Tesla, Radio Flyer offer kid-version Model S electric car for 499
This ain’t your grandpa’s small red wagon…
The people at Radio Flyer Inc. have collaborated with Tesla Motors to produce a drivable miniature model of the Model S electric-car for kids, filled with with lithium ion battery engineering.
The ‘Product S for Children’ comes in actual Model S shades. It's operating headlamps, a front luggage compartment, or “frunk,” as well as somewhere to plug-in a portable music-player.
In line with the Radio Flyer website, the automobile works for children ages 3 to 8. It's a maximum weight capacity of 81 lbs.
Parents can decide to restrict the rate to 3 miles-per hour, but the auto’s “flight rate” lithium ion permit it to achieve a top speed of 6 miles per hour. Radio Flyer states the batteries can charge in as very little as three hours. The auto’s value tag? $499. Radio Flyer is taking preorders on its website. Transportation starts in May.
Incidentally, the enormous Model S begins at $76,200 before-tax incentives. For equal sum, a purchaser might get about 150 of the infant Teslas, as well as alternative them upward with extras including car handles and vanity license plates.
But s O far as we are able to tell, Tesla is restricting its “Foolish Style” technologies to the developed people’ edition of the Design S.
