Dodge wants to make way for electric cars

Dodge will stop production of its gasoline-powered Charger sedan and Challenger Coupe in 2024 to make way for the automaker's first electric vehicle.

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis referred to that schedule in an interview this week.

The company will launch its first electric vehicle in 2022, followed by an all-electric hybrid and a third mystery car.

Dodge had earlier announced at an event in July that it would produce its first electric car in 2024, covering parent company Stellantis' electric vehicle strategy.

At the event, Kuniskis announced that Dodge would not sell electric cars, but rather eMuscle, which is clearly the brand for electric Dodge cars of the future. Production of the first eMuscle cars will begin in 2024.

At that time, Kuniskiss did not provide any information about the fate of the company's internal combustion engine.

As we all know, if the company shifts its resources to making electric cars, the company may be phased out. “The cars you know today will gradually stop in 2024,” Kuniskis said.

The futuristic Dodge electric car bears the Fratzog logo, which the company first used in the 1960s and 1970s.

The logo has three triangular shapes arranged in an equilateral triangle to form a three-pointed star. The new version is designed with 3D technology and includes LED lighting.

In addition to the electric version of the Charger and Challenger, Dodge also plans to produce electric trucks, including the battery-powered Ram 1500, similar to the future Ford F-150 Lightning.

Dodge's sister companies such as Jeep and Chrysler as well as the PSA Groupe brand also produce electric cars.

It's unclear how high-performance car enthusiasts will react to the news that the Hemi engine is still a long way off.

Electric cars have no problem with acceleration. Many electric sports cars accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers faster than most cars with similar fuel consumption. However, the difference between them is the sound of acceleration - or more precisely, no sound.
