Here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow, we have long known that electrification was veering at us quickly, and now that the time is here, we are counting the many benefits these perfectly engineered models will feature! Competition is tight between brands, as manufacturers are now having to keep up with numerous demands to be the best on many levels. The Dodge Charger EV has been built from the ground up to still be just as fantastic as its gas-powered predecessor, and the Hotcars.com team had a few warnings for Tesla’s EV-market status.
The Ice Challenger and Charger series have come to an end, and the all-electric Dodge Charger Daytona SRT is slated to stare the Tesla S directly in the eye and throw down. When the demise of the gas-powered models was announced, many mourned what then seemed like the end of the fun, loud, and always thrilling power of V8 muscle models roaring through the night. When the Charger Daytona EV concept was revealed, it unleashed the full potential of the electric Banshee powertrain, which will render the model to be even faster than the Hellcat in terms of performance.
The Dodge Charger Daytona EV will have more speed, power, and acceleration than the 797-horsepower Challenger Hellcat Redeye, and perhaps even more than the fire-breathing 808-horsepower Dodge Demon. It is drop-dead, mind-blowingly amazing to think that this may permanently remove the kingly title of the Dodge Demon as the fastest car Dodge has ever built. The notion that a 0-60 mph time under two seconds may be the result is enough to sway even the most dedicated gas-engine purist, and give the all-electric model a solid chance.
The Dodge Daytona SRT EV has the visual essence down pat, and has most definitely accomplished the looks of a very sweet Dodge muscle car. An R-Wing pays tribute up front to the original 1969 Dodge Daytona and the Fratzog badge, which was worn by lightning-fast Dodge numbers from 1962-1976. Here it is quite important to note that sales of the Tesla Model S sank drastically during 2022, more than likely stroking their inspiration to change things up appropriately. These two EVs are both exemplary within their own rights, but the Model S’s very high price tag may be an issue.
We also recognize that while many are eager and ready to accept electrification as the new norm, anything new can be hard to accept. There may be altercations, there may be major changes, and there may be some fast-approaching forks in the road, but we are certain that you’re going to be thoroughly engaged during every mile driven with the new breed of Dodge high-performance vehicles. While browsing the web we have spotted one very viral and resilient meme which still rings true to us now: “Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy a Dodge Charger or Challenger, and really, what’s the difference?!”
