Innocence is the last word that comes to mind when one thinks about the Chevrolet Camaro. And the same goes for electric propulsion. This is because the Camaro has been a symbol of the American (automotive) dream for decades and the contemporary incarnation of the car is a perfect example of this.
However, it seems that General Motors has found a way of combining the three, while also adding the “convertible” world. No, the upcoming Camaro convertible won’t be an innocent electric machine. Instead, we are talking about a Camaro for your kids.
The vehicle measures 61 inches long (154.9 cm), 23 inches (58.4 cm) wide and 29.5 inches (74.9 cm) in height, tips the scales at 75 lbs/34 kg and has a “payload” of 130 lbs/59 kg (yes, your boy will be able to offer his girlfriend a ride).
The car uses an electric propulsion system, offering a cruising speed of 5 mph (8 km/h). The vehicle’s 12V battery needs between 8 and 10 hours to reach a full charge.
“Officially licensed kid's battery operated version of the Chevrolet Camaro. Perfect for your child, your grandchild, a nephew or a niece. This ride rocks!” stated the press release. Read more!
The Camaro Kids Car comes finished in red and features an integrated sound system that can play various effect and even offers an iPod/MP3 plug-in socket, allowing young ones to listen to their favorite tracks.
“The car's interior keeps young drivers entertained with electronic sound buttons that play different authentic effects. The vehicle has a MP3 outlet for the young rider to play music from any MP3 and/or iPod,” stated the press release.
The little car has a price of $349.95 (you'll also have to pay a $25 shipping tax).
