Dodge will only produce electric versions of the new Charger and Challenger, an era ends

An era ends: Dodge’s muscle cars will be produced exclusively with electric propulsion. Long considered the natural rivals of the equally iconic Ford Mustang, the next-generation Dodge Charger and Challenger will be available exclusively as an electric version .

“” What is the current form of the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger is coming to an end, “reads a statement from the brand.

Before the farewell, Dodge will present seven special limited edition versions of the Challenger and Charger with internal combustion engine.

The car manufacturer explained that all motorists eager to get their hands at all costs on the two muscle cars with internal combustion engines will be able to do so thanks to seven new special versions, designed to say goodbye to internal combustion engines and celebrate the history of the two cars. .

We want to celebrate the end of an era and the beginning of a bright new electric future, while staying true to our brand and our history.

added Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge.

In Italy it is not very common to see the two muscle cars whizzing on the roads, also because they are two niche cars that tend to be imported through specialized channels. However, in the US they are two important icons of the automotive industry.

In 2021 the Challenger was the sales champion in the muscle car segment, beating the Ford Mustang 54,314 to 52,384.

All seven special editions of the Dodge Charger and Challenger will feature a ‘Last Call’ badge.
