Tesla made no promises the $1,900 toy would remain plentiful for the holiday season, and it's already gone.
It all started with Gran Turismo. From those early PlayStation days, Sean was drawn to anything with four wheels. Prior to joining the Roadshow team, he was a freelance contributor for Motor Authority, The Car Connection and Green Car Reports. As for what's in the garage, Sean owns a 2016 Chevrolet SS, and yes, it has Holden badges.
It's not exactly the ATV for everyone Tesla promised alongside the Cybertruck a couple years ago, but the Cyberquad for kids arrived this past Thursday. Telsa updated its store last week with this latest product, and to be fair, the carmaker said the ATV is suitable for "anyone 8 years old and up." I'd bet plenty of adults will try and take this for a ride, though do note Tesla says the maximum weight for riders is 150 pounds. Unfortunately, it's already sold out. As of Monday, the store page now says the toy is out of stock.
The ATV features a lithium-ion battery with enough juice to go 15 miles and boasts a top speed of 10 mph. When it's time to plug the Cyberquad in, it'll take five hours to top off the battery.
The design borrows from the Cybertruck, complete with a horizontal light bar and lots of angles. A full steel frame, disk brakes and an adjustable suspension are all part of the package as well. It weighs just 122 pounds, which is fraction of typical, full-blown 4x4 ATVs.
It's not a cheap toy, but that didn't stop people from snapping it up. The ATV costs $1,900 before shipping. Tesla also made no guarantee it would be ready for the holidays this month. Shipping times ranged between two and four weeks, according to the website. Perhaps Tesla has more Cyberquads coming, but it's clear, the demand is strong.
