Dodge unveiled the Charger Daytona SRT concept in mid-August during its so-called Speed Week, and now it’s bringing an updated version to the 2022 SEMA show in Las Vegas. The all-electric muscle car wears Tricoat Stryker Red paint with a black roof and rides on 18-inch carbon fiber wheels wrapped in 305mm drag radials. Rounding out the visual tweaks are “Stage 2” badges both inside and out to indicate that this is the standard model.
Coinciding with the release of the updated concept is tech specs news as Dodge is finally ready to talk about some juicy horsepower numbers. For regular 400-volt models, customers will have to choose from the following outputs: 455 hp (340 kW), 495 hp (370 kW), 535 hp (400 kW), 590 hp (440 kW), 630 hp (470 kW), and 670 hp (500 kW). An additional three outputs will be available for 800-volt SRT Banshee models with even more power to echo the outgoing Hellcat motor with its 800+ hp.
Meanwhile, we’re being told that the regular Charger Daytona SRT will have 340 and 440 trim classes based on the amount of power in kilowatts we mentioned earlier. For each class, two eStage Kit power levels will be available with a simple over-the-air purchase. Interestingly, Dodge has developed a “crystal” key that slots into the dashboard to unlock the Direct Connection Stage 1 and Stage 2 performance upgrades.
A video display wall at SEMA shows the zero-emissions muscle car in nine different paints, along with the same number of wheels. In addition, Dodge is detailing the Charger Daytona SRT with nine Direct Connection upgrade levels to give a better understanding of what’s to come from the production model before mid-decade.
Also at SEMA, Dodge is conducting a survey among attendees to see what they think of the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust. The feedback received will be used to fine-tune the “world’s first BEV exhaust system” for a road-going vehicle.
