With a reputation for creating the technology of the future, especially in the area of transportation, Tesla’s catalog of products, from self-driving cars to low-cost solar panels, has proven the company’s expertise in energy-efficient technology. But Tesla, and the company’s eccentric CEO Elon Musk, is now making the move to children’s toys right in time for the holidays.
Earlier this month, Tesla announced the release of a “Cyberquad for Kids” on its company website. At a staggering price point of $1,900, the quad is made for children 8 years old and up and features a top speed of 10 mph.
But don’t expect to add the Cyberquad to your cart just yet — it’s already sold out.
Tesla has been in the news lately because of huge leaps in stock price — after rental car service, Hertz, purchased 100,000 Teslas in October — and more recently because of a new video game feature that is causing controversy.
Despite the new toy’s opportune release during the holidays, even those who purchased Cyberquads before they sold out might not be able to take them out come Christmas day. With orders set to deliver 2–4 weeks after purchase, quads are not guaranteed to arrive in time for the holidays, according to Tesla’s website.
Even if you don’t get to enjoy a new ATV with your child this holiday season, the electric quad is an exciting new product keeping the industry on the edge of its seat for what’s to come next from Tesla.
“From launching an agave-based liquor ‘Tesla Tequila’ to a humanoid robot prototype ‘Tesla Bot’ the company has come up with multiple quirky products in the past,” Reuters reported.
The Cyberquad is no different.
“Inspired by our iconic Cybertruck design, the four-wheel ATV features a full steel frame, cushioned seat, and adjustable suspension with rear disk braking and LED light bars,” according to Tesla. “[It’s] powered by a lithium-ion battery with up to 15 miles of range.”
Tesla’s newest product comes more than 2 years after the announcement of its Cybertruck, the $40,000 electric pickup truck, back in November of 2019. While Tesla enthusiasts had hoped for a full-sized, two-person ATV inspired by the Cybertruck, as Musk promised on Twitter, they were given a Cyberquad for kids instead.
Whether you expected a different type of vehicle or not, the Cyberquad for Kids is yet another expansion in Tesla’s product line. And, after recently completing a move to Austin, Texas, Tesla has shown no signs of slowing down.
