America's Coolest Cheap EV Pickup Just Got Better

Electric Vehicles / Comments

Prices start at just $40,000.

With the Ford F-150, Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, Lordstown Endurance, and GMC Hummer Pickup EV launching within the next few years, you wouldn't think there would be any electric pickup niches left to fill. Enter California's Alpha Motor, an electric startup that specializes in affordable, retro-inspired EVs.

Last month, Alpha lifted the wraps off its first compact pickup truck called the Wolf. With a starting price of $36,000, the Wolf is America's most affordable electric pickup truck, while the retro design makes it one of the coolest, helping it stand out from the competition. When it was revealed, the Alpha Wolf was only shown with a single-cab, two-seater layout, but now Alpha has confirmed a larger Wolf+ model be available with an extended cab and four seats.

Two full-size doors provide access for the driver and front passenger, while rear occupants access the cabin with two three-quarter size doors that hinge backwards. In terms of dimensions, the Wolf+ is around 203 inches long, 78 inches wide, and 69 inches high, making it 15 inches longer, two inches wider, and three inches higher than the regular Wolf. The truck bed is also approximately 65 inches long, 59 inches wide, and 18 inches deep, allowing for 40 cubic feet of storage. For comparison, the regular Wolf offers 64.5 cubic feet of storage. An optional truck bed extension hitch can also increase the length of the truck bed by 40 inches.

The Wolf+ shares the same platform as the regular Wolf and will be powered by a 75 to 85 kWh lithium-ion battery with a range of around 275 miles.

Available with a single motor RWD or dual-motor AWD setup, the Alpha Wolf+ has a towing capacity of 6,724 pounds and will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds. Like the standard Wolf, the cabin features an abundance of tech including a portrait screen for the infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster.

The launch model is finished in a deep sand hue called "Twentynine Palms" inspired by the Joshua Tree National Park in Twentynine Palms, California. Alpha is already accepting reservations for the Wolf+ with prices ranging from $40,000 to $48,000 excluding the $7,500 federal EV tax credit and additional state EV tax incentives. For comparison, the single-cab version ranges from $36,000 to $46,000.
