As the future of electrified vehicles rapidly approaches, perhaps no segment has garnered as much interest in the States as the electric pickup truck. Major automakers like Ford, GM and Tesla all have EV pickups in the works right now, as do smaller startups like Rivian, Lordstown, and Bollinger. That said, there is one start-up automaker that has garnered a lot of positive attention as of late, mostly due to how enticing their electric pickup is shaping up to be. That company is the Alpha Motors Corporation, and their retro-inspired truck is known as the Alpha Wolf. Now though, the Irvine, California startup is debuting their second electric pickup truck offering, called the Alpha Wolf+.
As the name suggests, the Alpha Wolf+ is based on the same platform as the standard Wolf truck, which is shared across all of the automaker’s products. That said, this new truck is larger than its stablemate, thanks in part to its double-cab design. The Alpha Wolf+ measures in at 15 inches longer than the Wolf, while also picking up two-inches in width and three-inches of height. The added size allows for the addition of two rear seats, which are separated by a unique rear center console. The added size also brings some additional space out in the bed, which now measures in at 40 cu-ft. The standard Alpha Wolf only provides owners with 34.5 cu-ft of storage out back to work with.
Things are also a bit different when we look at the performance of these two offerings. Both trucks are powered by a battery between 75 and 85 kWh, and both should offer up between 250-275 miles of range. Like its sibling, the Alpha Wolf+ can be ordered in either a single motor or dual-motor layout. Unlike the smaller offering however, the single-motor Wolf+ will utilize rear drive wheels, whereas the Wolf is front-wheel drive in that configuration. This likely help’s the larger truck’s 0-60 mph time, which comes in at 5.9 seconds. The single-cab truck needs 6.2 seconds to complete that sprint. Furthermore, the Alpha Wolf+ has more than double the towing capacity of the smaller truck, with a rating of 6,724 pounds.
The Alpha Motors Corporation is an intriguing electric vehicle manufacturer, if not for their enthusiast-oriented mindset alone. This new Alpha Wolf+ builds upon their already desirable single-cab offering, and provides potential customers with a bit more usability. You can currently reserve one of these trucks on the company’s website, with pricing expected to start between $40,000 and $48,000. That’s a bit more expensive than the standard Alpha Wolf, but still quite a bit cheaper than other electric trucks on the horizon. Which of these Alpha Motors Corporation are you more interested in?
