—Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis

Two-door coupe versions of the all-electric 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona Scat Pack and 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T will begin production in mid-2024. Production of all-electric four-door Daytona Scat Pack and R/T models will begin in the first quarter of 2025. Gasoline-powered two-door Dodge Charger SIXPACK H.O. and four-door Dodge Charger SIXPACK S.O. models are also scheduled to begin production in the first quarter of 2025. The all-new Dodge Charger will be built at the Windsor (Ontario) Assembly Plant.

The Dodge brand’s announcement of the all-electric Charger Daytona models and cleaner-running Hurricane engine-powered Charger SIXPACK offerings align with the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, in which electrified and more efficient propulsion systems will help Stellantis cut its global carbon footprint by 50% by 2030 and lead the transportation industry by achieving net carbon zero by 2038.

Next-generation Dodge Charger models represent the first vehicles to debut the STLA Large platform, a highly flexible, BEV-native platform that has the potential to carry extreme power. A variety of suspension modules and powertrain cradles can be employed to suit vehicle-specific performance objectives.

The all-electric, all-wheel-drive Dodge Charger Daytona models are driven by a 400V propulsion system that delivers supercharged V-8 performance with zero tailpipe emissions and instant torque response. The system incorporates a high-voltage battery pack, a dual integrated charge module and both a front and rear electric drive module (EDM).

The front EDM employs front wheel end disconnect, improving range and efficiency, while the rear EDM includes a mechanical limited slip differential to increase traction and performance. Both front and rear EDMs feature 3-in-1 architecture (inverter, gearbox and motor), with each generating 335 horsepower (250 kW) and 300 lb.-ft. of torque.

The battery pack delivers 100.5 kWh installed capacity and a peak discharge rate of 550 kW—specifically designed to maximize acceleration by allowing the motor to utilize the most power the battery can output in the span of a quarter mile. The battery cell structure is prismatic, offering a more structurally stable cell with better thermal performance through a rigid casing, resulting in lower battery temperatures during high performance driving. The nickel cobalt aluminum chemistry of the battery cell provides more power per gram—the battery-electric version of high-octane fuel, Dodge said.

The 400V propulsion system packs six performance levels into one powertrain. The 2024 Charger Daytona R/T arrives with a standard Direct Connection Stage 1 upgrade kit that adds 40 horsepower to reach a total of 496 horsepower, while the Daytona Scat Pack is delivered with a Stage 2 kit that offers an increase of additional 80 horsepower, taking total output to 670 horsepower. Future Daytona models will require purchase of Direct Connection Stage kits to upgrade from base models to Stage 1 and Stage 2 performance.

Charger Daytona models also take advantage of an advanced and customizable regenerative braking system, converting the vehicle’s kinetic energy into electricity during deceleration to increase total range. Drivers can adjust the level of regenerative braking (0.1g, 0.2g or 0.3g regen) by using paddle shifters to customize the driving experience.

Next-gen Performance Dynamics. The Charger is packed with performance features, including a PowerShot mode with an incremental 40 horsepower for Charger Daytona models; Drag, Track, Drift and Donut modes; 20-inch wheels with 305 front and 325 rear tires; the largest brake package ever offered on a Dodge vehicle; dual-valve semi-active suspension; Race Prep functions; Line Lock, Launch Control and more, all with standard all-wheel-drive for all Charger models.

