As Elon Musk wrapped up his Tesla Cybertruck presentation in November 2019, he had one more thing he still wanted to show off.

“Oh, yes. We also did an ATV,” he said, as if he had almost forgotten about it.

A driver stepped out of an electric all-terrain vehicle and sped up a ramp into the cybertruck’s bed. It was a memorable moment, but not much was known about the ATV that, according to some observers, looked almost exactly like a Yamaha in disguise rather than an ATV that Tesla had built itself.

But now Tesla has offered a children’s version, made by Radio Flyer, of its so-called “Cyberquad for kids” ages 8 and up. Or, at least it did for a short while. Those quick enough to order one of the $1,900 tram ride toys can get it in time for Christmas. But maybe not.

Tesla’s online store currently lists “Cyberquad for Kids” as out of stock. A note below the product description says “Cyberquad for Kids will begin shipping in 2-4 weeks. Orders are not guaranteed to arrive before the holiday. ”

Anyway, it will be more fun when it gets warmer.

Tesla did not respond when asked if it would update the schedule for the full-size Cyberquad sale date that Musk originally mentioned. He tweeted It wasn’t long after the presentation that the Cyberquad would be offered as a Cybertruck accessory in 2021, but for now Cybertruck production has been delayed. For now, at least, the toy version of Cyberquad is all there is to it.

The Cyberquad borrows some styling cues from the Cybertruck including a narrow “lightbar” headlight at the front.

The kids’ Cyberquad can go up to 10 miles per hour, although there’s a setting that limits it to just 5 miles per hour. It can go about 15 miles on a full charge, though that will vary depending on the terrain and the weight it carries. (It can take up to 150 pounds.) The removable battery takes about 5 hours to charge.

Robert Pasin, Director of Wagon – aka CEO – of Radio Flyer, said the company is talking to Tesla about offering more Cyberquad riding toys, so the opportunity may not be lost forever. forever.

Mr. Pasin said Cyberquad for Kids has a unique technique and ability not shared with any of Radio Flyer’s other equestrian models.

The Radio Flyer is Tesla’s exclusive in-vehicle toy partner, which began with the lithium-ion battery-powered Model S that debuted in 2017. Pasin is the grandson of Radio’s founder, Pasin said. Flyer in 1917.

If you missed out on Cyberquad this time around, Radio Flyer still offers a Tesla Model S battery-powered toy for $500. There’s also a foot-powered “My First Model Y” for $80 for those who really want their kids to get into the whole Tesla thing soon.
