Dodge’s Next Big Project Is An All-Electric Performance-Focused Muscle Car

Jul 8, 2021

Over the last few years, it’s become abundantly clear that electric drivetrains represent the future of high-performance vehicles, with today’s proton-powered motors affording speed and power figures far superior to those of gas-engined machines. And, despite the brand’s identity being rooted in American muscle, Dodge has always strived to remain at the forefront of the performance automotive world. So, while it may sound unlikely, Dodge has now announced that it will be developing what it is touting as “the world’s first full battery electric muscle car.”

Though this obviously means venturing into uncharted territory for the American marque, the company says its proton-powered muscle cars will still be quintessential Dodge muscle cars, with a primary focus on tire-shredding power and performance. As Dodge has put it, the brand won’t sell electric cars, it will sell what it’s calling “American eMUSCLE.” Thus far, the manufacturer has revealed very little about this forthcoming model, though it does appear that it will be styled as a modern interpretation of a classic muscle car, likely the Challenger or perhaps even a reinterpretation of the original Charger. Dodge’s electric muscle car is scheduled for a release in 2024. For more info, you can check out the promo video below.
