Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept EV Packs 'Banshee' Power And Retro Styling


The future of electric muscle cars is here, arriving in the form of the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept.

Unveiled during the third day of the Dodge Speed Week event in Pontiac, Michigan, the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept is unlike any other Dodge before it and rocks a new powertrain dubbed Banshee. Dodge says this powertrain acts as the new pinnacle of performance in the Brotherhood of Muscle, eclipsing the Hemi, Hellcat, and Redeye engines.

Curiously, Dodge has not yet said how much horsepower and torque the Banshee powertrain delivers. What it has confirmed is that it is an 800-volt system and provides performance to exceed the SRT Hellcat engine. Indeed, Dodge says its first electric vehicle is faster than a Hellcat in all key performance metrics, no doubt helped by the fact that it is equipped with all-wheel drive as standard.

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept is also unique in that it uses the carmaker’s new eRupt multi-speed transmission with electro-mechanical shifting that should help to mimic some of the driver involvement that classic muscle car enthusiasts crave. A push-to-pass PowerShot feature that increases horsepower for a quick burst of acceleration has also been designed for the concept.


The ‘Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust’ system

Then there is the sound. In the lead-up to the launch of the car, Stellantis promised that it would produce a “shocking” sound. It has now been confirmed that it developed a patent-pending Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust system for the Charger Daytona SRT Hellcat that produces a 126 dB roar, equal to that of the SRT Hellcat. This system consists of an amplifier and tuning chamber located at the rear of the vehicle and delivers a visceral “Dark Matter” sound profile that works alongside the eRupt transmission.

The design of the concept is also quite something. Whereas Dodge could have easily fallen into the trap of developing an electric vehicle with a futuristic shape, it has instead paid homage to the design of the original Charger Daytona.
A key part of the car’s design is the R-Wing that defines the front end. The R-Wing allows air to flow through the front opening of the car, increasing downforce. The front-end also catches the eye thanks to illuminated lighting around the front grille and an illuminated Fratzog badge after first being used by Dodge models in the 1960’s and 70’s.

Dodge has also created an intriguing interior for the Charger Daytona SRT Concept. Found at the heart of the driver-centric cockpit is a large 12.3-inch infotainment screen and a 16-inch digital instrument cluster. The concept has also been equipped with a large Head-Up Display and trick Ambient Attitude Adjustment Lighting.

The sculpted design theme continues across the carbon fiber-backed front and rear seats, as well as the steering wheel with both a flat top and flat bottom. A pass-through area has also been incorporated under the console while the pistol-grip shifter evokes memories of classic muscle cars. A panoramic glass roof adds to the unique feel of the concept’s cabin.


“The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept exists because performance made us do it,” Dodge brand chief executive Tim Kuniskis described in a statement. “Dodge is about muscle, attitude and performance, and the brand carries that chip on its shoulder and into the BEV segment through a concept loaded with patents, innovations, and pertformance features that embody the electrified muscle of tomorrow. The Charger Daytona SRT Concept can do more than run the car show circuit; it can run a blazing quarter-mile. And when it comes to product cycles, it outruns Darwin. Charger Daytona does more than define where Dodge is headed, it will redefine American muscle in the process.”

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept is expected to spawn a production variant for the 2024 model year, but Dodge has yet to confirm this.

Honestly I do think you need some kind of audible indicator of speed, both interior and exterior. I'm just imagining a world of silent EVs running around, leaving a wake of dead animal and human bodies. The Silent Killers.

I hope this is an entirely new EV platform instead of a re-re-re-bastardized version of the Chyrsler LX, W211 & W220 platforms...

Default Stellantis To Produce New STLA Large Platform EVs In Windsor, Canada

Stellantis To Produce New STLA Large Platform EVs In Windsor, Canada

Quote:


Stellantis unveiled its STLA platform lineup at an EV Day event in July of 2021, and we’re now getting a taste of where the vehicles that will ride upon it will be built.

The brand is making a huge investment in Canada to produce new vehicles as part of its Dare Forward 2030 strategy, which will see an investment of CA$3.6 billion (US$2.8 billion USD) made in the country. Dare Forward 2030 represents a CA$45 billion (US$35 billion) investment in electrification and software, on its way to a long-term electrification strategy through 2025.

“There has been a lot of speculation, and while we’re not prepared to discuss any product details today, we’re happy to confirm that Windsor will produce vehicles on our new STLA Large platform,” said Mark Stewart, Stellantis North America COO. “These announcements represent key pieces of our Dare Forward strategy to provide safe, clean and affordable mobility solutions for our customers long into the future.”


The production version of the Chrysler Airflow Concept pictured here will be one of many models to utilize the STLA Large platform






The Windsor plant will be transformed to produce a new Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) in 2023. According to the brand, the facility will have the flexibility to adjust production volumes as needed to meet changing market demand for the next 10 years.

The Brampton plant currently produces the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger, but all three of those vehicles are scheduled to end production in 2024 when the plant is retooled. A new product announcement for the plant will be made at a later date, but the carmaker has said in the past that it would produce “at least one EV”.

