News Pininfarina Will Pen the Upcoming Hercules Alpha Electric Truck

Pininfarina Will Pen the Upcoming Hercules Alpha Electric Truck

Nissan was once in talks with Hercules however it’s unclear if the Japanese automaker is involved with the Alpha


  • Pininfarina is one of, if not the most famous design house in the world.

  • Hercules is a Detroit-based EV startup company.

  • The Alpha is planned for a late-2022 introduction.


As far as we’re concerned, there’s more than enough room for another all-electric pickup. Although news of Hercules Electric Vehicles’ plans to introduce an electric pickup surfaced last year, this is the first time they announce who will design the truck. And Pininfarina will certainly ensure that it will be unique.

The Italian design house is better known for styling sports cars which is why we are eager to see what they will come up with for the Alpha. Hercules, which was founded in 2018, had initially hinted that it was working with Nissan to create an electric pickup. It was thought that Nissan was seeking help to electrify the Titan or, as pointed out by Motor Authority, perhaps it was Hercules that was looking to use the Titan as a starting point for the Alpha.

For all intents and purposes, that deal with Nissan is over and Pininfarina will begin working on the Alpha immediately. They’ll have to be quick about it as the Hercules plans to reveal their pickup in late 2022. If interested, you can reserve one now on their website.
