Tesla quad bike for kids sold out

Tesla Cyberquad

Tesla’s launch of their electric quad bike for children in China is a hit — nearly a year after the bikes failed to meet U.S. safety regulations.

The Elon Musk-led company began selling the Cybertruck-inspired toy vehicles on July 14. Priced at 11,990 yuan (approximately $1,670) and aimed at 8- to 12-year-old children, the Cyberquad quickly sold out on Tesla’s website.

Powered by lithium-ion batteries, the Cyberquad has a top speed of 5 miles per hour, a maximum load of 110 pounds, a range of 8 miles and a battery life of 1.5 hours.

A description of the Cyberquad on Tesla’s Chinese website reads:

Inspired by our iconic Cybertruck design language, this toy car features Tesla’s signature LED headlights and taillights, a sturdy steel frame and rubber pneumatic tires, and padded seats for added riding comfort and a fun riding experience for kids.

Failure in the U.S.: The Cyberquad, having previously been unveiled in 2019 during a Cybertruck reveal event, quickly sold out when it went on the U.S. market in December 2021. At a price of $1,900, Tesla sold approximately 5,000 units.

Although the Cyberquad was advertised as a toy, it met the legal definition of a “youth ATV” in the U.S., subjecting the vehicle to certain safety standards that the version sold, manufactured by Radio Flyer, did not meet. As a result, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall notice in October 2022.

In a statement announcing the recall, the CPSC said, “These ATV safety standards are in place to reduce crash and injury hazards, preventing serious injury or death.”
