Dodge Charger Daytona EV Might Exceed 880 HP

The forthcoming electric variant of the Dodge Charger is anticipated to deliver over 880 horsepower in its highest trim, according to insights shared by an anonymous source.


  • The next-generation Dodge Charger is set to offer an 800-volt electric variant with dual drive units and horsepower exceeding 880.

  • The electric lineup includes three models, with power outputs ranging from 402 to 885 horsepower, and options for both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations.

  • Despite the significant power offered by the electric models, the base gasoline-powered version might still boast a better power-to-weight ratio.


According to an anonymous source cited by The Drive, the next-generation Dodge Charger is expected to make its entry into the electric vehicle (EV) market with its top electric model projected to exceed 880 horsepower. The lineup will include three electric trims: two 400-volt variants and a flagship 800-volt version.

The base electric Charger is anticipated to deliver around 402 horsepower, with a likely rear-wheel-drive (RWD) setup. It’s expected to be more costly than the gasoline variant equipped with the Hurricane inline-six engine, underscoring Dodge’s commitment to electric performance. A mid-tier model, presumably AWD, could ramp up the performance to 670 horsepower, operating on the same 400-volt system.

The spotlight, however, shines on the 800-volt version, which is set to be AWD and boast an impressive 885 horsepower. This high voltage system would require significant current to harness its full potential, putting it in the same league as other high-powered EVs like the Lucid Air Sapphire and Tesla Model S Plaid, which utilize multi-motor configurations.

These power figures are subject to change as they may be refined further before production. Interestingly, the gasoline-powered Charger could potentially maintain a better power-to-weight ratio compared to the lower-tier electric models. Rumors suggest that the standard straight-six Charger will have around 420 horsepower, while a higher-trim gasoline model might offer 510 horsepower, possibly presenting a competitive power-to-weight advantage over the 670-horsepower electric variant.
