As Tesla’s Cyberquad for Kids, which has been prohibited in the United States, is apparently about to be introduced in China, the product will try to find popularity there.
After being removed from U.S. sales at the end of last year, Tesla is preparing to sell the vehicle in a new market and is marketing it as the “Cyberquad Toy Car” in China. It is currently available for purchase for 11,990 yen, or $1,670.
The Cyberquad for Kids, a 36V lithium-ion battery car for kids produced by Radio Flyer that was once only offered for $1,900 in Tesla’s online store, has a top speed of 10 MPH and can go up to 15 miles on a single charge.
The Cyberquad for Kids was created for children ages 8 and older who weigh 150 pounds or less and is based on the Cybertruck, which Tesla revealed in 2019 and is expected to be delivered to consumers later this year.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled the Cyberquad for Kids just ten months after it was first made available to the public because it “fails to comply meet the federal mandated safety standards for young ATVs, such as mechanical suspension and maximum tyre pressure.”
A 36-year-old who was riding the Cyberquad for Kids with an 8-year-old at the same time was the incident that sparked the recall. Due of the enormous load, the Cyberquad overturned, injuring the adult’s shoulder.
The CSPC to inquire about the circumstances surrounding the sale of the Cyberquad for Kids in the absence of a safety plan approval.
The company manufacturing the vehicle is supposed to submit one before sales or shipment, the agency said after noting that it “negotiated a corrective action with the recalling firm” after learning that one was missing.
Owners were advised to send their car in so that it may be disposed of appropriately. They would get a payment of up to $50 to cover disposal costs
