Alpha Wolf pickup gets double cab in Plus version
A month after revealing its two-seater electric pickup truck named Wolf, Alpha Motor Corporation has proceeded to introduce a version for four passengers.
At 5,150 mm (16.9 feet) long, 1,980 mm (6.5 feet) wide and 1,760 mm (5.77 feet) tall, the truck is 385 mm (1.25 feet) longer, 50 mm (2 inches) wider and 75 mm (3 inches) taller than the main version. Rear seats are accessible via swinging half-doors.
The truck bed area still measures 1,652 x 1,490 mm (5.42 x 4.89 feet), and you can fold out the tailgate for an extra 1,016 mm (3.33 feet) of bed length. Interestingly enough, while the regular Wolf can only tow up to 1,360 kilograms (3,000 pounds), the Plus version is rated for 3,050 kg (6,725 pounds).
The body consists of carbon fiber, stainless steel and aluminum parts and comes painted a darker sandy shade. The front fascia looks the same as before.
Whereas the Wolf can be obtained in FWD and AWD variants, the Plus offers a choice between RWD and AWD. Power numbers aren’t there yet, but the manufacturer claims that the Plus version needs 5.9 seconds to get to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h). This is a third of a second faster than the standard truck can do despite the added weight, so a considerable power increase is on our expectations list.
The available battery options are 75 kWh and 85 kWh like before, and the mileage on a charge is reportedly the same at 250 / 275 miles, respectively (402 / 443 kilometers).
Prices have gone up a bit with the Wolf+ priced between U.S. $40,000 and $48,000. The single-cab version lies in the range of $36,000 – $46,000. Shipments should begin two years from now.
