The Dodge Charger has been an iconic vehicle within the Fast & Furious films since they first arrived in theaters back in 2001. So not surprisingly, the recently debuted Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee Concept will be making an appearance in the upcoming addition to the series titled Fast-X.
The Fast and The Furious films have always been known for their action sequences coupled with every possible mode of transportation imaginable, including high-performance supercars, airplanes, tanks, submarines, and muscle cars. So naturally, an eMuscle car would be the next item on their list as it’s something they haven’t featured before. Among the vehicles spotted on set in the Los Angeles neighborhood, Angelino Heights, was the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee EV. However, according to Power Nation, it wasn’t the only EV concept car spotted on the set, as there also appears to be a Delorean Alpha5 concept, as seen by its signature gullwing door.

Dodge Daytona SRT Banshee: Details
The Dodge Daytona SRT Banshee concept features Dodge’s new Banshee propulsion system, which joins high-horsepower household names like Hemi, Hellcat, and Redeye. The 800V Banshee powertrain in this Dodge Charger Daytona EV concept car screams performance, making Dodge’s first electric vehicle faster than a Hellcat in all key performance measures. Though exact numbers have not yet been revealed, rumors are that the Tesla Model S Plaid is the target. After all, this is a concept vehicle, so we’ll have to wait a bit before we find out how the Banshee overtakes the Hellcat.
The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee Concept features a standard all-wheel-drive system which is key to pushing beyond Hellcat performance while improving all-weather capability. But with AWD, there’s more traction to propel the vehicle forward. The concept also boasts a PowerShot push-to-pass feature which can be activated by pushing a button on the steering wheel. The feature delivers an adrenaline jolt of increased horsepower. Essentially, a nitro boost for an electric vehicle which we may see featured in the upcoming Fast & Furious movie.
