Hot Wheels Is Making R/C Tesla Cybertrucks

While hundreds of thousands of people put down a $100 deposit for an opportunity to buy Tesla’s Cybertruck when it eventually goes into production, I’d bet that only a small portion of those people will actually end up buying one when they find out the true retail price. If you’re looking to buy a Cybertruck, but have a more limited budget, then check out these miniature versions from Hot Wheels.

Mattel and Tesla partnered up to create two tiny Cybertrucks, both of which can be remotely controlled. There’s a 1/10th-scale version ($400) that looks nicely detailed, and can hit scale speeds up to 250 mph. It’s got an all-wheel drivetrain, along with a telescoping tailgate that folds out to form a loading ramp just like the real truck. It even comes with a removable cracked window vinyl sticker because someone involved in the project actually has a sense of humor.

Then there’s the smaller 1/64-scale Cybertruck ($20), which isn’t as detailed, but still looks like fun. It’s a two-wheel drive miniature, and can hit scale speeds up to 500 mph. Best of all, it’s right-sized to race on any Hot Wheels track, so you can do loop-de-loops in this truck. Just like the real Cybertruck, both of these vehicles run entirely on batteries.

Both models are expected to ship in December, 2020. It looks like the larger version has already sold out, but Mattel is accepting names on a waiting list in case they decide to make more. The smaller Cybertruck is still available for pre-order as of this writing.
