2024 Dodge Charger arrives with all-electric options


Dodge has revealed the 8th-gen Charger lineup—which includes all-electric models—billed as the world’s first and only electric muscle cars. Production begins in mid-2024 with two-door coupe versions of all-electric 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack and 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T. Production of four-door Daytona Scat Pack and R/T models, gas-powered two-door Dodge Charger SIXPACK H.O. and four-door Dodge Charger SIXPACK S.O. scheduled to start in Q1 2025. The inclusion of two-door models means that there won’t be the Challenger anymore.

Both two- and four-door models feature clean and fuss-free styling. The front fascia features a light bar connecting the J-shaped running lights, and if you look at the top-down view, you’ll notice that there’s a pass-through area called R-Wing—which is claimed to be patent-pending. Fender badging identifies the respective Charger Daytona Scat Pack and R/T models, and there are 9 new wheels featuring center caps and the Fratzog logo:


18-by-8-inch Tech Silver wheels are standard for Daytona R/T and 20-by-11-inch Satin Carbon wheels come standard on Daytona Scat Pack. Wheel options include 20-by-10-inch Black Noise wheels with the available Blacktop Package and 20-by-11/11.5-inch Luster wheels with Track Package.

At the rear, the 2024 Charger features “ring of fire” LED taillights, and a patent-pending Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust system that is claimed to offer a unique sound compared to other BEVs. The system uses two passive radiators to create a unique exhaust profile with Hellcat levels of sound intensity that shatters the preconception of a typical quiet BEV, the company says. Sound intensity is tied to higher performance, with a stealth sound mode also available.

Key features inside depending on the variant include a 10.25-inch or optional 16-inch cluster screen, a 12.3-inch central touchscreen, wireless CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, 64-color ambient lighting, a “pistol-grip” shifter, and 9-speaker or optional 18-speaker Alpine audio systems. An AR head-up display can also be found in the options list. The Uconnect 5 touchscreen displays Performance Pages with key performance metrics such as timers, gauges, g-force, and propulsion system information. Cloth and leatherette seats are standard, but there are optional packages including Carbon & Suede Package.


Buyers of the Charger Daytona Scat Pack with Track Package can spend more by opting for the dual-valve semi-active suspension; the Adaptive Damping suspension utilizes dual valves (one for compression and one for rebound), three times the number of body accelerometers, four times the wheel-hub accelerometers and four times the ride height sensors from the outgoing Charger, allowing for more damping force in handling scenarios, a smoother ride over rough roads and a wider range of personalization in each Drive Mode, the company said. The Track Package can be upgraded with massive 16-inch Brembo vented rotors and red 6-piston front/4-piston rear fixed calipers.


The all-electric Charger Daytona models feature a 400-volt architecture. As you can see from the rendering above, both front and rear axles get an EDM (an electric drive module incorporating an inverter, a gearbox and a motor), with each EDM capable of generating up to 250 kW (340 metric hp) and 407 Nm (300 lb-ft).

However, the Charger Daytona R/T arrives with 370 kW (496 bhp/503 metric hp) while the Daytona Scat Pack is delivered with 500 kW (670 bhp/680 metric hp). In addition, the PowerShot mode (standard on Charger Daytona Scat Pack and R/T models) delivers a 30 kW (40 bhp/41 metric hp) boost for 15 seconds at the press of a button on the steering wheel.

A 100.5 kWh battery pack features prismatic cells, and is estimated to deliver a range of up to 260 miles (418 km) in the Charger Daytona Scat Pack and 317 miles (510 km) in the Charger Daytona R/T. The battery pack can be DC fast-charged with up to 350 kW.

For those who prefer old-school performance, the Charger SIXPACK H.O. will be available with a 410 kW (550 bhp/558 metric hp) 3.0L straight-six twin-turbo petrol engine. The same engine will be available with 313 kW (420 bhp/426 metric hp) in the Charger SIXPACK S.O.

A few more powertrain options might join at a later date.
