Alpha Motor reveals more details on Wolf light-duty pickup truck
Alpha Motor Corporation has revealed more details about the upcoming two-seat Wolf light-duty pickup truck. The EV manufacturer based in Irvine, California, used its official YouTube channel to share a video of a working prototype of the Wolf light-duty pickup, roughly a couple of years after revealing the first computer-generated photos of the battery-powered vehicle.
The three-minute-long video shows a black-coloured pickup truck driving in a dry Californian countryside. The EV features working front lights and simple taillights. The all-electric mini pickup truck looks powerful on the countryside route, as seen in the video. It is worth-mentioning here that the manufacturer had said in the past that it would have a working prototype of the electric pickup truck by the end of 2023. So, the company proved what it had said earlier.
The self-styled Test Drive video also flashes a bunch of figures and specs on the screen, providing more details about the retro-looking vehicle.
As per available information, the Alpha Motor Wolf will come equipped with a lithium-ion battery pack with capacity ranging between 65-85 kilowatt-hours (kW). The base variant will likely have a battery positioned in the floor, while the long-range variant could have an additional battery positioned under the bed.
The recently published video also mentions that the battery’s charging voltage at 400V. The target range of the base model, which will likely have a rear-wheel drive (RWD) powertrain, is said to more than 255 miles (approx. 410 km) on a full charge of the battery (212 kilowatts or 284 horsepower). The all-wheel drive (AWD) variant is also said to be under-development. The power output of this variant remains unclear. When it comes to top speed of the vehicle, it is estimated to be 125 miles per hour (201 km/h). The target acceleration time for 0-60 mph has been reported at 5.8 seconds.
As per the presentation, the standard kit will include regenerative braking, electric power steering, an independent front suspension setup, and an impressive towing capacity of 3,000 pounds (approx. 1,360 kg).
Compared to the initially revealed specs, the latest specs are better to some extent. Initially, the company had quoted a 0-60 acceleration time of 6.2 seconds and an estimated driving range of 250 to 275 miles (402-442 km) on a single charge. However, the dimensions of the EV have remained the same since its debut, measuring 190 inches in length, 75 inches in width, and 67 inches in height.
