2023 Dodge EV Lineup

0  comments

Over the years, Dodge has earned a reputation for releasing some of the best muscle cars to ever hit American roads. That might lead you to believe that Dodge isn’t going to get into the business of putting out electric vehicles (EVs) anytime soon. But guess what? The company is planning to do just that, and it’s already promising that its EVs are going to pack plenty of power when they hit the streets.

It remains to be seen just how much power Dodge’s new EVs will be able to produce. But the company is clearly going to do its absolute best to keep fans of its muscle cars interested in what it brings to the table when it comes to EVs. Today, we’re going to talk about the 2023 Dodge EV lineup and what the future holds. Continue reading to get the inside scoop on how Dodge plans to shake up the auto industry with its EV lineup.

What’s Included in the 2023 Dodge EV Lineup?

If you look at the 2023 Dodge lineup, you’re going to find some exciting vehicles included in the mix. For example, both the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Challenger are getting their last call from Dodge. The automaker is discontinuing both iconic cars after the 2023 model year, at least in their current forms. It’s bittersweet for longtime fans of the Charger and/or Challenger, as they’re getting a chance to own a piece of history but also having to say goodbye to these legendary muscle cars.

What you’re not going to find in the 2023 Dodge lineup is many EVs. Since Dodge is just beginning to push toward creating an electrified lineup of cars, the 2023 Dodge EV lineup is on the smaller side. In fact, it’s only going to include one EV for the time being, and this is going to be a hybrid. But it should help set the tone for Dodge as it starts to move away from manufacturing gas-powered vehicles and begins making electric ones.

Introducing the 2023 Dodge Hornet

The 2023 Dodge EV lineup will include the brand-new 2023 Dodge Hornet, the very first EV Dodge has ever released to the public. To be clear, the 2023 Dodge Hornet isn’t going to be fully electric like some of the EVs that will follow it, but it’ll mark Dodge’s first serious foray into the electric space.

What is the 2023 Dodge Hornet going to offer? Well, it’s a crossover SUV that’s expected to compete with vehicles such as the Mazda CX-30, the Kia Seltos, and the Volkswagen Taos. It comes with a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that can produce up to 265 horsepower. But the Road/Track trim of the Hornet is what has us excited. It comes with a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that can work together to produce up to 285 horsepower.

The Hornet will also come equipped with a 12 kWh battery pack capable of providing up to 30 miles of electric driving on a single charge. This battery pack can be charged within approximately two hours. It’s a great sign of things to come, even though the Hornet won’t be fully electric like some people might hope. It’s going to help introduce the world to Dodge’s plan to create more EVs in the not-too-distant future.

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Is Coming Soon

Dodge might not be ready to release its first fully electric car as part of its 2023 Dodge EV lineup. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t going to have something on the horizon for us soon. Dodge spent much of 2022 preparing for its new Dodge Charger Daytona SRT, which is going to be its first all-electric vehicle. And it appears as though it could turn the auto industry on its head when it’s released.

Dodge hasn’t shared all the details surrounding the Charger Daytona SRT yet. But it did make an appearance at the SEMA show in the fall of 2022, where Dodge revealed some of the more exciting aspects of the vehicle. For example, the company announced the Charger Daytona SRT will come with either a 340-volt electrical system or a 440-volt electrical system that can produce up to 455 horsepower or 590 horsepower, respectively. There is also going to be an 800-volt electrical system in the Charger Daytona SRT Banshee, though Dodge hasn’t released the power output for it yet.

Dodge also showed off the Fratzonic chambered exhaust system that it’s been working on while designing the Charger Daytona SRT. It’s able to amplify the gentle hum that an EV produces to make it sound like a muscle car. Dodge hasn’t finalized plans for this exhaust system yet, but it sounds like this system, or something similar, will come included in the Charger Daytona SRT when it’s released in 2024.

Will Dodge EVs Work as a Concept?

Despite all the enthusiasm surrounding the 2023 Dodge EV lineup and the other EVs that the automaker has in the pipeline, there’s still some speculation surrounding Dodge’s whole EV push. Some people remain skeptical about a brand built on its affinity for muscle cars entering the EV space. But the company is clearly expending a lot of time and resources to make a splash on the EV scene. It wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Dodge succeed in this department.
