Tesla has launched a new electric quadbike designed specifically for children.

The “Cyberquad for Kids,” as it is known apparently suitable for Teslarati tykes aged 8-years old and upwards and can hit a “configurable” top speed of 10 mph.

However, it seems unlikely that any child, even if they run a lemonade stand and have a daily paper round, will be able to afford the Cyberquad – it’s priced at $1,900.

The Cyberquad comes with a full steel frame, cushioned seat, and adjustable suspension as well as rear disk brakes and LED light bars. A lithium-ion battery will be good enough for 15 miles of range.

As ever with Tesla products, you might have to wait a while. The quadbike is expected to ship in 2-4 weeks but the company notes that “Orders are not guaranteed to arrive prior to the holidays.”

The Cyberquad, however, cannot be shipped to Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico.

A short video accompanying the Cyberquad’s Tesla store listing also shows what might be a Cyberquad for grown-ups arriving in the future.

Company CEO Musk tweeted in 2019 that an electric quadbike will arrive alongside the long-overdue Cybertruck. However, with Cybertruck production facing supply chain issues, perhaps the electric ATV will arrive before its hotly anticipated larger cousin.

Yesterday, Musk also revealed a $50 “Cyberwhistle” designed to help you “blow the whistle on Tesla!” This, of course, is a fairly tasteless joke about current and former Tesla employees rightly bringing concerns about the workplace environment. 

Last month, for example, Jessica Barraza brought a lawsuit against the company which said the women face “rampant sexual harassment” and experience “nightmarish” conditions on night shifts.

In October, Tesla was also ordered to pay $137 million to Owen Diaz, a former lift operator at its Fremont plant, for failing to stop him from being racially abused.

Tesla disputed that verdict but recognised that it was “not perfect.”
