Dodge threw a curveball with the announcement of their new Charger, a muscle car with both electric and gasoline options.

News has been limited since the reveal, but a recent camouflaged prototype spotted in Michigan hints they’re close to launch.

The test car sported a sleek black paint job, Y-spoke alloy wheels, and Brembo brakes, all in black. High-performance tires were absent, suggesting handling wasn’t the priority during this particular test.

Customer deliveries are expected later this year, with initial reports leaning towards a surprising trend: more interest in the gasoline-powered models compared to the electric Daytona.

This could indicate a shift in consumer EV enthusiasm, even for high-performance electric vehicles. Hitting the ground running in 2025, the Dodge Charger Daytona throws down the gauntlet as the first electric muscle car.

Ditching the classic Hemi V8 rumble, the Daytona delivers a whisper-quiet punch. The base R/T packs a respectable 496 horsepower, but the Scat Pack steals the show with a jaw-dropping 670 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque.

Rumors swirl about an even wilder future model with an 800-volt system and potentially four-digit horsepower figures, aiming to take the high-performance crown. While the Daytona marks Dodge’s electric future, the brand isn’t saying goodbye to gas just yet.

The 2025 Charger offers a last hurrah for V8 fans with a 3.0L twin-turbo six-cylinder option, signaling the end of the V8 era for this iconic car.

This shift leaves the Ford Mustang as the sole survivor clinging to V8 power in the new generation of muscle cars, with all eyes on how Chevrolet will respond with the upcoming Camaro.

The electric Charger Daytona’s fate remains unwritten, but one thing is certain: it’s an innovation that’s generating a lot of excitement.
