The electric Cyberquad for Kids is built by Radio Flyer and includes a removable battery pack that can be plugged into a home outlet.

The company says it takes about five hours for the battery to full charge.

Some assembly is also required and Tesla’s instruction manual shows 18 parts that customers will have to put together themselves.  

The Cyberquad for Kids is only set to be available in the US, with shipping starting in the next two to four weeks.

However, Tesla is not guaranteeing that the ATV will arrive prior to the holidays.

As many scramble to place their order for the Cyberquad for Kids, more than one million people who pre-ordered the Cybertruck are still waiting to receive their vehicle.  

Tesla is one of the many electric car makers that has been hit shortages, forcing it to slow production on several of its vehicles and including the futuristic all-electric Cybertruck.

According to Musk, however, the Cybretruck is planned to hit the production pahse sometime in 2022.

Musk unveiled the Cybertruck in November 2019 during a live demo that ended with embarrassment – and some profanity.

Tesla design chief Franz von Holshausen tried to prove the glass was ‘shatterproof’ by throwing a heavy metal ball at close range – but the glass had the opposite effect. 

Musk was heard muttering ‘oh my f***ing God’ when the glass smashed.

Musk also said the entry-level model will have a starting price of $39,900 and a 400- to 250-mile range, while a deluxe option will be able to travel twice the distance and will sell for $69,900.

The four-wheeled ATV rolled into the back of the Cybertruck to demonstrate the loading capacity of the Cybertruck, however, the two were designed as a pair and the ATV charges when plugged into the electric outlets on the Tesla Cybertruck.

Production of the fullsize Cyberquad has also been delayed and is set to start sometime next year. 

On Wednesday, Tesla launched a bizarre $50 ‘Cyberwhistle’ that promptly sold out of the product within hours.

The new accessory is simply a small whistle shaped like the Cybertruck, Tesla’s ultra-resilient all-electric pick-up truck, which is yet to enter production.

The vehicle, called Tesla Cyberquad, was used to demonstrate the loading capacity of the Cybertruck, which can lower its rear suspension to accommodate easier loading of a vehicle on a ramp to the bed of electric pickup truck

Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a joke about whistleblowers as he promoted Cyberwhistle on his Twitter page on Tuesday, telling his followers to ‘blow the whistle on Tesla!’

His comments may be a reference to former Tesla employees turned whistleblowers, including one who is suing the company for ‘rampant sexual harassment’. 

It’s not the first time Tesla has sold bizarre merchandise – it released limited edition carbon-fiber surfboards for $1,500in 2018 and ‘short shorts’ with S3XY written on the back for $69 last year.
