Breaking: Tesla Begins Selling A Scaled-Down Cyberquad With 150lbs Carrying Capacity & 15 Miles Range
Tesla announced the Cybertruck back in 2019. At the unveiling event, in addition to the futuristic full-sized truck, the EV maker also showed off a four-wheel ATV (all-terrain vehicle). Tesla calls the Cybertruck inspired ATV, Cyberquad.
According to Tesla, the Cyberquad is initially expected to be offered as a Cybertruck accessory, meaning it can only be ordered as an option with a Cybertruck order. In the past, Elon Musk speaking about the Cyberquad has said “the ATV is an interesting design challenge because ATVs are pretty dangerous, we want to make an ATV that is the least dangerous.”
Besides Musk’s aspiration to make the safest ATV, there isn’t much known about the Cyberquad’s specs. All the information we have so far includes that it can carry two people, it will have a really low center of gravity because the battery packs will be placed down low, and according to Musk the Cyberquad will also have a suspension that will ensure the vehicle won’t roll.”

Since Tesla has delayed volume production of the Cybertruck to early 2023, we won’t expect the Cyberquad to be delivered before then. However, for those who can’t wait, Tesla has just announced a miniature version of the Cyberquad.
Tesla calls the miniature ATV the Cyberquad for Kids and it was made in collaboration with Radio Flyer. Tesla has worked several times with Radio Flyer to produce versions of the company’s EVs for children. On the product description for the Cyberquad for Kids Tesla writes...
Get ready for any adventure with the all-electric Cyberquad for Kids. Inspired by our iconic Cybertruck design, the four-wheel ATV features a full steel frame, cushioned seat, and adjustable suspension with rear disk braking and LED light bars. Powered by a lithium-ion battery with up to 15 miles of range and a configurable top speed of 10 mph, Cyberquad for Kids is suitable for anyone 8-years old and up.
Additional specs of the Cyberquad for Kids include a 150lbs maximum weight carrying capacity, 36V lithium-ion battery, and performance disc brakes. The Cyberquad for kids is so over-specced it actually feels like it will be able to handle smaller adults with no problem.
Currently, Tesla is selling the Cyberquad for Kids on the EV maker’s website for $1,900 apiece. Deliveries are expected to begin in the next 2 to 4 weeks. Unlike the Cyberwhitle which sold out within minutes, you can still buy the Cybertquad online in the Tesla store.
