The Detroit-based startup Hercules Electric Vehicles has teamed up with Italian design firm Pininfarina to create a 100% electric, robust and all-terrain vehicle called Hercules Alpha, featuring a set of specifications that in addition to promoting sustainable mobility stand out for its strength and power.
The U.S. manufacturer made its debut on the automotive market with a vehicle that is committed to completely eliminate carbon emissions. However, the company ensured an expert in aesthetics to deliver a final product that catches the eye at first glance due to its body, and even more when discovering all the potential that lies beneath it.
The Hercules Alpha will be produced in 2022, which gives time to the North American carmaker to continue working on the SUV’s details, but based on everything revealed so far, there is no doubt it will be a vehicle to talk about.
