New Details on the Dodge eMuscle Car

New Details on the Dodge eMuscle Car

Finally, during Dodge Speed Week in August, more details were revealed about the much-anticipated eMuscle car.  We were promised something major, and Dodge delivered.  The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept was immediately embraced by audiences at the event and around the internet.

 

The concept embraces the future while simultaneously paying homage to the brand’s muscle car history.  The design was inspired by the 1968 Dodge Charger, with some modern touches to bring it into this electrified era.

 

The hatch on the back of the two-door coupe provides more space than is normally associated with muscle.  More room in the back seat adds some comfort.  Does that make it a family car?  Probably not, but it certainly adds an air of practicality we weren’t expecting.

 

One of the things that makes a muscle car so appealing to a certain crowd is the noise.  If you’re driving muscle you want the whole neighbourhood to know you’re on your way.  How could an electric car possibly live up to those expectations?

 

One of the new details on the Dodge eMuscle car is an exhaust system that produces sounds from the rear of the car meant to remind drivers of a Hemi V-8.  It was referred to as a Banshee by Dodge at the unveiling.  That can only mean one thing: this car is loud and unashamed of it.

 

Dodge hasn’t confirmed a release date for the Charger Daytona SRT yet, but they claim that everything in the vehicle is producible.  Canadian factories are being converted to facilitate EV manufacturing as we speak.  Which means we’re hopeful that this beauty will be seen (and heard) on Canadian roads in the not-too-distant future.
