Here's a Tesla Car You Can Actually Afford and Give to Your Kids

If you can't afford a Tesla car, fret not, maybe your kid will soon be able to drive one. The American car company has partnered with toy-maker Radio Flyer to produce the Tesla Model S for kids. Radio Flyer has begun taking pre-orders for the miniature Tesla Model S, which will ship in May at a price point of $499 (roughly Rs. 34,100).

Radio Flyer announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with Tesla to produce the first toy-car for kids aged between three to eight. As pictured above, the car has a seat mounted at the back side of the car, and the front gates are presumably gimmicky. But it looks elegant, regardless. "The baby Model S is quite fun," Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted.

The kids' run-on will offer a top speed of 6 miles per hour - unlike Tesla's high-end model that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Parents can lower the speed limit of their kid's car to 3 miles per hour.

Staying true to its ethos, even the Tesla Model S for kids utilises lithium ion batteries for power. The company says that you can buy a more enhanced battery, which would offer 50 percent more drive time, for $50 (roughly Rs. 3,450). The car weighs roughly around 37kg.

It will be available in three colour options: Red, Blue, and Silver. Interested purchasers will be able to purchase a range of accessories such as license plates, car covers, and parking signs.
