Few things grind my gears more than scalpers and just a few days after Tesla launched its Cyberquad for Kids, some of those fortunate enough to secure an order are already looking to flip the electric ATV online.
A search on eBay reveals dozens of listings for the ATV from those that secured an order and are expected to take delivery in the coming weeks. Tesla briefly sold the Cyberquad for Kids priced at $1,900 but you’d be hard-pressed to find one online for anything less than double that.
Some individuals with orders are running auctions for the ATV while others have listed their orders as ‘Buy It Now.’ The most expensive we’ve come across has a Buy It Now or Best Offer listing priced at an absurd $17,000, almost 10 times the original asking price. There is also one listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $12,900.
Most of the Cyberquad for Kids listed on eBay range from $4,000 to $6,000, which is still upwards of three times the quad’s original price. That’s almost like trying to sell a base model Tesla Model 3 for $100,000.
Driving the Cyberquad for Kids is a 36-volt lithium-ion battery pack that’s good for 15 miles (24 km) of range. The ATV can also hit up to 10 mph (16 km/h) and can be fully recharged through a household socket in five hours. It will presumably be followed up by a full-size variant targeted towards adults and launched at a similar time to the Cybertruck.
