In a bid to broaden its electric muscle car lineup, Dodge is reportedly gearing up to unveil a more accessible rear-wheel-drive version of the Charger Daytona EV.

Sources close to the development, cited by Mopar Insiders, suggest that this new iteration, dubbed the GT model, aims to offer enthusiasts a taste of the iconic Daytona experience at a lower price point.

Expected to hit the market in the latter half of 2025, the Charger Daytona GT will come in both sedan and coupe body types, reminiscent of its ICE-powered predecessor’s versatile lineup.

Unlike its all-wheel-drive counterparts, the GT variant will sport only one electric drive module (EDM), resulting in slightly reduced power output.

While specifics remain unconfirmed, projections hint at around 300 horsepower, echoing the performance of the outgoing V6-powered GT models. However, Dodge’s expertise in tuning EDMs leaves room for optimism regarding potential power enhancements.

Despite the slight dip in power, the Charger Daytona GT promises a silver lining for electric car enthusiasts. Sources suggest that it will boast a superior range compared to its AWD siblings, addressing one of the primary concerns surrounding electric vehicles.

While exact figures are yet to surface, it’s anticipated to surpass the estimated 317-mile range of the Charger Daytona R/T.

Furthermore, affordability seems to be a key focus for the Charger Daytona GT, with insiders hinting at a price point lower than the initial trims introduced.

This strategic move aims to make electric muscle cars more accessible to a broader audience, potentially accelerating the adoption of electrification in the performance vehicle segment.
