We are going to hit all of the highlights below, with an emphasis on individuals that matter most to the U.S. marketplace.

Dodge will launch the ‘world’s very first electric powered muscle car’ in 2024

It seems like Dodge will invoke its 60s heritage (peep the illuminated “Fratzog” on the nose) for a new, all-electric powered muscle auto. Dependent on the STLA Large platform, it’s projected to have a -to-sixty time as small as 2 seconds and a array of up to five hundred miles. The automaker also hinted at a highest electricity output of as large as 886 horsepower courtesy of a pair of 330-kilowatt electric powered motors.

This possible would not matter a lot in the U.S. sector, wherever the 500X will quickly be the only vehicle it sells, but Fiat’s general performance division is heading all-electric powered. Hey, maybe we’ll get a 500X Abarth before Stellantis pulls the plug (yeah, sorry) on the Italian model in the United States. Once more.
