They sold you a bad alternator or there is a fuse blown for the charging system. Just because it is new doesn't mean it's good.

If the battery is being drained while driving, the alternator is not producing enough electricity to operated the electrical systems in the vehicle and charge the battery. Have someone with a meter check the alternator while the vehicle is running.
