I often sit back, Scotch in hand, and wish that I was a child again.
Well, Tesla has gone and added a whole new level to this wistfulness.
Now I want to be a child on the company’s Batman-esque “Cyberquad for Kids”, as it is called.
I want to race around without a care in the world on the cushioned seat of the small, four-wheeled all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and feel like a superhero for once.
Tesla was supposed to release the Cyberquad for adults, but Elon Musk went quietly behind all of our backs and wrecked our adult nostalgia.
Sorry, I won’t continue to make this about me. Think of the children.
This steel-framed, rugged-tyred Tesla for kids has an adjustable suspension, rear disc brakes, and LED light bars on the front.
It gives 15 miles (24 kilometres) of range and can go at a top speed of 10 mph (16 kilometres per hour).
Only children aged eight and up can ride this quadbike, and you have to have a maximum weight capacity of 68 kilograms:
It is powered by a genius little lithium-ion battery packed with Flight Speed® Lithium-Ion Technology, which as per Radio Flyer goes something like this:
[It] provides maximum power throughout the duration of the ride. It has an extended range (15+miles) and charges 3X faster than traditional batteries.
The quick release Flight Speed® battery pack removes from the back of the ATV to easily plug in to the custom designed Cyberquad charger.
Mashable reckons that this Cyberquad for Kids is visually cool and that we can probably assume that the Cyberquad for grown-ups is going to look similar when it finally launches.
Good to know, good to know.
The price? Yes, it’s expensive – R30 000. But that’s not a problem because they are sold out as of yesterday, according to the website.
