The Hellcat will be gone for good after 2023.
An all-electric Dodge Muscle Car concept to arrive in 2022.
The end of the current golden era of muscle cars is near.
We now have a date or at least a clear timeline. If you’ve not signed away a chunk of change for a new Hellcat-powered Dodge vehicle by the end of 2023, you’ll be too late. Once this period has passed, Dodge will move on the new platforms and powertrains of the electric persuasion.
The next 24 months will be extremely exciting. So far, as part of Dodge’s 24 Months of Muscle, we’ve seen the revival of a performance part program and, most recently, the introduction of the 2022 Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak iterations.
Part of the program will be the official reveal of an all-electric muscle car concept which was teased a little while back during Stellantis’ 2021 EV Day event. According to Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis, as reported by Motor Authority, the concept will be a fully functioning driving mule.
Other introductions planned for 2022 include a new PHEV vehicle not based on any current vehicle. Another reveal will occur next week and the only thing that is known for sure is that it will not, sadly, be a Hellcat-powered Chrysler Pacifica.
