Is the Alpha Wolf Electric Truck Worth the Wait?
Something about this truck makes us want to howl at the moon! The Alpha Wolf EV prototype has been placed on display for people to feast their eyes on. The Alpha Wolf electric truck could lead the pack.
Is the Alpha Wolf worth waiting for?
We’ve been watching the Alpha Motor Corporation for a while to see what the Alpha Wolf EV can do. For the first time since December 2020, the Alpha Motor Corporation has provided a tangible prototype.
It went on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum on August 24 and will stay there until the middle of November 2021. The Wolf EV is the star of the Alternating Currents: The Fall and Rise of Electric Vehicles exhibit.
The exhibit explores the history, development, and resurgence of electric vehicles. But the prototype emerged pretty early because the Alpha Wolf won’t enter production until the end of 2023.
This production goal seems like an ambitious target because Alpha Motor Corporation hasn’t revealed where their production plant is located in the United States. We will learn more closer to the production, which is years away. The first Alpha truck could arrive in 2024.
What to expect with the electric Wolf
The Alpha Wolf seems tiny but mighty. It’s smaller than the Ford Maverick, giving it some serious competition. It’s under six feet and or 1.83 meters long. It’s 190 inches long, 76 inches wide, and 67 inches tall.
It will provide an estimated range between 250 to 275 miles. This is impressive for a smaller EV, but we would like to see it reach at least 300 miles. The capacity of the lithium-ion battery pack hasn’t been specified.
The all-electric pickup truck will be available with a single-motor rear-wheel drive system. You can also upgrade to the dual-motor all-wheel drive system. The AWD model can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds and tow up to 3,000 lbs.
What is the Wolf’s interior like?
The Alpha Wolf that’s on display has black windows. This could mean that it doesn’t have a finalized interior. The prototype could be empty without even having a powertrain for museum-goers to look at.
Other photos show massive leather seats that are well-padded. The Wolf EV has a single cab with room for only two passengers. But the Wolf+ and Wolf+CLOUDBREAK are more significant variants to consider.
Alpha Motor Corporation says that the Wolf will provide impressive interior features, including a digital center display, driver-focused digital speedometers, and multi-layered center console storage.
You can get started in an Alpha Wolf with RWD for about $36,000. The AWD model increases the price to about $46,000. These prices do not include possible Federal and state EV tax credits and incentives.
So far, we aren’t sure if this electric truck is worth waiting for. The mid-sized Rivian R1T, Ford Lightning, upcoming Chevy truck, and more might offer more benefits, and they could come out sooner. We will keep an eye out for more information about forthcoming EVs.
