Alpha Motor Corporation (Alpha) unveils NIGHTWOLF, a distinctive electric truck edition derived from their upcoming mass-produced WOLF truck. The aim is to simplify and expand customization options, addressing the changing needs of truck buyers in the electric mobility era. NIGHTWOLF is designed to cater to the evolving preferences and expectations of the rapidly expanding EV market worldwide.
Adventure-Ready Electric Truck
“The WOLF electric truck was successfully driven through the Southern California desert during the Summer where temperatures exceeded 100°F degrees. The test drive included driving over rugged terrain, which also demonstrated the truck’s off-road capabilities. NIGHTWOLF speaks to the fun-to-drive personality that is engineered into the WOLF truck which includes vehicle customization that is user-friendly,” said Alpha Motor Corporation.
Alpha’s dedication to achieving excellence received additional validation through successful test drives of the Wolf electric truck during the first half of this year. These trials affirmed the vehicle’s performance and versatility. Alpha is now poised to extend its engineering prowess to NIGHTWOLF, catering to outdoor enthusiasts, adventurers, and people who seek a vehicle that supports their lifestyle while contributing to the greater goal of achieving a carbon neutral society.
NIGHTWOLF is purpose-built to conquer rugged terrains and tackle challenging off-road conditions. Its robust body-on-frame construction, complemented by durable lightweight materials, seeks to ensure enhanced efficiency. Alpha designed NIGHTWOLF with a low centre of gravity, achieved through battery placement central to the vehicle chassis. This configuration provides superior handling and responsiveness, making off-road journeys thrilling and enjoyable.
Customization and Flexibility
Electric Truck Accessibility and Customization” emphasizes Alpha’s initiative to enable customers to tailor their EVs to meet their individual requirements and preferences, promoting a more personalized and user-centric approach to EV ownership.
Recognizing that every adventure is unique, Alpha has designed NIGHTWOLF to accommodate aftermarket component integration. This empowers users to customize their NIGHTWOLF to meet their specific functional needs, whether for camping, overlanding, or any other outdoor pursuit. Users can mount additional equipment, such as tents, camping gear, and even portable grills, creating a self-contained campsite atop the vehicle—an ideal solution for outdoor enthusiasts seeking rugged adventures.
Solar-Powered Truck Cap
The Solar-Powered Truck Cap uses advanced solar panels that are adjustable to maximize sunlight absorption, potentially extending the NIGHTWOLF electric truck’s daily range by about 15-20 miles and reducing the need for frequent charging. These panels work by converting sunlight into electricity, which is stored in the truck’s battery and can also power various accessories, making it handy for outdoor activities and work. Additionally, the cap allows for easy customization by swapping out its panels with different materials, such as durable and waterproof canvas for a lightweight option. This adaptability ensures that the cap remains practical and sustainable as solar technology continues to evolve, making it a versatile and efficient addition to the NIGHTWOLF.
Incorporating Leading Innovations
The NIGHTWOLF features innovations from industry leading brands in automotive and outdoor gear, which enhances its capabilities further.
NIGHTWOLF showcases two roof-mounted 83L rugged cases from ROAM Adventure Co which provide a versatile storage solution for carrying outdoor gear, equipment, and supplies. The 83L Rugged Mount is a quick-release mounting system designed to be able to mount an 83L Rugged Case to the roof rack in under 5 seconds. With its universal mounting base plate design, it can mount to virtually any roof rack and allows you to lock your Rugged Case down to prevent theft.
“You shouldn’t have to worry about getting your gear from point A to point B. The rooftop-mounted Rugged Cases make it easy to store all your essential gear safely on top of your vehicle and maximize the space you have to enjoy down below,” said Patrick Frits, Marketing Manager, Roam Adventure Co.
NIGHTWOLF is equipped with 17″ Black Rhino Atlas wheels, enhancing its performance over rugged terrain. The Black Rhino Atlas wheel is designed from the ground up to assert itself in any off-road situation. This all-new Black Rhino overlanding Atlas wheel is engineered specifically for endless adventure and fatigue tested as one of Black Rhino’s most durable wheel designs ever. We know proper fitment is crucial, so we made the Atlas available in 16×8, 17×8, 17×8.5, 18×9, and 20×10 sizes with offsets ranging between -18mm and +38mm. In addition to the ability to offer custom bolt patterns with blank PCD wheels, the Atlas wheel is offered in the standard 5-lug and 6-lug patterns for a wide range of fitments catered towards trucks, SUVs, crossovers, and vans. Standard finishes for the Atlas off-road wheel are Olive Drab Green with Black Lip and Matte Black.
NIGHTWOLF’s lighting system is powered by KC Lights, featuring a combination of 7″ Gravity® LED headlamps and Gravity® LED Pro6 auxiliary lights, centrally mounted on the bumper beam and truck bed bar. Each Gravity® LED Pro6 light is powered by KC’s G6 LED optical insert, featuring patented Gravity® Reflective Diode (GRD) technology. This unique technology optimizes light output for superior performance, whether driving on or off-road.
The NIGHTWOLF also features the Delta Pro Shovel by DMOS Collective, providing users with professional grade tools designed for rugged outdoor use. Impeccably designed, incredibly strong, and surprisingly lightweight, the full-sized and fully-collapsible Delta Pro Shovel is the king of versatility. The blade is made from aircraft aluminum and only weighs 3lbs, 8 ounces. The Delta Pro is the ultimate entrenching tool for people who demand the best in their gear.
