Which Dodge Vehicles Are Offered in Hybrid or Electric Versions?


The Dodge brand is taking a bold step into the future by breaking into the electric vehicle (EV) sphere for the first time in its long and illustrious history. The introduction of the 2024 Dodge Hornet R/T plug-in hybrid compact SUV brought us the brand’s first-ever electrified high-performance vehicle. 

But that’s just the start. Dodge recently announced the launch of the all-electric Dodge Charger Daytona — the first electric muscle car in the world. At Huffines Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) Lewisville, we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the first Charger models in late 2024 and further variants scheduled for release in early 2025. Here’s what to expect for the new Dodge EVs. 

2024 Dodge Hornet Design 

You can opt for the new Dodge Hornet electric SUV in R/T and R/T Plus trim levels. Each model features aggressive styling with a low stance, a bold front end, and a dual-vented hood. The R/T offers LED lighting, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and heated power-folding mirrors. The R/T Plus adds a hands-free liftgate and a sunroof. 

Power and Performance 

The Hornet R/T comes standard with all-wheel drive. Under the hood is a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a 90 kW electric motor and 15.5 kWh battery pack to generate 288 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain has a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters for fingertip control.  

This electric SUV offers a maximum speed of 128 mph and takes you from zero to 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds. The class-exclusive PowerShot provides a 15-second 30-horsepower output boost by pulling both paddle shifters. When properly equipped, the Hornet can tow up to 2,000 pounds.  

You get an all-electric range of up to 32 miles, 77 mpg equivalent for combined driving, and a total range of up to 360 miles. A starter generator and regenerative braking help recharge the battery. You can fully charge the battery in around 2.5 hours using a Level 2 charger. 

Interior Features 

In the R/T’s stylish cabin, you’ll find leatherette-trimmed cloth upholstery, heated power-adjustable front seats, driver seat memory, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and a heated steering wheel. Step up to the R/T Plus for leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat, and a wireless charging pad. Hornet EVs offer 22.9 cubic feet of cargo space. 

The Hornet’s standard 12.3-inch digital instrument display blends with the central 10.25-inch touch screen to organize all the vital information where you need it. The infotainment system includes a Wi-Fi hotspot, smartphone integration, Dodge Connect, and a six-speaker sound system. The R/T adds a navigation system, voice command, and a premium 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. 

Dodge Charger Daytona Electric Sports Car 

For 2024, the legendary Dodge Charger muscle car has been fully redesigned from the ground up. While two gasoline-powered models will be available, the main focus is on the all-electric Charger Daytona R/T and Daytona Scat Pack models. Initially, these stunning EVs will be offered in a two-door fastback body style but will later be available as a four-door sedan based on the same platform. 

The Charger’s retro styling is evocative of the iconic models of the 1960s. It has an aggressive wide and low stance that optimizes stability, handling, and performance. A unique front R-Wing aero pass-through minimizes drag, increases downforce, and enhances high-speed performance. Full-width front and rear LED signature lighting will get you noticed day and night.  

Thrilling Electric Performance 

Charger Daytona electric all-wheel-drive vehicles have powerful twin electric drive modules (EDM) and a 100.5 kWh high-voltage battery pack. The front EDM features front wheel end disconnect for improved range and efficiency. To enhance traction and performance, the rear EDM uses a limited-slip differential.  

When you’re ready to head for the track, the Daytona R/T’s powertrain generates 496 horsepower, enabling it to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and cover a quarter mile in 13.1 seconds. The Daytona Scat Pack develops a stunning 670 horsepower and around 627 lb-ft of torque. It can go from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and cover a quarter mile in 11.5 seconds. 

Race options help maximize the Charger’s performance. Line Lock lets you warm the tires for maximum traction, while Launch Control gives you optimum acceleration. PowerShot gives the Charger a 15-second 40-horsepower boost, and Donut mode and Drift mode let you explore the muscle car’s capabilities. The Daytona R/T offers drive modes, such as Auto, Eco, Sport, and Wet/Snow, while the Scat Pack adds Track and Drag modes. 

Dodge estimates a range of 317 miles for the R/T and 260 miles for the Scat Pack. With a 350 kW DC fast charger, these models go from 20% to 80% charge in around 28 minutes. Unleashing the Charger Daytona’s full power requires a Direct Connection Stage 1 or 2 Kit, which comes standard on 2024 models. For subsequent model years, you’ll need to purchase the kit separately if you don’t want to settle for the lower base power.  

Interior Features 

The Charger’s minimalistic cabin is reminiscent of the original 1968 Charger. The Daytona R/T features faux leather-trimmed, well-bolstered seats designed to minimize passenger movement under hard cornering. You can opt for black or Demonic Red Nappa leather upholstery.  

A squared-off steering wheel provides precise steering input, and there’s an exclusive pistol grip shifter located on the center console next to the Start/Power button, along with a wireless phone charger. Available active ambient lighting reacts to driver inputs and vehicle events. 

With the Charger coupe, the spacious trunk gives you 23 cubic feet of space for gear. Lower the fold-flat rear seats to open up a best-in-class 38.5 cubic feet of cargo space. With the EV’s front trunk, you get 1.5 cubic feet of additional storage.  


For the Charger’s dashboard, you get either a 10.25-inch or 16-inch customizable digital instrument display alongside a 12.3-inch infotainment touch-screen display. The Uconnect 5 system offers wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, hands-free calling and audio, and Dodge Connect. An available large head-up display projects vital information onto the windshield.
