The year 2024 marks a groundbreaking chapter in the evolution of muscle cars, as Dodge unveils the highly anticipated 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona EV. Contrary to industry speculations, Dodge takes a bold stance by not segregating electric and combustion power but rather embracing both in the Charger lineup. The Charger Daytona EV, with its cutting-edge technology and unbridled power, solidifies Dodge's commitment to redefine the modern muscle car.

Electric Power and Unmatched Performance

Electric Power and Unmatched Performance

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis passionately asserts that the Charger Daytona is a muscle car, irrespective of its power source. The electric iteration of the Charger Daytona boasts an impressive performance, with the least powerful version delivering up to 496 horsepower. For those seeking an extra adrenaline rush, a 670-hp variant is also available, both propelling power to all four wheels. The combustion-powered Chargers, carrying the "Sixpack" branding, enter production next year with robust options of 420 hp or 550 hp.

Dodge claims the 2024 Charger Daytona to be the quickest and most powerful muscle car globally, excluding the upcoming 800-volt Banshee. The R/T and Scat Pack trims, equipped with a 100.5-kilowatt-hour battery pack, offer exhilarating performance. The Charger Daytona accelerates to 100 kmh in a mere 3.3 seconds and conquers the quarter-mile in an impressive 11.5 seconds, setting a new benchmark in muscle car prowess.

Built on Stellantis' STLA Large platform, the Charger Daytona exhibits a near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Weighing in at 5,838 pounds, the Daytona tackles its heft with the largest tire package ever seen on a factory Charger. The Scat Pack, with its Track Package, features 20-inch wheels, 305/35-series tires in front, and substantial 325s at the rear. A mechanical limited-slip differential in the rear electric drive module enhances traction, while a wheel end disconnect in the front improves range and efficiency.

The Charger Daytona impresses not only with its raw power but also its range capabilities. The R/T boasts an impressive 317-mile range, while the Scat Pack manages 260 miles between charges. Fast-charging capabilities allow for a rapid refill, taking the battery from 20 to 80 percent in approximately 27 minutes.

The Charger Daytona Scat Pack introduces the "PowerShot" button, providing a 40-hp boost from the electric motors for 15 seconds, reminiscent of nitrous-oxide systems in traditional gas-powered cars. With a 30-second cooldown between presses, this feature adds an element of exhilaration to an already potent muscle car.

Interior and Design

The Charger Daytona showcases a fusion of digital innovation and analog-inspired swagger. With a digital screen ranging from 10.25 to 16 inches, a 12.3-inch center display, and a pistol-grip shift handle reminiscent of the 1968 Charger, the interior pays homage to its iconic predecessor. A full-length glass roof, optional heads-up display, and customizable "Attitude Adjustment" interior lighting enhance the driving experience. The spacious liftback design provides 22.7 cubic feet of cargo space, expandable to 37.3 cubic feet with folded rear seats, along with a frunk offering an additional 1.5 cubic feet of storage.

The 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona EV signals a new era for muscle cars, blending electric power with the raw, unbridled strength that defines the Charger legacy. With innovative technology, uncompromising performance, and a design that pays homage to its iconic heritage, the Charger Daytona EV stands poised to captivate enthusiasts and set new standards in the ever-evolving landscape of high-performance vehicles. Dodge's commitment to pushing the boundaries of what a muscle car can achieve is evident in every detail of the Charger Daytona EV, making it a true force to be reckoned with on the road.
