Dodge tries to convert its muscle car fans from V-8 engine to EV

In this article

But it plans to discontinue the gas-powered Challenger and Charger and the V-8 hemi engines that power some of the most popular versions.

Dodge’s recently debuted fully electric Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept is its attempt to retain the muscle car identity in an era when it’s becoming ever more challenging to sell a gas-guzzling sports car.
