Tesla cars are surely for adults, but the cars are so attractive that even kids want to own one. Now they can have a car like it. Actev Motors’ new Arrow Smart-Kart comes packed with features that sound like those in a Tesla Model S.
A smart kart for kids
Arrow’s go-kart comes with a few features that make it like a smart car. The car has been designed by professional race car drivers, and it focuses on safety. For instance, the kart comes with a collision sensor on the front that automatically stops it before a head-on crash.
Also the kart could be connected to a free iOS and Android smartphone app, thus allowing parents to limit the speed, range and capabilities. And as kids get more skilled in controlling the kart, parents can gradually raise the top speed with the app.
Another feature that makes the kart smart is geo-fencing. Using this, parents can limit the distance kids can drive. When the kids reached the geo-fence, an onboard GPS tracker will automatically slow down the kart, thus forcing kids to return to the pre-designated area so that they can drive at full speed.
The Arrow Smart-Kart primarily focuses on kids aged five to nine, but even an adult can drive it (provided they can fit into it) as it support riders up to 200 pounds.
Tesla Model 3 coming out next month
In related news, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the Model 3 will be unveiled before the end of March, and the new vehicle will go into production before the end of 2017.
“We’re really looking forward to the unveiling of the Model 3 at the end of next month. I think this is going to be really well received, and then getting into production and delivery at the end of next year,” Musk said during the recent earnings call. On how much of the Model 3 will be revealed next month, he said, “We’re trying to decide whether we should show all the cards or keep a few cards close to the vest, I haven’t made decision yet.”
