American muscle car specialist Dodge is building “the world’s first electric muscle car” that it will launch in 2024, parent company Stellantis announced during its EV Day event on Thursday, July 8.

As CarAdvice reports, the new Dodge muscle car promises to deliver more power and performance than any of the brand’s current supercharged V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive muscle sedans and SUVs.

The upcoming electric car, which Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis referred to as an “eMuscle,” will be powered by an all-new electric vehicle platform consisting of at least two 330kW electric motors to create all-wheel drive. It will also be potentially capable of zero to 100kph sprint time of 2.0 seconds.

According to Kuniskis, the move is geared toward the company’s aim of boosting the tire-squealing horsepower and performance of its vehicles. “If a charger can make a Charger faster, then we’re all for it,” the CEO said.

“Our engineers are reaching a practical limit of what we can squeeze from internal combustion innovation,” he added. “They know we know that electric motors can give us more. And if we know of a technology that can give our customers an advantage.”
