. However, we are moving towards a healthier world and Joe Biden has many projects for his country, including the mass production of electric vehicles in order to preserve the environment. Moreover, several countries and companies are also moving in this direction.
Car manufacturers have complied and Dodge has even decided to put a cross on its famous hemi engine. It will no longer produce vehicles with combustion engines and will focus on electrifying its range. Moreover, Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge, presented a new concept car called ” Dodge Charger Daytona SRT which is the company’s first all-electric muscle car.
The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT is built to be loud
The builder said: She looks like a Dodge and handles like a Dodge “. This electric Dodge will be powered by the new Banshee 800 V propulsion system. The latter is more powerful than the engine of a Hellcat, which is already a high-performance variant of the Challenger. Elsewhere, the electric Dodge will also feature standard 400V electrical systems.
The company also installed an exhaust on the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT, although it doesn’t need one and the only thing it makes is sound. The exhaust emits a 126 dB roar that is equivalent to the SRT Hellcat. The car’s sounds are pushed through an amplifier and tuning chamber.
What about the design of the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT?
The electric Dodge Charger has two doors and represents a futuristic version of the gas-powered Challenger and Charger. Indeed, the “R-Wing” at the front recalls that of the Charger Daytona 1969 ½ which was the first to reach the speed of 322 km/h.
As a reminder, the R-Wing is a large opening intended for the passage of air. The car’s interior is enhanced with modern amenities including a 12.3-inch center screen and a PowerShot button on the steering wheel that gives the vehicle a burst of acceleration.
