Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis made the announcement at the Stellantis annual EV Day event.  According to computer renderings of the upcoming vehicle, it is a car not an SUV.  And the four wheel car design is intriguingly reminiscent of the iconic Dodge Charger of the late 1960's.  The tires are big, beefy and wide.  The front of the retro styled coupe appears to have a LED light bar with a lighted emblem in the center.
