Like many, I am a Huge Fan of Elon Musk. He is one of those Rare Risk Takers our Planet needs.
His ideas and concepts are a breath of fresh air and the best part is he makes them work. Be it SpaceX, Tesla or HyperLoop, which has inspired companies to make it a reality.
I am always looking forward to what’s coming next from him.
Well this time his offering is for the Kids.
The company just started accepting pre-orders for its first kiddie-car, a US $499 all-electric model designed in partnership with red-wagon maker Radio Flyer.
The basic “Tesla Model S for Kids” (couldn’t they come up with a shorter name?) has a 130-watt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, working headlights, and a sound system.
It’s available in red, silver, and blue. It has a top speed of 6 mph, but parents can choose to lower the top speed to 3 mph.
It holds a driver who weighs up to 81 lbs; there is no passenger seat, but there is a “frunk” (a front trunk) to hold emergency snacks and teddy bears.
I am sure the kids are going to love this one.
