The new generation of the Dodge Charger and Challenger will lose the Hemi V8 as well as all internal combustion engines.
Previously, it was said that V8 will be retained for muscle cars of the next generations, but the representative of the company said that the information is not correct: the models will be only electric, and the current internal combustion engines and the platform itself will become part of history.
We are talking about the LX platform, developed back in 2005. For current sedan and coupe, its modified versions are used - LD and LA, respectively. They are designed for V6 and V8 engines and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The company said last year that it was working on an all-electric car, and the concept of this car should be shown in the coming weeks, the sale version will be shown in 2024.
The company's CEO had previously admitted that the release of an electric car would not mean that the production of fuel cars would immediately stop, and this gave rise to speculation about the possibility of the coexistence of gasoline and electric models. Now we know for sure that this will not happen.
