And even if the complete technical sheet is not yet known, we find under its hood a 100% electric motorization baptized “Banshee”: according to the latest rumors, its power would be close to the 1,000 horsepower ! Equipped with an 800 V architecture allowing ultra-fast recharging, this engine should be found on future 100% electric productions from Dodge.
