The Dodge stand at the SEMA Show showcases the brand’s performance models, including the upcoming electric Charger that was unveiled earlier in August.

Despite having been revealed to the public only a few months ago, the Charger Daytona SRT Concept was treated to a number of updates ahead of its appearance in Las Vegas.

These include a new paint colour called Stryker Red and 18-inch Carbon-fiber wheels that will be available through the Direct Connection catalogue of performance upgrades.

According to the automaker, there will be nine exterior colours as well as nine different wheel options to choose from when this model reaches its first customers in 2024 or 2025.

Under the hood, the performance EV will be available with three standard power levels, which will each be available with a stage 1 or stage 2 upgrade from Direct Connection.

The entry-level electric charger will be equipped with a 400-volt battery that will allow an output of 455 horsepower. The stage one option will up to power to 495 horsepower and the stage 2 upgrade will result in 535 horsepower under the driver’s right foot.

The second factory output of 590 horsepower will be achieved with the same battery and its stage 1 and 2 Direct Connection upgrades will allow it to deliver 630 horsepower or 670 horsepower respectively.

Dodge has yet to announce the power figures for the most powerful factory version called Banshee, but it has revealed that this model will use an 800-volt battery architecture. As with the other two factory power levels, stage 1 and 2 upgrades will be available.

The company has also said it will perform a number of customer clinics at the SEMA Show in order to fine-tune the “Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust” according to feedback from the public.

This technology will give the electric Charger a sound similar to a traditional V8 engine, which Dodge claims is a key part of the muscle car experience.
