In another episode of “Are you serious, Elon?” Elon Musk has tweeted that Tesla is working on a mini car that can squeeze in an adult.
We’re working on a new Tesla mini-car that can squeeze in an adult
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 5, 2018
The tweet was in response to an image that surfaced on the internet and showed a Radio Flyer Model S. One of the Tweeple asked Elon: “When Radio Flyer Model X?”. Musk responded by saying that they are working on a one-seater electric minicar.
The Radio Flyer, a reputed toy manufacturer, released a kids version of Tesla Model S. The toy car is rated for the kids aged between 3 and 8, features a 130 Wh battery pack and can carry the weight equivalent to 81 lbs.
The toy car has also been used as a reward in Tesla’s referral program.
The new mini version of the Model S which could fit in an adult hints towards a cheaper electric vehicle by Tesla.
Going by the history of tweets by Musk, it is very much possible that we can see a new mini Tesla in action soon.
As of know, it’s just a tweet and we do not know anything about its specifications, design and price factor but the idea seems quite interesting.
