Tesla Will Not Be Helping Dodge Out, According to Stellantis CEO

Written By, Brad R

As the landscape of the automotive world is focused on improving, some brands are fine doing things their own way. Dodge is one of those improving brands. As Dodge remains speeding forward and past the competition inside of the muscle car segment, we can tell fans and buyers agree. Just look at the sales made by the Dodge brand in just the first three months of 2021 alone. The Dodge hope is to grow its muscle brand towards the future with a keen focus being its EV segment. Currently, Dodge does not offer any PHEV or EVs for the public, but that will change as electrification becomes less of a subtle focus and the main focus of the brand. The landscape of the automotive industry is moving rapidly in the EV direction and this fact has not been forgotten all the way at the top of the Dodge brass.

"The days of an iron-block supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 are numbered. They're absolutely numbered because of all the compliance costs. But the performance that those vehicles generate is not numbered," said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge CEO. 

Dodge Is Ready To Move Into EVs

For readers that love the Dodge muscle brand, there is no change that will alter the brand from making fast and high-production vehicles. So, what change can we suspect? While we are not convinced about the first electric vehicle that will be offered by Dodge this year, we know there will be one eventually. Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, has accommodated the brand and will push to be a part of the EV landscape soon enough. The next couple years will see new 2023 and 2024 model year vehicles offer the future of the brand. Dodge has not declined, composing its greatest muscle car efforts in vehicles like the 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. Keep in mind, we know the Dodge brand is no longer looking to settle out the horsepower in vehicles like this or the one-year-run of the famed 2018 Dodge SRT Demon, a Challenger that first launched the brand into the 800+ horsepower territory that the Super Stock grants. 

Tesla Is Not Going To Be Involved In Dodge's Plans

While there was a rumor that Tesla might be included in supporting Stellantis brands, like Dodge, to gain a level up on the EV production, that is no longer the case. When talking about the tax credits and expenditures Stellantis has to fret about in the global market, the certainty is they are more than capable of examining the push towards EV. Just the right amount of forwarding thinking will go a long way for the Dodge brand as they look to make their own mark on the EV market without the aid from rivals, like Tesla. 

"With the electrical technology that PSA brought to Stellantis, we will meet carbon dioxide emission regulations as early as this year. Thus, we will not need to call on European CO2 credits and FCA will no longer have to pool with Tesla or anyone," remarked Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares
