New and exciting electric truck models are increasingly emerging. Arguably one of the most exciting (and perhaps less hyped) is the Alpha Wolf+ electric truck. Produced by California-based Alpha Motor, the Wolf+ is built both for utility and adventure. Its launch version will be featured in a deep sand tone inspired by the desert of Joshua Tree National Park.
Beyond the colour, the Wolf+ comes with a wide, powerful and rugged frame. Access to the interior is made through front-hinged driver/passenger doors and rear-hinged rear passenger doors that creates a wider, more accessible opening.
The truck’s electric powertrain makes more space under the hood for additional storage, and the rear bed is designed to be extended for great functionality, including for setting up a tent for outdoor camping. Buyers can choose rugged all-terrain wheels from 16-18” in size.
Capable All-Electric Powertrain
The Wolf+ is to be powered by a lithium-ion battery with capacity from 75 to 85kWh with range predicted at up to 275 miles (442km). It runs on a 4WD drivetrain powered by a dual-motor system, or on a RWD drivetrain with a single-motor system. It will accelerate from 0 to 60mph (102km/h) in just 5.9 seconds. It also has a towing capacity of up to 6,274lbs (3,050kg).

The MSRP of the Wolf+ electric truck is currently set from US$40,000 to $48,000, but that’s before potential federal rebates of up to $7,500 are taken into account. Alpha is currently taking reservations on the Wolf+ as they are with their other models under development.
