The brand carries them in its DNA and now introduces these elements to the BEV segment with a concept packed with patents, innovations and performance elements that embody the electrified muscle of tomorrow. The Charger Daytona SRT concept isn’t just a show car; can run a quarter mile “on fire”. When it comes to product cycles, he beats Darwin.
