Stellantis recently unveiled the new Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept vehicle at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, priming the official debut of the company’s first all-electric muscle car.
The exterior of the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept is covered in Tri-coat Stryker Red paint, with a total of nine unique paint hues and nine different wheel combinations planned for display in conjunction with upgradeable power levels. Carbon fiber wheels and drag radial tires complete the performance look.
Dodge also announced a tiered power system with nine possible powertrain output levels for the all-electric Dodge Charger muscle car concept, including a 400-volt system with a base-level of 455 horsepower, upgradeable to 495 horsepower, 535 horsepower, 590 horsepower, 630 horsepower, and 670 horsepower. Dodge also teased an 800-volt SRT Banshee powertrain package capable of producing much, much more.
Additionally, Dodge is planning on garnering attendee impressions for tuning of the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust, billed as the world’s first BEV exhaust system, and set to add in one of the most commonly cited missing ingredients of a performance EV model.
All told, the new Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept is an interesting take on performance-oriented EVs. Stellantis certainly isn’t shy when it comes to putting an EV spin on the muscle car segment, and appears to know what it takes to make an EV desirable for the performance crowd. As such, this Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept could present a rival for a potential Chevy Camaro EV.
As GM Authority covered previously, the timeframe for discontinuation of the current sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is somewhat fluid, and it remains to be seen how the nameplate will evolve. One potential direction is towards the EV segment, which could prime the Chevy Camaro for some sort of electron-driven muscle car showdown. Maybe.
