Social Media Submit Fuels Hypothesis That Subsequent-Gen Dodge Chargers Could Not Be Solely Electrical

Social Media Submit Fuels Hypothesis That Subsequent-Gen Dodge Chargers Could Not Be Solely Electrical

Muscle automotive lovers had been dealt a extreme blow when it was introduced that Dodge would discontinue making their much-beloved pony automotive, the Charger, an inside combustion engine (ICE) automobile. 

For individuals who are much less acquainted with muscle automobiles, the Dodge Charger (along with being Vin Diesel’s automobile of selection within the Quick and the Livid franchise) is arguably probably the most beloved and iconic American muscle automotive ever produced; that isn’t Ford’s lauded Shelby Mustang. 

A lot muscle automotive love comes right down to their sleekly designed our bodies and highly effective, rip-roaring engines. So, while you take away the engine, you’re taking away the primary cause individuals love muscle automobiles. 

Sadly for muscle automotive lovers, Dodge’s mother or father firm, Stellantis, like the remainder of the business, is continuing to make all their autos EVs sooner or later to adjust to authorities mandates – Or so we thought. 

There Could Be Hope

Photographs lately posted to X (the social media platform formally often called Twitter) by consumer @TakuroSpirit reportedly proof that Dodge’s next-gen Charger may not be solely electrical. 

Based on MotorTrend, which intently analyzed these photographs of a Dodge Charger physique nonetheless within the early levels of manufacturing in a producing plant, sport compelling proof that Dodge’s newest Charger may not be all-electric. A minimum of not instantly. 

Specializing in the hood space of this Charger’s skeleton, they level out that the strut towers have all of the hallmarks wanted (from a barebones design perspective) to deal with an ICE between them. 

Certainly, an in depth have a look at these manufacturing photographs reveals a transmission tunnel and house for a bellhousing. In addition they report recognizing a gasoline filler opening on this Charger’s physique, although in addition they cautiously be aware that is also the opening for an EV charging port. 

On a separate be aware, it’s fascinating that in addition they noticed a design modification unrelated as to if this automobile will probably be an EV or an ICE. 

When trying on the rear of the automobile’s skeleton, there seems to be little to no separation between the trunk and the place the again window glass can be, indicating this Charger could be a hatchback. 

The Better of Each Worlds

Does any of this imply that this new Charger gained’t be electrical? No. 

As a lot as muscle automotive lovers would love for Stellatus to say they’ll abandon their EV plans, it will not occur. As a substitute, it’s much more possible that the next-gen Charger sports activities electrical and gasoline powertrains. Whereas it’s not what ICE followers need, there’s some proof that this next-gen Charger may sport a roaring V8 together with an electrical powertrain. 

Making the next-gen Charger a gas-electric hybrid is a transfer that will be in line with one other Stellantis product, the Jeep 4xe. So, it is smart. And for many who despise EVs, the Charger gained’t be totally electrical for now.
