If you want to modify your Daytona or any future Dodge EV, you're going to have to through them. Dodge is working to prevent third party tuners from modifying their electric powertrains.
Let's see if that'll actually happen or if someone will be able to eventually get through and do their own mods.
But at least modifications bought through a Dodge dealer will transfer to next owner when the car is sold
Dodge plans to make its dealers the first and last stop for owners wanting to modify future EV performance cars by closing the door to third-party tuners, much like Ford has done with the new 2024 Mustang.
Although the aftermarket will still be able to supply chassis and styling upgrades for cars like the production version of the Charger Daytona SRT Concept, Dodge is working to prevent them modifying the electric powertrains.
“We don’t want to lock the cars and say you can’t modify them,” Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis told Carscoops. “We just want to lock them and say modify them through us so that we know it’s done right.”
So it’s just as well that Dodge is planning to offer a stack of power, styling and handling modifications through its Direct Connection program that are likely to give the hottest version of its 2024 electric muscle car more than 1,000 hp (1,104 PS).
