Collaboration Award Winner: Tesla Radio Flyer

Winner in: 2016

The Tesla Model S for Kids by Radio Flyer is the first and only battery powered ride-on for kids to use Lithium Ion batteries. It was created by the kids’ product experts at Radio Flyer in collaboration with Tesla to ensure the highest levels of fun and performance, with lower impact on the environment. The Tesla Model S for Kids features the longest run time and fastest recharge time thanks to the use of Flight Speed™ Lithium Ion battery technology. When compared to leading kid’s battery powered ride-ons, the Tesla Model S for Kids by Radio Flyer charges faster and lasts longer, allowing 3 times the play per day. Traditional lead-acid batteries, which commonly power other ride-ons in the industry, demand overnight charge time to ensure full power for the next use. The Flight Speed™ Lithium Ion battery fully charges in as little to 3 hours addressing the common pain point of a dead battery. This means less hassle for parents and more playtime for kids. The Tesla Model S for Kids is also the perfect way to educate and introduce the next generation of drivers to electric vehicles.
