Introduced last year as the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept, the upcoming 2025 Dodge Charger EV is set to incorporate both the “Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust” for simulated engine sounds and an innovation known as “Active Vibration Enhancement,” according to a patent from Stellantis, Dodge’s parent company.

Utilizing sensors and force generators distributed across the vehicle, the patented Active Vibration Enhancement (AVE) will generate tailored vibrations corresponding to different driving conditions, such as idling and gear shifting.

Throughout the vehicle, sensors will monitor its status, triggering force generators to mimic engine-like vibrations under the supervision of a central controller, similar to haptic feedback systems found in modern electronics.

To boost driver awareness and pedestrian safety, Dodge plans to synchronize the AVE with the Active Sound Enhancement (ASE), offering both audible and tactile signals to indicate the EV’s operational status.

Acknowledging the risks associated with silent EVs, Dodge aims to address “unintended movements” by integrating customizable vibration alerts, including lane departure warnings, to improve overall safety.
