In a recent interview with Autoline After Hours, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis told the hosts that the Daytona will have 9 different power levels for customers to choose from, the max one being the 800-volt Banshee powertrain.

If you want a power increase apparently you'll have to reach Direct Connection for a package that would increase power.


When one of the show panelists asked what kind of tuning might be coming along, the CEO mentioned the sound profiles for the different ICE engines used in Dodges today, from Pentastar V6 to Hellcat Redeye. With the EV muscle car, he said, "We'll have nine different power levels, three directly from us, and another two on each of those, and the extra six will be from Direct Connection." He clarifies that he's talking about kilowatt levels, so buyers would buy their preferred trim at the dealer, the max being the 800-volt Banshee powertrain. When the buyer wants more, they'd hit up Direct Connection for some kind of expansion pack that would add two more power levels to one of the three base levels. On top of that, each of the nine power levels will come with a different sound profile run through the Fratzonic Chamber Exhaust.

So it is just three power levels and they are calling them nine because of base trim? Or if you want the mid-level interior/exterior design with the max power level you are just s.o.l.?
That's going to be the big question. They could split them up amongst the different trim levels and leave it there. But based on the interview it seems like you can go to a dealer and buy the power upgrade and get the software upgrade needed. Right now it is really confusing.
