300 Horsepower RWD GT Model is a Possible Option for the New Dodge Charger EV

It has been stated that Dodge is working on a more reasonably priced, entry-level version of the all-electric Charger, which will sit far lower in the new Daytona lineup than its equivalents with internal combustion engines.

The R/T and Scat Pack, two all-wheel-drive electric versions of the next Charger generation, will be available at launch. Although the prices of both vehicles are still unknown, their respective power outputs of 496 and 670 horsepower suggest that they come with a high price tag that may be beyond the means of many people.

However, a new source suggests that a base Charger GT model may be released in the future. It is expected that this entry-level model will have rear-wheel drive and a single electric motor.

Although the precise power output of this vehicle is unknown, estimations indicate that it may be in the range of 300 horsepower, which would be consistent with the performance of the outgoing Charger GT variants. It has been reported that Dodge intends to release this model in two-door and four-door versions, with a possible release date in the second half of 2025.

The Charger GT may have an extremely long range if it employs the same 100.5 kWh battery pack as the R/T and Scat Pack. Currently, the Scat Pack is rated at 260 miles (418 km), while the R/T can go a claimed 317 miles (510 km) on a single charge.

With only one motor and a lot less power than the other two, the GT could theoretically have a range of more than 350 miles (563 km). It should also provide the same 183 kW peak charge rate, which should enable it to charge from 5 to 80% at a 350 kW charger in about 32.5 minutes.

If Dodge hopes the new model is a hit, it must also get the price right. The starting price of the outgoing Charger GT is $38,025; the destination cost is $1,595 more. It makes sense that the electric Charger GT will cost more given all the extra technology, but if Dodge can keep the price tag under $45,000, it will undoubtedly draw in customers who would not have otherwise given the Charger much thought.
