Young ones can now zip around in a miniature yet functional version of the Tesla Model S, no license needed.
The kids’ version of the Tesla Model S is a one-seater and looks every bit like its full-sized sibling, even in the choice of colors — red, midnight silver and metallic blue.
Under the hood, the little car runs on a lithium ion battery and canreach a maximum speed of 6 miles per hour (~9.6 kilometers per hour). Parents who aren’t ready to fuel their kids’ need for speed can halve the speed limit through a simple switch.
Other noteworthy features include working headlights, a sound system and boot space for a couple of footballs. Like real automobiles, this car reverses too. There are also available upgrades such as a longer lasting battery, shiny silver wheels, Tesla-branded license plates, a parking sign and an indoor car cover.
The base model costs US$499, while the pimped out version with all the frills will set buyers back by up to US$800. Pre-orders are already open and the cars are expected to roll out in May. The only problem? Shipping is only within the US, so you definitely need a freight forwarder in order to bring one home.
