World first ‘electric-muscle car’ unveiled by Dodge and everyone is saying the same thing

Not the response you'd probably be expecting...

With electric vehicles slowly taking over the motor industry, it was only time before an electric 'muscle car' was released.

As of last year, there were nearly three million new electric cars on US roads - up 1.7 million compared to 2022.

And it's hoped that there will be a staggering 30 to 42 million electric cars on US roads by 2030.

Understandably, not everyone wants to be whipping around in a Tesla - as popular as they may be. I mean, at the end of the day, it's nice to have options.

With this in mind, Dodge have now unveiled its first fully electric vehicle and it promises not only style, but highly quality performance too.

News of the 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona broke in recent days, and its spec sounds pretty impressive.

The two-door EV boasts 496 horsepower, with Scat Pack models having 670 horsepower coming from two separate electric motors.

Range wise isn't too bad either for an electric car with so much power, with Dodge having a target of 317 miles range for the Road and Track vehicles.

In comparison, Tesla's Model 3 has a range of 267 - 333 miles.

Images of the highly anticipated new car have been doing the rounds online, and it's safe to say it's had a mixed response.

Dodge recently unveiled its first fully electric Charger.

"ELECTRIC AND MUSCLE CAR MUST NEVER BE IN THE SAME SENTENCE PLS ISSA ABOMINATION [sic]," penned on nay-sayer on X.

"Agreed. Not sure what the word is but it's not muscle," someone else replied to the message.

A different person wrote: "That looks like the android version of Cybertruck."

Elsewhere, another social media user insisted that the 2024 Dodge Charger Daytona was 'not a real muscle car'.

"I don’t know how to put it but something about 'electric muscle car' don’t sound right," someone else added.

Others were less critical, however.

One X user said of the Dodge vehicle: "Lowkey sexy ngl [sic]."

"This a nice car," wrote another, as a third went on: "Looks fire, hope it’s not s**t."

Muscle cars like the Charger were known for their deafening exhausts, but the EV version of the new model will still have sounds built into it so people still know you're coming from a mile off.

According to CNN, these cars 'will have an “exhaust” system solely to pump out loud sounds as the car as being driven'.

Dodge are yet to announce the cost of its new EV, but it's rumored to be in the price range of $50,000 - $60,000.
