says that the 2021 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is capable of up to a blistering 807 horsepower, for example.
But Dodge has decided that they have found the limits of gas-powered V8 engines and have moved into the domain of electric performance. They will release an electric supercar in 2024. One of the few details released was a computer generated image that resembled a classic 1968 Charger, with all four tires smoking.

Dodge will be doing what they do best: building muscle cars. They're even redesigning their classic three-point logo, if the point wasn't clear enough. Dodge's reputation and history as a pioneer of the muscle car era is solidly behind their new EV build.
Dodge promises better than their current performance. The Dodge Demon currently hits 60 mph in just over 2 seconds and has an impressive 840 horsepower. If the 2024 EV stands up to Dodge's promise, it will be a standout in the EV world.

hit 60 mph in 1.98 seconds. It did set a new land-speed record for production cars with the "sticky" starting line, but that is not something that most drivers will ever encounter, even if they are taking their cars for a spin on a track.
While Dodge has not given many more details about their new EV coming in 2024, the assumption can be made that it likely will not require a "drag-strip mode" like the Tesla Model S Plaid does, considering Dodge's focus on performance and power. Dodge will likely give Tesla some stiff competition in the performance EV market.
Dodge is just the latest manufacturer to shift focus to EV production, though it is one of the first to focus on electric power and performance. They know their customer base, and will endeavor to deliver exactly what a new generation of thrill seekers want.
