While conversations about reducing carbon emissions are regarded as a topic for adults, it is beneficial to start kids while still young, on their journey towards environmentally-friendly mobility. There is no better way to do this than providing them with electric toy cars to drive and play with. Hopefully, the zero-emissions lesson will not be son forgotten as they become vehicle purchasing adults.
Fortunately, there are good battery-powered kids’ cars to choose from. They come in colorful varieties and styling that will appeal to your children. However, if you can’t be bothered going over lots of models, we have done that for you, and we present our picks of the best electric cars for kids.
Radio Flyer’s Tesla’s Cyberquad for Kids
Tesla has discreetly introduced a $1,900 four-wheel ATV for children. The Cyberquad for Kids is currently available for pre-order on Tesla’s website and will begin arriving in two to four weeks. The unexpected news comes more than two years after Tesla revealed a full-size Cyberquad ATV to complement its futuristic Cybertruck. The Cyberquad has not yet been delivered.
This new pint-sized Cybersquad is intended for children aged 8 and older, as well as those whose parents can afford to purchase them a $1,900 ATV. It has a steel frame, a cushioned seat, adjustable suspension, and rear disk brakes. There are also LED light bars to complete the cyberpunk look. This all-electric ATV has a peak speed of 10mph and a total battery capacity range of 15 miles.
There are three speed settings: 5mph, 10mph, and reverse 5mph. According to Tesla, it will take up to 5 hours to fully charge, and the battery range will be impacted by the user’s weight, riding terrain, and speed setting. The Cyberquad for Kids will only be available in the United States for the time being, and Tesla isn’t promising that the ATV will be available before the holidays.
Radio Flyer’s Tesla’s Model S for Kids
Radio Flyer also is responsible for the Tesla Model S kids electric car. Back in the day, you’d get this car as a gift from Tesla for referring someone to purchase a Tesla using your referral code. However that program has since been discontinued. The only way you can get your hands on one of these today would be on eBay.
Little Brown Box’s Chevy Silverado
If dad is a Silverado enthusiast, there is no reason why this model should not be added to the garage. It means your kids can be independent, even though they are not going beyond the front lawn.
This model comes with a 12 V battery and reaches a ludicrous max speed of 3.7 mph. Max weight capacity is 66 pounds. There is comfortable kiddie-sized seating for one.
Moderno’s Ford Mustang
Ford has been making great cars even before dad was born, and one of their most popular models is the Mustang line. Even Ford saw the benefits of making an electric version, which it called the Mustang Mach E, so why shouldn’t junior have his own battery-powered little Mustang?
This model comes in colors that will make many adults drool including hot pink! Furthermore, the mini Mustang boasts a number of serious amenities like a leather (not exactly leather, but close) seat for the driver, an MP3 player, FM radio, and LED lights. It is also powered by a 12 V battery.
Costzon’s Mercedes Actros
Some kids love trucks, and that is ok. While they will never be allowed near the steering wheel of a real one, your offspring can get a taste of the real deal by operating the Mercedes Actros. Fortunately, your kid won’t pollute the air as the miniature truck also runs on a 12 V battery that can last up to two hours of serious kid driving.
Kid drivers can also bring along toys for the ride in the storage compartment. Furthermore, this truck allows adults to take over the control to ensure safety. There are bright LED lights too.
McLaren 720s by Modern-Depo
What if your cousins or kid wants something a bit flashy? The McLaren 720s by Modern-Depo is so close to the real deal that the young driver might not even notice the difference! Ok, the size is a dead give away, but it won’t matter at that age.
The car seats only one but makes up that drawback with other features like doors that open upwards like the real McLaren, LED lights, music player, suspension for smoother rides, parental control when you suspect things are getting out of hand, etc.
