Tesla has proven that electric cars can provide exhilarating performance. Moreover, EVs like the Chevrolet Bolt, BMW i3, Audi e-tron, and Jaguar I-Pace provide plenty of instant torque and commendable overall driving dynamics, not to mention the ars from the likes of Porsche and Ferrari. It only makes sense for high-performance muscle cars like the Dodge Challenger and Charger to take advantage of the many benefits of electrification.
Earlier in the year, during the Detroit Auto Show, we already heard the news that the upcoming Dodge Challenger was likely to get a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Now, chief of passenger cars for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Tim Kuniskis reiterated to Automotive News that its Dodge performance cars may get electrified powertrains.
