Back when Dodge released the first two models for its upcoming eMuscle lineup, there was a lot of talk about the different types of powertrains that would show up. The first model is definitely coming to dealership showrooms soon, the 2023 Dodge Hornet PHEV, and will be sporting a yet-to-be-seen 800-volt Banshee electric motor. A concept for now, the second is the two-door Dodge Charger Daytona SRT BEV Concept, said to come with the lineups first three output level options, plus four more from Dodge Direct Connection. Showing up at the 20222 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Charger Daytona SRT BEV shows up again to give us a look at these 400-volt output levels and the various configurations consumers will have to choose from.
400-volt Output Levels
So, first things’ first. There should be a total of nine powertrain levels, with three to show up in the factory-produced eMuscle models and then six more from Direct Connection. The first three showing up with the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept are a 340 kW model and a 440 kW model. The 340 kW model has the potential to generate up to 455 horsepower, and if consumers wish to upgrade with Direct Connection, so far we have two options – eStage 1 and eStage 2. eStage 1 will increase the power output to 370 kW (495 horsepower), and eStage 2 will bring the power up to 400 kw (535 horsepower). The second base level will be a 440 kW electric motor, able to generate 590 horsepower. If upgrading with Direct Connection, those output levels can be increased to 470 kW (630 horsepower) and 500 kW (670 horsepower), respectively. The third powertrain, the 800-volt Banshee is yet to be announced, but is still set to sail with the Dodge Hornet PHEV.
To match the nine powertrain levels of the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT BEV Concept, Dodge is also releasing a variety of Charger Daytona SRT Concept colors and nine different wheel combinations. These will be available for preview via a video display at the 2022 SEMA Auto show, but a prime example is also showing up. The first is the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept’s new tri-coat Stryker Red exterior hue, designed to celebrate the Stage 2 Banshee performance upgrade from Direct Connection. This model will also feature “Stage 2” fender badging and new 18-inch Direct Connection lightweight carbon-fiber concept wheels wrapped in 305mm drag tires.
One other change to the concept is the new patent-pending Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust – the world’s first BEV exhaust system. When we first heard about the Daytona SRT BEV Concept, Dodge was sure to highlight this new exhaust. Although emission free, a Dodge battery-electric vehicle (BEV) should still sound like a Dodge muscle car. This new exhaust system can generate the sound of an SRT Hellcat with a 126 decibel roar from the electric motor. First impressions weren’t exactly ecstatic, so Dodge has retuned the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust for the 2022 SEMA Auto Show, and on-site teams will be surveying show attendees on how they feel about the upgrade via a ranking system.
