Electric Muscle Cars By Dodge
The transition from ICE cars to electric cars was expected for a long time, but within a few months, we have seen a lot of new vehicles with all-electric versions. This change is happening faster than expected. Some big automotive companies are already switching towards all-electric cars. These automakers have said they will have fully electric vehicles by 2030 or maybe earlier. The future is here. If we are saying this, it means technology has taken over everything. Well, that is true, the technology introduced an ICE car, and now advanced technology has introduced electric cars. With the launch of the electric sports car, it was defined that the future is here.
It is believed that Dodge will introduce the electric concept car of any of the two muscle cars in the upcoming weeks. This new electric car will be a 2-door BEV. It is anticipated that Dodge will most probably introduce the electric Challenger. The new EV will replace the ICE Challenger and find a new place under the category of an electric muscle car. Earlier, Ford released Mustang Mach E. Although it is not a muscle car, it came under the badge of the iconic Mustang. The arrival of electric muscle cars will not end the Hemi V8 engine-powered cars. Dodge will still sell the ICE cars.
History Of The Two Iconic Cars
Let’s talk about the Dodge Charger first, as it was the first muscle car of Dodge. Charger was first produced in 1966, and it is still under production. It was a huge hit in the market in the 60s and 70s as Dodge introduced a powerful machine. This Beast came with a 5.2-Liter V8 engine with an optional automatic transmission back in the 1960s. Although it didn’t gain much popularity in the first year of release, Charger managed to be one of the finest muscle cars over time.
On the other hand, Dodge Challenger’s production started in 1969 and is still in production. This muscle car by Dodge was a competition to Plymouth Barracuda, and eventually, it competed with the iconic Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Initially, the Challenger was available with the 7.0-Liter V8 Hemi engine, with options of various other powerful engines. Indubitably, it is one of the best muscle cars ever produced.
The two iconic muscle cars by Dodge are getting electrified, and it seems that the era of ICE cars is near the end. Although, Dodge has confirmed that the Hemi V8-powered Challenger and Charger will also be sold alongside the electric versions. We will be covering up the reveal of both the launches.
