Tesla Makes Mini Tesla S Car Models for Kids
Elon Musk's Tesla S is by every definition what an electric car is meant to be. Fast, well built, but above all else, it is absolutely silent. It's a machine that embodies the car of the future, and needless to say, it's a real hit with the younger generation as well.
Well, last month, Tesla decided to give kids a chance to drive the Tesla S by partnering up with Radio Flyer, a 99-yearold company known famously for making its bright red wagons and tricycles.
Yes, that's right. Together with Radio Flyer, Tesla created a special go-kart known as the
| MARCH 2016 ‘Model S for Kids,' and it costs US$500 (approx. RM2,086). Essentially, the go-kart is a scale model of Tesla's Model S electric sedan, and it's made for children age three to eight, weighs in at approximately 36 kilos, and has a top speed of 9.6 kilometers an hour. Unlike the real Model S, however, Model S for Kids can recharge its batteries in just three hours, and even better, it has swappable batteries.
There are other features on the vehicle that mimic the original as well. It's got a front trunk, has working headlights, and even a sound system with an auxiliary cord input. The biggest vanity point of this little car, however, is that Tesla is also including little extras, such as personalized license plates, for the little driver.
