If you were concerned that the production version of the 2024 Dodge Charger would look nothing like the stunning concept from 2022, these photos should allay those fears. The new Charger actually ups the Dodge muscle car game by not just going electric but also by providing both two- and four-door versions. Dodge will deliver two versions of its first battery electric vehicle models in 2024: the Dodge Charger Daytona R/T with up to 496 horsepower and a Daytona Scat Pack at up to 670 hp. 

It harkens back to Chargers of old, but it's fully modern and fully electric (images: Stellantis).

If those numbers aren't enough for you, take into account that Dodge says the Scat Pack version will launch from 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds. Both models will be two-door only upon launch, but Dodge will bring a sedan in 2025 and (wait for it...) gas versions of both the coupe and the sedan with a new Hurricane inline-six engine. Goodbye V8 mill. While that might not be great news, keep in mind that the six-cylinder is Stellantis's 3.0-liter twin-turbo version rated at 550 horsepower. A high-performance Banshee EV trim is also rumored to be in the works.

Not that anyone cares all that much about the Charger EVs range (including Stellantis, Dodge's parent company), but the numbers aren't too shabby. The Charger Daytona R/T will have 317 miles of range, and the Daytona Scat Pack will offer 260 miles of range. While that's not anywhere near Tesla, that's not even remotely the goal. Dodge officials said Charger fans aren't focused on range but performance, and we'd have to agree. The question is, will muscle car customers buy an electric version?

As you can see, the design is very much Dodge Charger, even more so than the last version. It uses the more squared-off cues from the Charger of the 1960s. Built into the retro style is a new white LED full-width front lighting element, as well as red “ring of fire” LED rear taillamps with an illuminated Fratzog logo in the middle of the lighting elements in both the front and rear of the Charger.

What the hellcat is a Fratzog? Well, it's nothing new, but it is obscure. The Fratzog was used on certain  1962-1975 Dodge vehicles' emblems and badges. The name has no meaning but was coined on a spur-of-the-moment decision. That name carries over to the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust on the new EVs that will deliver loud, “Hellcat levels of sound intensity,” but owners can dial it down in Stealth mode.  The car will also get drive and race modes, including Donut and Drift.

Buyers can choose an available full-length glass roof, a front R-Wing (found on the concept) aerodynamic feature on the front. The car will also get a retro-style pistol-grip shifter, electronic door buttons paired with a manual lever, paddle shifters to adjust regen braking levels, and 64-color ambient lighting. The interior, thankfully, is thoroughly modern, eschewing the bulky and painfully dated interior from the old Charger and Challenger. Speaking of the Challenger, it looks like it's not going to happen now that the Charger will have a two-door version.

There's a squared-off steering wheel, digital displays for the instrument cluster and the infotainment. The webbed pattern and illuminated interior door panels carry over from the concept beautifully. On those screens will be an available driver experience recorder that retains track-day data with audio, video, and even capture of the driver's voice. No word on whether it bleeps out profanity. Ha ha.

There's no word on pricing yet, but that should be released well before the car debuts later this year. No doubt, pricing will be up over the old car. The 2023 Dodge Charger base price was $32,645, the V8 Charger R/T started at $42,385, and the Charger Hellcat started at $77,345.
