Dodge’s powerful V8 engine is one of the most efficient engines, but it will end production with the 2023 model year.
In anticipation of the launch of the all-electric muscle car in 2024, Stellantis has taken this extreme step.
In 2021, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said, “I’m going to own this car, this platform, and this powertrain through the end of ’23. There will be two more years to buy a Hellcat, then it’s history.”
“There are two more years to buy a Hellcat, then it’s history,” he added, suggesting that Dodge will focus on new models and platforms beginning in 2024.
As per Motor Authority, there’s a 24 Months of Muscle calendar style card the manufacturer has used for 2024.
The card shows 26 garage doors, four of which have already been revealed, and the final reveal will be a 2024 all-electric Dodge muscle car.
Toward the end of 2022, the concept of the 2024 all-electric muscle car will be revealed.
We are about to see the car’s performance stats and specifications for the first time.
Dodge is also said to be embedding advanced electric technology into the 2024 model.
Proceeding to the Hellcat, the supercharged V8 engine was unveiled with the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that can hit 707 hp. Several other versions were released with 808 horsepower.
Dodge has already halted production of its limited edition Durango SRT Hellcat SUV due to strict federal emissions regulations.
Kuniskis said you can meet emissions standards with these cars, but you’ll pay a lot of fines for non-compliance.
A gas guzzler tax of $2,100 is also charged to customers of Hellcat Challengers and Charges. Dodge will end the Hellcat on a high note before releasing its 2024 model.
