New Dodge Muscle Car for '24?


Recommended Posts

I bumped into this very interesting article about what Stellantis has in store for Dodge in 2024. In the article here, it reinforces also what I've thought about the future of ICE's and why auto manufacturers are going the route they're going. ūü§Ē

Until electric cars soak up 100% solar power, they still have to plug into power stations connected to Edison, which still uses fossil fuel to run it's power plants.

So just because the car companies say they're "green", the energy to make them move still has to come from dynersawers!

Consumers Energy to Quit Coal by 2025, Speeding Closure of Five Units

Michigan‚Äôs largest energy provider Consumers Energy will stop using coal as a fuel source for power generation within the next four years‚ÄĒ15 years earlier than previously planned.
In an updated integrated resource plan (IRP) filed with the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) on June 23, the CMS Energy subsidiary said the effort would lead Michigan‚Äôs clean energy transformation, and, if approved, it would make Consumers ‚Äúone of the first utilities in the nation to go coal-free.‚ÄĚ

Now we can look forward to what happened in Texas in February.¬†ūüėĶ

I tell people who are "so proud" that they own an electric car that their car runs on coal.¬† They don't seem to like that fact!¬†ūüėĄ

"Emuscle cars"....   Possibly eluding to Ford's Mach E Pinto....I mean mustang.  Seems to make sense to me to keep a proven look and style versus re-create the pinto with mustang badges.

Maybe it's because New York's electical grid runs almost exclusively  on natural gas, nuclear, and hydro.

0-to-60 time as low as 2 seconds

Range of up to 500 miles

Time to fully recharge batteries?

0 to 60 in 2 seconds? Yeah right. That's like blinking twice. False advertising. In reality, it's impossible to hit 60 mph in 2 seconds - electric car or not.

Half the people on the road today can't control what they're driving now. The answer is more power ?  EV's are here and many more are on the way in pick ups and SUV's as well as most any body style you can think of. Beyond the Piolet Error issues we are seeing with the ones on the road now there are many other  associated issues to consider. Recharging stations for one since our electrical grid is being taxed just to keep your home air conditioner going. What about Road Taxes ?, you know how are the owners going to pay their fair share of the cost of the road ways? Many taxing questions and we're trying to run with the EV's and we still aren't sure how to walk now.

It is factually possible for a car to do naught to 60 in  2 seconds, the Ferrari Ferrari SF90 Stradale did it when Car&Driver tested it just recently ,the 2022 Tesla Model S Plaid did naught to 60 in 1.98 second( under track prepped conditions) , so its very possible for this new EV to hit in 2 flat.

Top Fuel Race cars run 3.5 seconds in a 1000 foot run. Top speed is in the 350 mph range. They don't run the 1/4 mile any more do to the high speeds.

On the test track with professional drivers maybe. With ordinary drivers on the highway, they'll burn rubber on the tires before they actually get a move on. 2 seconds is like warp speed.
