Tesla’s Cyberquad: An ATV for kids? Tesla has made available a child-sized version of the so-called “Cyberquad for kids” ages 8 and up, manufactured by Radio Flyer. Or, at least, it did for a while. Those who ordered one of the $1,900 electric ride-on toys quickly enough may receive it in time for Christmas. But perhaps not.
Is Cyberquad Only for Kids?
Adults who weigh less than 68 kg can utilize the Cyberquad, which is intended for children. The four-wheel ATV is inspired by Tesla’s Cybertruck design, featuring a complete steel chassis and LED headlights, as well as a front face that resembles the Cybertruck’s look.
The Cyberquad has a cushioned seat that can only accommodate one person at a time. It also has adjustable suspension and LED light bars, as well as rear disc brakes.
A Toy or A Vehicle?
The Cyberquad is not to be confused with a toy automobile. It runs on a lithium-ion battery, which is also seen in electric automobiles. On a single charge, the 36V lithium-ion battery can provide a range of up to 24 kilometers. The car can be fully recharged in around five hours using a standard wall outlet.
Radio Flyer’s Chief Wagon Officer – a.k.a. the CEO – Robert Pasin stated that the business is in talks with Tesla about delivering additional Cyberquad riding toys, so the chance may not be lost forever.
Cyberquad’s Unique Capabilities
According to Pasin, the Cyberquad for Kids features unique engineering and capabilities that are not shared by any of Radio Flyer’s other ride-on models.
According to Pasin, Radio Flyer is Tesla’s only ride-on toy partner, having begun with a lithium-ion battery-powered Model S ride-on introduced in 2017. Pasin is the grandson of the original Radio Flyer founder, who began the company in 1917.
If you missed out on the Cyberquad this time, Radio Flyer still has a Tesla Model S battery-powered ride-on toy for $500.
There’s even an $80 foot-powered “My First Model Y” for those who want their kids to get into the Tesla craze early on.
In November of 2019, the Tesla Cybertruck was unveiled for the first time. Tesla boasts that the Cybertruck has a range of approximately 950 kilometers on a single charge, can accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour in three seconds, and can tow up to 6,300 kg.
The Cyberquad’s top speed may be adjusted to suit the rider’s preferences. It might range from 8 to 16 kilometers per hour. It also has a reverse mode with a peak speed of 8 kilometers per hour.
Tesla is nowadays maturing its flagship Cybertruck, which Elon Musk, the company’s CEO, promises would incorporate Tesla’s flagship technology in the future, making it a technological powerhouse. According to Tesla, Cybertruck has already secured reservations for 1.3 million units, which is three times Nepal’s GDP. However, the release date has been pushed back to 2023 due to a production delay.
I would love to know what the climbing ability of this “toy” is. I’m a skinny guy at 135 lb and live on a 5 acres side of a valley and this looks like it would work well for getting around if it would climb up the side of the valley.
