Dodge has given us a preview of what the horsepower options are going to be like on the Daytona. There will be base trims and then different performance upgrades available.

These numbers are for the 400 Volt Daytonas, they haven't revealed the details for the 800V models.

400-volt Output Levels
  • 340 kilowatt (kW) – base trim (455 hp)
    • eStage 1 – 370 kW (495 hp)
    • eStage 2 – 400 kW (535 hp)
  • 440 (kW) – base trim (590 hp)
    • eStage 1 – 470 kW (630 hp)
    • eStage 2 – 500 kW (670 hp)


BEV Power and Performance Upgrades Previewed
Highlighting the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept’s SEMA visit is the announcement of nine possible powertrain outputs for the all-electric muscle car concept. Three different battery-electric power levels will be shown at SEMA, as well as two levels of Dodge Direct Connection performance upgrades for each power level.

Dodge is illustrating a stair-step approach to its electrified performance, with 400-volt system output levels of 340 kilowatts (456 hp) and 440 kilowatts (590 hp) and an as-yet-unannounced, factory-delivered, power-level 800-volt SRT Banshee powertrain package.

400-volt Output Levels
  • 340 kilowatt (kW) – base trim (455 hp)
    • eStage 1 – 370 kW (495 hp)
    • eStage 2 – 400 kW (535 hp)
  • 440 (kW) – base trim (590 hp)
    • eStage 1 – 470 kW (630 hp)
    • eStage 2 – 500 kW (670 hp)

Direct Connection Stage 1 and Stage 2 performance upgrades use a “crystal” key that plugs into the dash. Base output and Direct Connection upgrade levels for the 800-volt Banshee will be announced at a future date.

It seems more and more likely that your power level will be limited by your interior trim. How sad.
Why do you think that. You buy one if three versions of the car. Then each of those can be unlocked for more power later if you want to.

Your trim will be done on the assembly line. You can update power later or not. It won’t have anything to do with your interior trim.

Certainly the three versions might have different interior trim but the optional power at a later time will have nothing to do with it.

Just the way they keep phrasing everything. I doubt it will be any different than the current build system where if I want the 8 inch radio I also have to get the premium wheels. Makes total sense. Just like when I was looking for a new truck if I wanted power door locks I have to get tinted windows. Perhaps I am just being a pessimistic arse, but I am willing to bet that my desire for cloth seats will mean I cannot get the 800v system. That is a deal breaker for me. We will see, I suppose.
