The Dodge Hornet is ready to launch into the US vehicle market in the middle of this year. The Dodge Hornet itself has been prepared since 2006 in a concept car version.
This was confirmed by the CEO of Dodge, Tim Kuniskis, who said that the Dodge Hornet was present as a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) in a hybrid version.
“I think we said we would come back with a compact car this summer with the launch of the Hornet. We will have a PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) version in its variants,” said Kuniskis.

However, until now there has been no official display from the company to describe the form of the Dodge Hornet which will be a competitor to the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Nissan Rogue Sport.
The Dodge Hornet is likely to use the same platform as the Alfa Romeo Tonale compact SUV that will launch early next year. Dodge and Alfa Romeo are subsidiaries under the Stellantis group.
Another factor that supports this is the Alfa Romeo Tonale which is produced in Italy also has a PHEV version, just like the Dodge Hornet.
