The production of one of the most well-known engines will also cease.
For many, the Dodge name is synonymous with thoroughbred American muscle cars, especially if someone likes the

At a deadly pace movies, as Dominic Toretto, who he portrayed, also raced in a pitch-black Dodge Charger in the first part of the series. The hemi engines manufactured by the American brand – or more precisely its parent company, Chrysler – also make the hearts of many car fans beat: the specially designed, initially V6, later The company has been producing V8 power plants since 1951. That story ends now, because as
InsideEVs spotted, the Dodge Charger and Challenger models could return as electric cars. Many expected that the American manufacturer would keep the gasoline V8
hemi-engines in its range until the end of the decade, and a pick-up as its first electric model will launch. In the United States, large and powerful pickup trucks are extremely popular, such as the Ford F-150 and its electric version, the Lightning, and the Chevrolet Silverado (and its electrified version, the EV of the same name).

However, it has now been revealed that it will not be the first electric vehicle in the brand’s range. In an email sent to Motor1, a representative of Dodge said that the Hemi engine will disappear from the future models of the Charger and Challenger, and the next generation of muscle cars will come with a purely electric drive. The paper previously published an article, according to which the latest generation of the two models will also feature Hemi engines. The company employee sent the following letter to the editor:
this story is incorrect. Our Hemi platform will be discontinued. The next generation will be a purely electric car.
The company is expected to launch the latest model of the two muscle car types within two years, and according to the newspaper’s information, it will not be possible to choose a petrol version from either of them later. By the way, Dodge has previously floated the possibility of a two-door, electric muscle car, but even industry experts thought at the time that it would be a separate model that had nothing to do with cars equipped with V6/V8 engines. However, according to current information, the situation is very much like that the company will say goodbye to the Charger and Challenger models with internal combustion engines.
According to expectations, Dodge can pull the veil off the concept versions in August this year, but it is possible that they will present to the public the EV version of the Ram 1500 and the Dodge Hornet PHEV, which will be a plug-in hybrid crossover in the company’s model range. .