The STLA Large platform will debut in 2026 and will join the STLA Small, STLA Medium, and STLA Frame platforms in the lineup. The architecture itself will underpin vehicles in the size range of 4.70 – 5.40 m (185 – 212.6 inches) long and 1.90 – 2.03 m (74.8 – 79.9 inches) wide, which is about the size of a Cherokee or Wagoneer.


Stellantis says that 8 new vehicles will debut on the STLA Large platform by 2026, and the Windsor plant will play a big part in their production.

Production of the current Dodge Charger and Challenger will cease in 2024

Default Idaho State Police Seeking Alternatives To Dodge Charger Pursuit As Company Embraces

While on the subject of Stellantis/ Dodge/ Chrysler.

Do what Upstate New York State Police use, souped up Mustangs. They are bad ass sitting in the middle of Highway. They run too. Guess Ford could solve your situation easily. SUV's , Fusion Police Cars, Mustangs, here NE PA their using new Mach one EV Mustang, couple small towns local police.

Idaho State Police Seeking Alternatives To Dodge Charger Pursuit As Company Embraces EVs

The 2023 model year will be the last for the current Dodge Charger and Challenger as the cars are embracing an electric future.

While the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT concept was a stunning preview of things to come, the switch has upset a number of fans and that appears to include the Idaho State Police.

According to KBOI, the change is pushing them to look for alternative vehicles which are presumably ICE-powered. As a spokesperson told the station, "We continue looking at other options" as "any new order will be for vehicles other than Dodge Chargers."






While it would be easy to blame electrification on this change, it appears the Idaho State Police were already moving away from the Charger Pursuit as their last reported order was prior to 2021. Furthermore, the station noted they're currently waiting on 19 Ford Explorers (presumably in Police Interceptor Utility guise) and five pickups that are backordered.

That being said, the EV push seems to have been the final nail in the coffin as the CBS affiliate said the search for an alternative vehicle came "after Dodge made the announcement." Regardless of the timing or reasoning, the station noted the Charger is currently one of the Idaho State Police's main patrol vehicles and they're slated to replace 89 vehicles in the next two fiscal years.
This isn't a huge blow to Dodge, but it highlights how some police departments aren't ready to embrace electric vehicles at this point. However, New York City has already ordered 184 Ford Mustang Mach-Es and Chevrolet recently introduced the 2024 Blazer EV Police Pursuit Vehicle.

Oh no, what are the Idaho cops gonna do when they can't sit and idle for 12 hours a day wasting gas and taxpayer money. Seriously though I do understand the difference between patrol cars in NYC vs highway cruisers in Idaho, but it seems like they aren't even going to entertain electrification? I'm not sure if the answer lies in more PP terms or if the decision is due to concerns about charging infrastructure.

Most seem to be switching to Explorers anyway. A some point they will be electric as that is all that will be offered.

In defense of Idaho:
It really depends on how many miles a vehicle is expected to do in a day; most cars run/operate 24hrs a day, that won't work with current EV charging times without a significant chunk of downtime for charging. If there were strategically located charging stations where the downtime could be worked in as part of the "normal" routine (charging while on breaks for instance) it could work.

NYC is a very different place with different priorities, environmental/air pollution for example, and a significantly larger budget, not to mention significantly smaller area to cover, and more charging infrastructure already in place.

In general, mainstream EV's are still pretty new and aren't as "Law Enforcement proof" as the Ford Explorer, Taurus or Charger. Training will be required; IIRC NYCPD bought a bunch of Hybrids ~10yrs ago (maybe more) and didn't properly maintain them (just let the sit without using them) and the batteries degraded to the point of being useless.

The fake noise this thing makes is totally ridiculous. Shows how fragile the targeted demographic is.

They should just amplify the sound of the motors or some winding sound. Fake exhaust is going to sound ridiculously dumb and I doubt it's going to sound anywhere near like a true ice vehicle.

Hyundai did it right with their recent concept high performance cars. I want an EV that sounds like a crazy RC car, just loud, obnoxious whirring when I step on it.

I want mine to sound like a worm drive electric saw or like the Mach-E Race car that sounds like a blender on steroids.

I prefer unique to replicating a V8.

Good god, that sounds so awful that it’s hilarious. I’d like to meet the people that signed off on that thinking “by golley George, this sounds great!”

I don't even like simulated/electronically amplified engine or induction noise in an ICE car, The faux V8? noises this thing is making; yeah hard pass.

Depending on how good those "sound" speakers are, I'd much rather replace it with the sound of a Tie-fighter. I wouldn't mind seeing/hearing that drive by lmao

I think the styling looks pretty dang good.

My lady's hybrid CRV has a noise it makes when it starts and switches over to electric. I think electric cars definitely need to make some sort of sound so pedestrians and cyclists know they are coming. If it's gonna be a fake sound might as well make it something pleasing to the ear. I don't think they hit the mark here, but maybe future iterations will figure it out....

Let this not distract you from the Fact that Hector is running a 5liter 8 Cyl, 455hp Block designed in partnership between Toyota and Yamaha for the Purpose of a complete Zero-Emission Powerhouse.

Let’s also spread the word that CARBON NEUTRAL GASOLINE ALREADY EXISTS... We don’t all need to switch to EV’s
