Even if you can’t buy an actual Tesla Cyberquad yet, your kids can already get a half-size version. Or at least they might have been if they were fast, since the Cyberquad for Kids co-developed by Tesla and Radio Flyer only briefly returned to stock before reselling immediately.
The refrain “supply chain issues” has become an excuse for everything these days.
Not enough new cars? Supply chain issues. Can’t find a new graphics card? Supply chain issues. Your dog pooped in the neighbor’s garden? Supply chain issues.
But put a new one on the list: the coolest electric vehicle for kids – the Tesla Cyberquad for Kids – has been out of stock since almost the time it was first unveiled at the end of the year last.
Today marks the first time it’s been back in stock this year, though it certainly didn’t last long.
For the second time, the Tesla Cyberquad for Kids sold out in less than a day. This time it was just a few hours after back in stock.
The popular electric vehicle is capable of carrying more than just children, as you can see in my own video review of the impressive little electric four-wheeler.
The 120 lb (54 kg) vehicle has a weight capacity of 150 lb (68 kg), which I personally exceeded without any protest from the pint-sized ATV. I was even able to climb a steep ramp in my (brand name) electric mini truck for some real electric-on-electric action.
With big tires and a powerful drivetrain, the Tesla Cyberquad for Kids is more than just a kid’s toy. Which makes sense, because Tesla isn’t likely to put its name to anything that isn’t mastered for the task at hand.
You’ll definitely want to check out my review video below, where everyone from my young nephews to my retired parents had a blast riding the thing.
The Tesla Cyberquad for Kids retains the same design as the larger Tesla Cyberquad it was modeled on and features rear suspension, padded seat, forward and reverse gears, front and rear lighting, and two gear modes for easy operation. at 5 and 10 mph (8 and 16 km/h).
Priced at $1,900, it’s definitely not a cheap way to introduce kids to electric off-roading, but it’s also a pretty unique product. The 500W chain motor is much more powerful than the Typical PowerWheels you might want to compare it.
It also has a much more sophisticated powertrain with a removable lithium-ion battery and even a Tesla-shaped charger.
Unlike smaller kids’ toys with enough range for backyard play, the Tesla Cyberquad for Kids has a battery big enough for 15 miles (25 km) of riding.
It’s unclear when the Tesla Cyberquad for Kids will be back in stock. Tesla is notorious for launching unique secondary products that sell out quickly with long restock periods, or never restock at all.
Remember Teslaquila, anyone?
Considering the Tesla Cyberquad for Kids is produced by Radio Flyer, which also makes a number of other popular e-scooters and e-bikes for adults, chances are the small e-MTB is back.
Now it’s just a waiting game to see how long it takes for Radio Flyer to get production going again.
