Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept EV
The Chrysler LX platform has underpinned the 300, Charger, and Challenger for 16 years, making it the longest-running automobile platform in history. With the LX-based vehicles finally reaching the end of their production life, Dodge is turning over a new leaf with the Charger Daytona, a thinly-disguised EV concept that is all but ready for production. The Daytona is powered by an 800-volt electrical system with all-wheel-drive and an "eRupt" electro-mechanical transmission that emulates traditional shift points. A "Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust" makes up for the EV's inherent lack of an exhaust note by blasting a "performance sound" at up to 126dB, equaling the SRT Hellcat's V8 rumble. Dodge didn't release specs for the new Daytona but promises better performance than the Hellcat and features like a steering wheel-mounted push-to-pass button.
