    So they were right -- the Model 3 design is a bit smaller than the Model S.

    Enjoy... :)

    HA! This is freakin sweet! I'll be buying one of these for my little girl when I get my Model 3 so we can both have a Tesla. :)

    Summon feature, Auto-park with a remote in the parents hands and a Accessory hitch for Radio Flyer wagon will be perfect. 41tAixqhMML._SX355_.jpg

    That is nearly as compelling as the real thing. :)

    Back in 2014, someone had found a small kid sized electric car that was a two-seater, if I remember correctly... It wasn't Tesla branded, or from a major manufacturer... But I think it was called 'The Tiniest Tesla Competitor' or something like that in articles at various 'green' websites...

    OK, I found it... Not a two seater... Roughly the same size as the Radio Flyer, but cost twice as much:

    Hell, I try to never waste money if possible, but this thing, I will have to get - just for the heck of if. ...and to be able to tell my colleagues I have finally gotten myself a Tesla :wink:

    In all seriousness though (and as this vehicle currently doesn't ship to Germany anyway), considering this costs 499$ versus 210$ for the official Tesla 1:18 version, this seems like the bargain of the century to me.

    This is where you hook on the solar charger or generator.
    You can get a 120 watt solar charger here for @200 ish AUD. Would that charge it?
    A bit less range towing the trailer of course.