  • PowerShot: Accessible by a button on the bottom right of the steering wheel, PowerShot is standard on Charger Daytona Scat Pack and R/T models and delivers an incremental 40 horsepower for 15 seconds when activated by a throttle punch.
  • High-performance Brakes: Available with the Track Package option on the Charger Daytona Scat Pack, massive 16-inch Brembo vented rotors and red six-piston front/four-piston rear fixed calipers increase swept area more than 30% from the outgoing SRT and is the largest brake package offered on a Dodge vehicle, delivering ultimate track performance and brake fade resistance.
  • Brake by Wire eBoost: The Brake by Wire intelligent braking system uses a central module to control vehicle deceleration, blending regeneration and foundation braking and monitoring inputs to deliver optimum braking force and pedal feedback.
  • Wheels/Tires: The all-new Dodge Charger features the biggest tire package used to date by Dodge, with 20-inch wheels and staggered Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 305/35ZR20XL front/325/35ZR20 rear tires available with the Track Package option on the Daytona Scat Pack. The tire package, the first street/road course-oriented staggered set-up for a Dodge Charger, allows for tuning of the front and rear tires independently, with the front tuned to achieve maximum lateral acceleration and the rear tuned for stability.
  • Suspension: The Charger incorporates a multi-link front suspension that delivers increased performance in cornering with stiffness from forged aluminum links that helps in durability, dynamics and handling performance. The fully independent rear suspension is designed with an eye toward performance, with an optimized front geometry to enhance steering feel and a unique-to-Charger rear 4-link suspension geometry that increases body control during high-speed cornering.
  • Dual-valve Semi-active Suspension: Optional on the Charger Daytona Scat Pack with Track Package, the Adaptive Damping suspension utilizes dual valves (one for compression one for rebound), three times the number of body accelerometers, four times the wheel-hub accelerometers and four times the ride height sensors from the outgoing Charger, allowing for more damping force in handling scenarios, a smoother ride over rough roads and a wider range of personalization in each Drive Mode.
  • Drive Modes: The all-new Dodge Charger includes a range of Drive Modes to give the driver the ability to determine the muscle car’s personality, including Auto, Eco, Sport, Wet/Snow and Track and Drag (only available as standard on the Charger Daytona Scat Pack). Track mode produces maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces, while Drag Mode, intended for use on an enclosed dragstrip, provides optimal dragstrip launch and straight-line acceleration.
  • Race Options: The Charger is offering more options than ever to explore muscle car performance with new Donut and Drift Modes exclusive to the Daytona Scat Pack, the return of popular Launch Control and Line Lock and Dodge-exclusive race-prep options.
  • Donut Mode: Enables the vehicle to spin only the rear wheels and to rotate around either of the front wheels without intervention from the traction control system.
  • Drift Mode: The driver can select three levels of slip angle, and torque is rear-axle biased, using the front axle to help maintain slip angle. Front dampers become full soft and rear dampers go full stiff to enable an oversteer condition, and the traction control system allows for different wheel speed differentials without setting fault codes.
  • Line Lock: Gives the driver the ability to lock the front wheels, remove torque from the front axle and spin the rear tires to clean and warm up the tires before a launch event.
  • Launch Control: Provides optimal straight-line acceleration from a stationary start, with five selectable level of launch intensity.
  • Race Prep: The new Charger debuts Dodge-exclusive methods for race prep, for drag racing or track racing. With energy demand shorter in drag racing, the race prep system supports optimum energy output through a warmer battery. Track-racing needs require a longer energy drain which heats the battery, prompting the race prep system to achieve a colder start temperature, allowing more time for the battery to heat up and allowing for more track time. Race prep pages include information on the battery level, thermal level and the time remaining for the battery to achieve race readiness.
  • Performance Pages: Like recent Dodge performance vehicles, Performance Pages for the all-new Charger deliver info on key performance metrics such as timers, gauges, g-force, propulsion system information and more.
  • Body Structure: All-new Dodge Charger Daytona models achieve near perfect weight distribution between the two axles, improving vehicle handling and control, and an increase in overall rigidity of the body structure assists with performance and ride quality, minimizing cabin rattles and driveline vibrations.

The patent-pending Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust system for Charger Daytona models uses two passive radiators to a create a unique exhaust profile with Hellcat levels of sound intensity that shatters the preconception of a typical quiet BEV.

The Dodge Charger Daytona R/T is expected to deliver more than 317 miles of range, while the higher performance Charger Daytona Scat Pack provides 260 miles of all-electric range. Charger models will offer optional Level 2 wall-charging units or public charging credits available through Free2move Charge, a 360-degree ecosystem launched in 2023 by Stellantis that seamlessly delivers charging and energy management to address all electric-vehicle customer needs. Both vehicles can be recharged from a 20 to 80% charge status in just over 27 minutes when using a Level 3 DC CCS fast charger.

Estimated charging capacity is approximately 9.9 miles per minute of charging time for the Daytona R/T and 8.1 miles per minute for the Daytona Scat Pack, using a 350-kW fast charger.
