Wolf electric pickup truck debuts August 24 in Los Angeles

We’ve been watching Alpha Motor Corporation for several months now. The California-based electric vehicle startup first debuted in December 2020 with the Ace, a small two-door runabout. Then came Jax, and in March announced Wolf – a compact electric pickup. And soon its serial version will debut.

Alpha announced on social media and website that Wolf will debut at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on August 24. This is not another rendering – this is a real car in metal, and judging by the teaser photos, it will be the same as promised. We don’t know if this is a working prototype or just a mockup.

Following the wildly futuristic design of the Tesla Cybertruck and GMC’s giant Hummer electric vehicle, Alpha has unveiled the concept of a cuddly retro Wolf pickup truck. With a small cab, modest bodywork and massive tires, it is clearly inspired by the compact trucks of the 1980s and 1990s, which were stylish but still quite simple in design and function. Fun, functional and inexpensive, these classic trucks are still popular. And with a projected starting price of around $ 40,000, the Wolf could be a fairly affordable electric car.

If the real Wolf is like the renderings we’ve seen, then we get a wide pickup with widened fenders, large off-road tires and chunky proportions that give it a proper look. If fully functional, Alpha Motor previously stated that the Wolf should hit 100 km / h in about 6.2 seconds and can travel up to 440 km on a single charge.

If Alpha Motor sticks to its early plans, then Wolf production could begin in 2023.
