It seems that the days of proud American muscle cars with powerful V-8 engines

growling exhausts will soon slide gracefully into the past. 

The Dodge Charger and Challenger models will bow out for the last time after 2023

electric models are also encroaching on classic nameplates like the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang.

Dodge doesn't want you to mourn a muscle car.

The new Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept is an electric performance coupe that will continue Dodge's bold legacy and become "the future of electrified muscle."

the heart of the Daytona SRT model is its 800-volt electrical architecture,

dubbed the Banshee. That's twice the voltage of the 400-volt architecture used by many other EVs and allows for faster charging

better cooling of the electric motors, and lighter wiring. The Porsche Taycan, Audi e-tron GT, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 also use 800-volt architectures

While Dodge has yet to share any performance or powertrain details for the concept, it says the Daytona

SRT will be faster than its Hellcat V-8 cousins ​​"in all key performance metrics.

" We assume this means both acceleration and top speed. FYI, the 2023 Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye with

the Jailbreak package has a whopping 807 horsepower, and the Redeye we tested hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. A pushable PowerShot button will provide a temporary power boost.

It will also get six-piston brakes and regenerative braking will certainly be incorporated.
