After being recalled last year for failing to meet product safety standards, Tesla’s $1,900 Cyberquad for Kids is once again available for purchase. in the Tesla US web store.. The latest release of the Cybertruck-inspired ride-on toy, identified as Model 915, is an updated version of the kids’ Model 914 Cyberquad that launched in December 2021. Orders for the Model 915 are expected to begin shipping in late November.
Like the Model 914, the new Model 915 Cyberquad for kids was created jointly by Tesla and popular children’s toy maker Radio Flyer, best known as the creators of the Little Red Wagon. The battery-powered Cyberquad for kids has a 500W motor with a top speed of 10 mph (which parents can change to 5 mph) and a maximum range of 15 miles, with LED headlights and taillights. Like its Cybertruck inspiration, this diminutive version of the adult Cyberquad ATV also features a steel frame and high-pressure rubber tires.
He The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall for the original Model 914 in October 2022 after determining it was better classified as a youth ATV than a ride-on toy. The Cyberquad for Kids did not meet federally mandated youth ATV safety requirements at the time, which are quite extensive due to the high risk of injury posed by ATVs.
Now, in addition to a modified rear suspension, changes have been made to ensure the product meets CPSC rules and ASTM F963 toy safety standards, including a slightly higher age rating of 9 to 12 years (in compared to 8 to 12 years, which remains the advice for Europe), a tire inflation warning label on the left front fender, and another warning label clearly stating that the product is not a youth ATV and “not for off-road use”…despite what that kid is doing in the promotional image above.
