In America, electric pickup trucks will soon be among us. Compact pickup trucks will soon be a thing too. What about compact electric microphones? If Alpha Motors Corporation can stay on track, the Wolf could be in a class of its own and now the California-based company is teasing us even more with a crazy version of its planned pickup called the Wolf + Cloudbreak.
The name Cloudbreak comes from a German company called Heimplanet, which specializes in camping and adventure equipment. Alpha worked with Heimplanet to create a special version of the Cloudbreak geodesic tent that matches the wolf, essentially turning the back of the truck into a platform the tent is attached to. Two access points at the rear allow indoor adventure campers, and the structure itself would be extremely durable for extreme camping.
“Cloudbreak is a design we’ve been working on for some time,” said Stefan Clauss, co-founder of Heimplanet. “We searched for the perfect structure that guarantees stability and provides comfortable access. Many structures offer one or the other but with this geodesic structure we have found the perfect balance. For the collaboration with Alpha Motor Corporation, we have adapted the shape to fit the size of the vehicle while allowing two separate access points, resulting in a unified vehicle and tent shape while maintaining full functionality.
At this point, things are still moot. Alpha Motors unveiled its retrotastic Wolf pickup truck in March 2021, followed by the extended cab Wolf + in April. The base truck would only spin the front wheels with a single-engine design and registration priced at around $ 36,000. A dual-engine configuration for all-wheel drive will be offered, with targeted performance measurements of 6.2 seconds at 60 mph and a range of 275 miles.
Alpha isn’t saying if the Cloudbreak will maintain those stats while carrying its expansive tent, but we haven’t seen it yet. any version of the wolf in the flesh, so the details are certainly still evolving. Likewise, it is not clear whether it will be offered as a specific special edition model or as an accessory that can be purchased for any wolf.
On the production side, reservations are being made for the electric truck, but at the moment there is still no indication of when the test vehicles will be on the road, let alone production models.
