This Electric Sports Car Is Just For Kids
Electric child cars just got a billion times cooler. Don’t look now, but your kids may end up owning a better car than you do.
Do you remember how much you wanted a convertible Power Wheels in the 1990s? Well, imagine that car with an Android-powered infotainment system, Bluetooth-based remote control, and more. Oh and, instead of coming from Fisher Price, a company called Henes makes it.
Henes recently unveiled the Broon F8 series, a child-sized electric “supercar” that has features you probably wish you had in your own ride. Never mind the independent suspension, differential steering and adjustable driving modes — this vehicle has its own 7-inch Android tablet that serves as both the dashboard and infotainment control deck (yes, there’s a sound system). Junior doesn’t even have to drive at all, since there’s a Bluetooth-based remote control that lets you take the virtual wheel in a pinch.
The Broon F8 will cost much more than your old Power Wheels kit, but it’s relatively reasonable for something with so many creature comforts. You’re looking at between $895 to $1,000 depending on the drivetrain. The car is still in the prototype stage, so your kids won’t be driving off in this car just yet.
