Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV louder as Hellcat

Dodge hopes to cheer people up with this Charger Daytona SRT Concept, an electric muscle car preview.

An electromechanical transmission, aerodynamic R-wings, and a loud exhaust are among Dodge's battery-electric claims.

At the rear, a tuning chamber and amplifier send sound through the exhaust to mimic the sound of a Hellcat-powered Dodge.

The Dodge SRT Hellcat EV is expected to exceed the power, performance and sound of the gas-powered Hellcat EV.

Dodge says its 800v propulsion system, dubbed Banshee, enhances the EV's performance across the board.

Charger Daytona also has all-wheel drive and is faster than a Hellcat.

The Dodge Demonstration engine sounded impressive, with hints of turbine and V8 rumble, and a bit of high-end rasp.

As Dodge's CEO said in a statement, the Charger Daytona redefines American muscle in a number of ways.
