You can get your hands on a miniature version of Tesla’s new Cybertruck this December — an RC car that comes with a broken glass sticker and goes 25 MPH

Tesla’s got a wild new vehicle that looks nothing like anything the company has made before, and it’s even got a bold new name to match: “Cybertruck.”

The new Tesla truck isn’t expected to enter production until “late 2021,” but interested parties can get their hands on a (miniature) version of the Cybertruck starting this December – care of Mattel.

That’s right: The iconic toy company responsible for Hot Wheels is taking on Tesla’s latest hotness with not just one but two rad-looking remote control cars that are expected to arrive later this year.

Here’s what we know:


There are two versions of Mattel’s Cybertruck: A 1:10 scale limited edition, and a 1:64 scale standard edition.

There’s a pretty major price difference that comes with that size difference: The larger costs $400, and the smaller costs just $20. Both are functional RC cars.

Still, even at $400, the fancier version of the RC Cybertruck is a fraction of the actual cost of a Cybertruck — which is just shy of $40K to start.

The differences between the larger model, which Mattel calls “hobby grade,” and the smaller model are more than just size: The $400 version does a bunch of rad stuff.

Mattel says the more expensive RC Cybertruck includes the following features:

  • “Functioning headlights and taillights to maintain visibility
  • All-wheel drive featuring Chill or Sport modes
  • Tonneau ‘Vault’ cover
  • Telescopic tailgate that folds out into loading ramp
  • Removeable plastic body to reveal interior and access internal battery and drivetrain system
  • Reusable cracked window vinyl sticker
  • 9.9V, 3300mAh, rechargeable battery, 1:1 charge/run time”

In a nod to Tesla’s various speed “modes,” the Cybertruck has two settings: Chill and Sport. In the latter mode, it reaches a top speed of 25MPH.
