A little over two years after Tesla demonstrated a very shapely full-sized Cyberquad electric ATV when launching its angular electric Cybertruck, a mini version for kids has gone up for sale on the company's webshop for US$1,900.

The Cyberquad for Kids features the same kind of futuristic sharp-angled vibe as its yet-to-be-released bigger sibling, coming with a funky full steel frame rocking LED light bars to the front and back. It rides on 16x4.5-inch chunky tread tires, and there's padded seating, adjustable suspension and rear disc braking too.

Parents can limit the top speed of the electric mini-ATV to 5 mph (8 km/h), but if that doesn't happen then two forward speeds of 5 or 10 mph are available, plus another for reversing at up to 5 mph.

The built-in Li-ion battery is reckoned good for over 15 miles of per-charge range, depending on the weight of the driver and other variables like terrain and whether the Cyberquad for Kids is always rolling at its top speed. And that's about all that Tesla is giving away.

Though designed specifically for riders of eight years or above, the promo video on the product page does show a much older kid having some off-road fun (OK, an adult) so it would seem that the only real restriction is the maximum rider weight of 150 lb (68 kg).

There's no indication when the full-size Cyberquad might start shipping (if at all), but the mini electric ATV is up for order now for $1,900 a pop and looks like it ships as a kit for home assembly.

Can't see a differential. Can anybody see a differential??

When I see stuff like this sell out in 5 minutes I can't help but wonder why other companies making ride-on electric vehicles for kids haven't bothered to update them in generations. They have the same 12v lead acid batteries you charge for 6 hours to get a few minutes of use from and the same smooth hard plastic wheels that work in the road but get stuck in your lawn. I don't think they have changed a thing even since my parents were kids.

These things kill heaps of kids in Australia - usually from hitting barbed wire fences.

The earlier kids learn not walking, the better prospects are for medical practitioners.
