Dodge will Sell Electric and Petrol-Powered Muscle Cars Side by Side

It’s unclear what the new Dodge EV muscle car will be it’s clear that it will join the Charger and Challenger in the showroom


  • The performance EV is expected by 2024.

  • ICE muscle cars will last until 2024 and possibly a little longer.

  • This is the Dodge way.


Dodge’s chief executive Tim Kuniskis has confirmed that the teased electric muscle car during last July’s Stellantis EV Day 2021 will be sold alongside the current crop of ICE muscle cars.

Dodge Electric Muscle Car Coming For 2024 Amid Wave of Stellantis EVs

Dodge is in a similar position that Porsche was a little over two years. At the time, the German sports car brand was concerned that its fans and followers would not join them on their journey to electrification. As we know, they’re very much on board. This time, it’s Dodge that fears that its brand enthusiasts will be turned off by electrification.

“The reception that I’ve gotten from customers… when you make a big change, there’s going to be people that just aren’t going to follow you, at least initially,” Kuniskis said. “But a lot of those people will return eventually when they see we’re serious, and we’re going to be Dodge first.”

Dodge’s plan is to introduce the new EV muscle car and showcase it flanked by the current beloved Challenger and Charger. This way, comparisons will be made, and by all accounts, the “new” muscle car will surely be superior in all ways but noise.

“The new platform comes in 2024,” Kuniskis confirmed, as reported by Carscoops. “The new car comes in 2024. We didn’t say that the current cars are going to die in 2024. There might be a little overlap, but you’re not going to have years and years and years of the classic and the new one at the same time.”
