2024 Dodge Charger Goes Electric, Gas To Follow

Dodge Charger Daytona models will be electric, while Dodge Charger SixPack models will burn gasoline.



  • The 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona will hit dealers this summer in R/T and Scat Pack trims.
  • Dodge will release the Charger SixPack models in 2025 that pack a 3.0-liter Hurricane six-cylinder under the hood.
  • Dodge Charger Daytona features a 100.5-kWh, nickel cobalt aluminum battery pack that Dodge expects to travel 317 miles per charge in base R/T trim.

The wait is finally over and the next Dodge Charger is here. After almost two years of speculation and rumors, Dodge has pulled the sheets off the upcoming Charger models and spilled most of the important details.

Dodge is launching its next-gen Charger with the battery-electric Charger Daytona models but isn’t leaving internal-combustion fans behind. The Charger SixPack will follow in 2025 and pack a 3.0-liter six-cylinder Hurricane under the hood. Adding even more to the lineup, Dodge is offering the next Charger with a pair or a full set of four doors.

With plenty of combinations to explain, let’s kick off with the models that are scheduled to hit dealer lots this summer. Dodge will launch the next-gen Charger with the battery-electric Daytona models. While the Charger Daytona SRT Banshee is lagging behind until next year, the Charger Daytona R/T and Charger Daytona Scat Pack EVs will be the first to show up on the roads.

The entry-level Charger Daytona R/T’s two electric drive modules work together to send 456 hp to the tires. Though, 2024 model Charger Daytona R/T sedans and coupes will come equipped with the Direct Connection stage one performance upgrade, which cranks output to 496 hp.

Moving up to the Scat Pack, it’s a similar story. The eventual starting output of the Scat Pack is 590 hp but, like the R/T, will come equipped with the Direct Connection stage 2 kit that brings ‘24 model Charger Scat Packs to 670 hp from its pair of electric motors.

Feeding both of these models is the same 100.5-kWh nickel cobalt aluminum battery pack, with power to all four wheels. According to Dodge, the R/T is expected to travel around 317 miles on a single charge, with the Scat Pack looking at 260 miles of range. This battery pack also advertises a peak discharge rate of 550 kW and can be recharged at 350 kW.

All in, Dodge says the base Charger Daytona R/T models can sprint to 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds before running out of steam at 137 mph. Scat Pack-equipped models shrink both of those numbers and can sprint to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and will top out at 134 mph.

Dodge also says the base R/T model is good for a 13.1-second quarter-mile pass, with Scat Packs traveling that distance in only 11.5 seconds. That should be promising intel for those who eye the Charger Daytona Banshee.

While it won’t be available until next year, Dodge has laid out what we can expect from the gas-powered Charger models. Both use the Hurricane 3.0-liter turbocharged I6, which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and feeds an all-wheel-drive system.
