2024 DODGE CHARGER EV MUSCLE CAR DESIGN TEASED IN SLIDES

It seemed like only yesterday that Dodge was hinting at a future with some dose of electrification. The idea is that adding some batteries to the equation would act as a power adder to improve overall performance of the vehicle. Look no further than the 470 lb-ft Jeep Wrangler 4xe as an example. Or, across town, the 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost hybrid pickup truck, with a class-leading 570 lb-ft. Then FCA and PSA formed Stellantis, and it’s starting to feel like The Brotherhood of Muscle and the high-octane Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger muscle cars might cease to exist as we know it.

Look no further than last week’s Stellantis EV Day presentation, which notes that the newly formed automaker will earmark a whopping $25 billion dollars from now until 2025, just to build EVs. That’s unlikely to leave room for much else in the budget. And, the longer you watched the presentation, the more you realized that every brand, even Dodge, cannot escape the gravity of EV mandates. That being said, were are given a few clues as to what we can expect for the next-generation, all electric 2024 Dodge Charger.

We’re calling it a Dodge Charger, because as Tim Kuniskis says, “if a charger can make a Charger quicker, we’re in.” The second clue is that the vehicle teased in the video, showing an electric AWD muscle car with a reborn fratzog emblem, is loaded with Charger throwback styling cues.

The upcoming 2024 Dodge Charger EV will ride on the new STLA Large platform, which will deliver around 500 miles in estimated range thanks to its ample size to fit more battery packs. Output on STLA Large platform vehicles will range from 150 kW to 330 kW (201 hp – 442 hp), and between 400 volts to 800 volts. This power output will likely range based on the amount of motors the vehicle uses. The STLA Large platform will also underpin a Dodge SUV, presumed to be the Hornet. The outlines of the Dodge Hornet EV and Dodge Charger EV can be seen below, traced with red lines. The Ram EV is at the top, traced in blue. A Jeep EV is traced in green.

Dodge is hoping to leverage the openness to electrification and “spending power” of its strong millennial demographic in hopes to sell the 2024 Dodge Charger EV and other future electric performance products. Whether or not Dodge’s strong millennial audience is the same sub-demographic that’s willing to adopt electrification is something that only time will tell.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.

    1. I dont think the covered car is the 2024 charger (I believe its a face lifted 2022). Even the teaser images are all over the place and the charger one doesnt match the 4 wheel burnout one that had a very squared off 68 charger face. The STLA large platform was just made recently so cars will have to be built around it, Gilles said these platforms open up lots of doors for design. My theory is the outline teasers were just the FCA charger that was going to use an updated LX platform but that has since drastically changed.
