American Dodge is not going to say goodbye to the Challenger and Charger gasoline muscle cars after 2024. According to musclecarsandtrucks.com, the up-and-coming electric muscle car will not replace these models, but complement them.
Interestingly, judging by the reaction of the brand’s fans, the news of the electrification of the classic line of muscle cars has disappointed the audience. And some especially negative people predicted the death of the legendary V8 after 2024.
However, now all doubts on this score have been dispelled. The head of Dodge noted that the appearance of the first electric muscle car in 2024 does not mean the quick death of the traditional internal combustion engines of the brand, which are very popular with buyers. Moreover, the brand’s management is well aware of people’s reluctance to switch to an electric engine, so Dodge is confident that they will lose part of their loyal audience, but hope that for the most part they will retain their fan base.
However, Dodge will eventually ditch petrol cars. In addition, the future electric muscle car may well demonstrate much more impressive performance than cars with classic internal combustion engines. It is likely that the manufacturer will have to jump over his head to convince conservative citizens that the electric car can be a worthy replacement for the multi-liter V8.
Recall that earlier it became known some details about the first hybrid crossover Dodge, which may receive the historical name Hornet and share the platform with the upcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale.
