2023 Dodge Hornet plug-in hybrid is all set to make its debut in August.
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said on Tuesday that the brand has plans to unveil its plug-in hybrid, the 2023 Dodge Hornet in August.
Last year, Stellantis confirmed that Dodge’s first plug-in hybrid willl be revealed in 2022. The Internet was filled with rumours and concept pictures of the upcoming car. It would be either a compact SUV or a crossover called Hornet. Not long ago, the Alfa Romeo Tonale was revealed in February and leaked photos of a Tonale sporting the Dodge logo was going over the internet. People speculated it would be a possible prototype of the Hornet.
Tim Kuniskis said in a virtual news conference, that Dodge is gearing up to reveal its plug-in hybrid in August. The plan could be affected by the ongoing supply chain shortage that is causing delays in deliveries and car launches. Though, Tim hasn’t revealed much information about the upcoming Hornet. It will be assembled in Pomigliano, Italy. The Tonale is made in the same plant.
Spec: Engine & Performance
The Alfa Romeo Tonale plug-in hybrid has a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor. The combination makes 272 horsepower. Although it’s just speculation, we think that the 2024 Dodge Hornet will come with the similar specs and powertrain setup. It will possibly go on sale in 2023.
The company has plans to unveil its 2024 concept eMuscle too. Tim has said Dodge has plans to unveil the concept before the plug-in hybrid’s reveal. It will be similar and will carry the looks of the Charger and the Challenger during the 1970s. We are excited to know the official specs after the unveiling.
