2025 Dodge eMuscle Electric Muscle Car: Smoke All Four of ’Em

Dodge is leaning heavily into its muscle-car heritage for its first-ever electric vehicle.

WHAT IT IS: A fully electrified hellsled from the automotive industry’s gas-chuggingest, tire-smokingest, hair-on-your-chestiest brand, Dodge.

WHY IT MATTERS: When even D odge is preparing to transition to EVs, it’s time to accept the inevitable: The revolution will be rechargeable. Of course, that doesn’t mean abandoning heritage. So Dodge, the marque behind the Challenger, Charger, Hellcat, Demon, and myriad other badass badges, is spinning up an electric muscle car as a bridge between its fully electrified future and its Hemi-powered past.

This car’s retro flavor will help that mission. As seen in teaser images/video and our exclusive renderings, its boxy nose will ape those of classic Chargers—wouldn’t that be an appropriate name to use on the EV?—from the golden period of muscle in the late ’60s and early ’70s; that era’s triangular Fratzog logo returns, too, and is expected to appear on all of Dodge’s EVs moving forward. The eMuscle name has also been bandied about, although it’s not yet clear if this will be the new muscle car’s name or an overarching theme for Dodge.

PLATFORM AND POWERTRAIN: Carlos Tavares, CEO of parent company Stellantis, has called the car “so brilliant that it is shocking”—it’s electric, get it?—and teasers confirm it will have all-wheel drive, showing smoke billowing from all four tires. AWD means the muscle car will pack at least two electric motors, and Stellantis has said the car’s STLA Large platform will offer motors that make as much as 443 hp each, which means it could have nearly 900 horsepower. But this is Dodge we’re talking about, so it’s entirely possible the car gets three or even four electric motors to help it achieve 60 mph in a rumored 2.0 seconds.

“If an electric motor will make it quicker, we will do it,” D odge chief Tim Kuniskis has said. The battery packs for STLA Large will range from 101 to 118 kWh in size with up to 500 miles of driving range, though surely not in this beastly machine. Worried about doing burnouts in silence? Fret not: Dodge wants the car to be loud and has created a muscled-up sound that intensifies based on how you’re driving.

ESTIMATED PRICE: The sweet spot for muscle cars is from $40,000 to $50,000, Dodge says, so figure the production EV muscle car will land in that zone—at least to start. As with the Hellcat models and the Demon, you’ll pay a premium for more performance, even as D odge looks to maintain its traditional power-per-dollar value.

Dodge Electric Muscle Car Looks Nasty

Dodge already announced it: there will be a next-generation electric vehicle (EV) from the infamous horsepower holdouts. However, instead of leaning on environmental scenes of puppies and lush foliage, D odge is continuing with its “Mopar more power” attitude to market the upcoming beast. D odge themselves exclaims, “performance made us do it,” and the eMuscle’s appearance has been a bit of mystery. However, MotorTrend recently released a rendering of the upcoming electric muscle car, and it looks nasty.

Is Dodge coming out with electric vehicles?

Dodge already announced that it would move forward with the market by producing a fully-electric muscle car. That’s an interesting concept, considering that D odge’s main segment competition, the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, have been smaller, more efficient cars for years. As a matter of fact, you can buy a 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost that will squeeze 32 mpg out of its turbocharged four-cylinder engine at highway speeds.

However, the automaker refrained from putting fuel economy on its list of priorities. The smallest engine you could get in a D odge muscle car was the Pentastar V6 in the Challenger and Charger. Time marches on, though, and Dodge is electrifying to meet the market demand.

What will an electric muscle car sound like?

Although many high-performance EV torque monsters produce a sort of turbine-like spooling noise, D odge seems intent on making a unique soundtrack. Part of what Kuniskis’ team is vying to make is a loud, lovable replacement for the internal combustion (ICE) muscle cars in the marque’s lineup.

Of course, the byproduct of trading the whiney supercharged V8s for electric power is mind-blowing and instant torque. So while the upcoming eMuscle electric muscle car might not have the same old-school charm, it will undoubtedly be the gateway to a new kind of American performance car.

 

When will the Dodge electric muscle car go on sale?

The Dodge eMuscle electric muscle car will likely be on sale for the 2025 model year, barring some organizational or market shift. As for the car’s overall appearance, the automaker will likely reveal the vehicle as soon as the end of summer 2022. It is currently unclear what price point the eMuscle have. Although Dodge says the base car may fall within the $40,000 to $50,000 sweet spot.

Of course, the baddest new Dodge EVs will likely demand a premium, just as the Redeyes and Demons did before. Scroll down to the following article to read more about muscle cars like the Challenger!
