Dodge Challenger Demon will be the most powerful electric in the world

The Stellantis Group has decided to exploit the Dodge brand to give Tesla a hard time on the high-performance electric car market: this is how the idea of ​​creating a Dodge Challenger Demon powered by a very high-performance electric motor was born.
The intention is clear and simple enough: to create the most powerful electric sports car ever, a car capable of challenging, or even better, surpassing, the new Tesla Model S Plaid.

Stellantis is slowly making its way onto the electric market, and is doing so by re-proposing iconic models in a new electric or hybrid guise, as has already happened in the case of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe equipped with a plug-in hybrid engine. So why not re-propose another symbol of stars and stripes in an electric version of motoring?

The answer could be called the Dodge Challenger Demon, a car that until 2017 held the American record for shooting from 0 to 100 km / h faster, accomplished in just 2.3 seconds thanks to the Challenger SRT Demon model equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine capable of delivering 851 horsepower and 1042 nm of torque. Today Tesla Model S is expected to break this record with a time of 1.99 seconds - while it is able to travel a quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds with an output speed of 225 km / h, and for this reason the Auburn Hills technicians would already be working hard on the project.

No news has leaked regarding what the configuration of the new Challenger could be, but to be able to compete with Tesla's new Model S Plaid, Dodge technicians will have to equip the new Challenger with several high-power engines.

The Hellcat engine that distinguished the most powerful Challenger models is unfortunately destined to disappear, in a market where the cutting of gaseous emissions is becoming the fulcrum of many projects: from the ashes of the Hellcat engine, however, the Most powerful Dodge Challenger ever.
