Stellantis announced its short-term launch calendar revealed by CEO Carlos Tavares earlier this week. Included in the 24-month plan were 21 all-new electric products, among them was a Dodge plug-in hybrid set to launch in 2022. Although not many details were released about the new plug-in hybrid leaving many to speculate. The rumor is a 2023 Dodge Hornet compact SUV is coming soon and the world has been chatting about it, expected to use the same platform as one of the vehicles in its cousin brand Alfa Romeo’s lineup. The 2023 Hornet will use the same base as Alfa Romeo’s 2022 Tonale plug-in hybrid which is the same as the 2021 Jeep Renegade 4xe

The 2023 Hornet is similar in size to that of the 2021 Jeep Compass. Stellantis has a handful of options for the 2023 Hornet, likely to borrow the Jeep brand’s 4xe technology. The 4xe technology has great performance, made up of a 2.0-liter turbo electric engine. Hopefully, the rumors are true, the reason why fans all over the world have assumed a new Hornet is soon to arrive is due to a trademark filed in March 2020. Stellantis, formerly FCA filed trademarks that consisted of the “Hornet” and “Dodge Hornet” names with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The automaker also applied for the same trademarks in both Mexico and Canada clearly the 2023 Hornet will be available in North America. According to reports, the 2023 Dodge Hornet will start production in mid-2022 and arrive in dealerships as soon as fall of 2022 as a 2023 model. The Hornet name is not new to the Dodge family, using the name in a previous subcompact crossover concept unveiled in 2006 but never made it past the first model. Dodge has promised to launch the World’s first electric muscle car in 2024 under the Dodge eMuscle lineup. The automakers promised to bring muscle with them into the electric era, providing ranges of up to 500 miles per charge. Interested in finding out more about Dodge’s electric plans?
