What just happened? Don’t have a spare $40,000 (starting price) for a Cybertruck? Tesla has launched something a little cheaper, though it is intended to be used by children. The Cyberquad For Kids is a smaller, child-friendly version of the full-sized ATV Tesla unveiled alongside the Cybertruck two years ago. It’s available to buy now from the company’s website, priced at $1,900.

The all-electric four-wheel ATV features a steel frame, cushioned seat and adjustable suspension with rear disk braking and LED light bars. Its lithium-ion battery offers up to 15 miles of range, though this can change depending on a rider’s weight—up to a maximum of 150 pounds. It takes five hours to charge the quad fully.

The Cyberquad has a top speed of 10mph with parental settings of up to 5mph, 10mph, and 5mph in reverse. Before you run out and buy one, Tesla emphasis that it’s designed for kids aged eight years and older.

If you have children and think this would make a perfect Christmas gift, Tesla writes that orders will begin shipping in two to four weeks but doesn’t guarantee that they’ll arrive prior to the holidays. It’s only available in the US right now, too.

As for the adult version of the Cyberquad, it was supposed to arrive alongside the Cybertruck—Elon Musk said it would initially be made available to buyers of the latter—but the EV has been delayed to 2022, so adults will be waiting a bit longer before riding around on futuristic ATVs of their own. You could always buy a Cybertuck-inspired $50 whistle in the meantime, once they're back in stock.

Like electric scooters were not enough.
Quads are technically motor vehicles, in civilized countries requires driving license and age of 15 or older.
When kids take It for a spin, accidents happen. And 16 km/h is a lot, when You'll think what harm could a cyclist of that weight do, running into You.
I hope Elon has some money set aside for future liability.

What, why? You want a kid to get their *** kicked because their parents bought him an electric bike?

I mean I’d appreciate the nastiness if there was humour to it but I don’t see anything funny here. You’re just being nasty!

These will be bought by the people from the country where their packages get stolen from the porch.
How hard will it be for a thief to beat up a kid and steal their 'Tesla Quad for Kids' ?!
Not very.

edit: No, I do not wish for kids to be beaten or their stuff stolen. But I'm not a thief or a junkie, or both.

Relax y'all. There is the chance the when Musk said, "the holidays", he meant, next years, or the year after.

After all, if he can't keep his $50.00 whistles in stock, it isn't an absolute certainty he;ll be able to do it with this either.

As a form of self castigation, I spent an hour online shopping for video cards last night. Y'all know how well that turned out. :poop: :rolleyes:

Now let me see a show of hands, which would you rather piss away $2,000.00 on, a GTX-3090, or Musk's Tinker-Truck ATV?

Hey, he might even throw in a free whistle, at least if he had them, he would. 🤣

Oh bullsh!t, this is Elon Musk we're talking about. He's our electric savior. Would anyone dare to say an accident was caused by anything other than the driver of this vehicle?

If I had a Twitter account, I'd contact him and suggest he offer optional (at extra cost), mounts, for a tentative reissue of his flame thrower.

I don't think there are too many bullies in rich neighborhoods. Everyone there has their own toys. I have a few rich customers. Their lifestyles and neighborhoods are not like the others.

There would still be bullies, they just don't care you are riding on expensive equipment.

So last night you got drunk and ordered a $2000 kids toy?

When does the 3090 arrive?

I didn't buy anything. I said it was "self castigation". I wanted to punish myself for being so mean here at Techspot sometimes. What better way than to shop for video cards you can't afford. It just makes me feel small to know that others here have 2 3090s, and I have but a lowly GRX-1050 ti. (It is the 4 GB model though.).

So, I pointlessly shop for better, out in the cold, with my nose pressed up against the scalper's window.

Would it be funnier if the bullies hunted them down with Musk flamethrowers?

I think it might be.

There are bullies EVERYWHERE... and depending on the child, I foresee plenty being bullied if they ever get one of these...

God forbid American kids would ever have to burn a calorie walking or biking. We have to maintain our status as "fattest country on Earth", after all.

So, I take it that you've never heard of "fraternities" at ivy league schools?
