Alpha Motors is a young business with its eyes fixed on the expanding EV market. The Wolf Plus is a new electric pickup truck from the brand. Wolf Plus is an all-electric pickup that adds seating and doors to the company's regular two-door Wolf, which was unveiled last month.
The truck is still compact, measuring 5,150 mm long with a 1,652 mm truck bed and seating for four passengers. The pickup will have a range of 402-437 kilometers, according to the brand, and will be driven by either a dual-motor four-wheel-drive system or a single-motor rear-wheel-drive setup. It can reach 96 kilometers per hour in 5.9 seconds, which is not fast for an EV. It also has towing capacity of 6,724-pound that is equal to 3,050-kilogram.
The truck's design is remarkably simple both inside and out. The trunk is not overly styled, just straight design patterns. The truck has a rugged look thanks to the thick fender flares and heavy, chunky tires, but it maintains the brand's retro-oriented style. The interior is remarkably spare, with two panels on the flat dash – one for the instrument cluster and the other for the infotainment display. The only discernible switchgear is used on the steering wheels.
A roof-top basket, an extra-long bed extender, a solar panel that sits in the bed, and a large tent covering the truck bed and stretching out behind the pickup truck are all seen in the pictures. The company is accepting reservations for the Wolf Plus, Wolf, and other vehicles it is selling, although there is no word about whether they will go into production.
Alpha Motors is aiming for a starting price of $40,000-$48,000, which places it right above the standard Wolf, which is expected to launch at $36,000.
If my 6 ft 8 frame fits comfortably behind the steering wheel, I'd want to test-drive one.
