Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept EV unveiled

The concept also brings back the three-pointed Fratzog badge, originally used on Dodge muscle cars between 1962 and 1967.

Dodge has taken the wraps off its all-new electric muscle car concept in the form of the Charger Daytona SRT. Dodge hasn't revealed any specific details of the Charger Daytona SRT concept's powertrain. However, the company claims that it will be faster than the Hellcat.

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept takes inspiration from the brand's iconic Charger models from 1968 to 1970. The two-door electric muscle car concept comes with a front wing, allowing air to pass through the front grille and over the bulging bonnet, enhancing both downforce and aerodynamic performance. The car also features large 21-inch diamond-cut alloys, flush-fitting door handles and full-width LED light bars, both at the front and rear. The concept also brings back the three-pointed Fratzog badge, originally used on Dodge muscle cars between 1962 and 1967.

The new Charger Daytona SRT concept is also said to "sound like a Dodge", with its Fratzonic Chambered exhaust, which puts out 126 dB of computer-generated V8 exhaust note. This would make the EV as loud as a 717 BHP supercharged Charger SRT Hellcat. The gimmicks continue with what Dodge calls 'eRupt Transmission' on the Daytona SRT concept. This tech would require drivers to 'change gears' at predefined shift points, giving a more Dodge-style driving experience.

Other interior features include a 16-inch curved digital display, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, plenty of exposed carbon-fibre elements all around, a large panoramic glass roof and lightweight racing seats, among others.
