Dodge challenges: can the Automaker bring Muscle into the Electric Future?

The word muscle car has always been a euphemism for relaxation. Want maximum power for money? Forget any sports car from Porsche or Lotus. Buy a muscle car and slow down the corners a bit. Today Dodge announced that it is building an electric muscle car and it will be available in 2024. The first question that comes to mind is: Well, if it is a muscle car, what is missing? There are differences between a muscle car and a sports car and the dodge is uniquely suited to knowing the differences. The brand has long been associated with horsepower and is going fast in a straight line going Dodge Viper.

The Dodge Challenger is even available with the Dodge Durango, a weighed SUV, with a tricked-out V8 that holds 710 hp – more power than most Porsche, though no one is there to open the Durango unlike the 911 on the track. Part of the drawing of electric vehicles revolves around their mechanical simplicity. It was also the main sale of the muscle car. However, instead of providing a sports car with a tuned chassis and remarkable aerospace, adding significant development costs, American car companies have simply stuffed large engines into everyday family cars. 

Let’s assume Dodge uses muscle car molds and makes low-cost, straight-line electronic racers – the Dodge Challenger feels more like a Toyota Supra. This mold has several distinctive features. One, burnouts muscle cars are known for their burnouts, which in themselves are excessive producers of energy, lack of chassis refinement correction, and utter disregard for the tread of your tires. Dodge teased this power in his announcement tweet, showing a car smoking four tires. Dodge knows its audience.

Muscle car owners are hoping to be able to tune, weigh and change the tone of their vehicles while sitting at home. This is one of the main applications for this type of vehicle. Straight from the factory, muscle cars are capable, but the buyer has omitted certain parts to the automaker to keep the price of the sticker as low as possible. Want better traction? Swap tires. Want a better angle? Add stiff needle bars.
