Mattel has announced a Hot Wheels-branded remote-controlled version of Teslas Cybertruck. It will come in two sizes and is available to preorder now. Theres a 1:64 scale RC Cybertruck that costs $20 and a much bigger 1:10 scale version that runs for $400. Both are expected to ship in December 2020.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has long said that his company would build an electric pickup truck. But as he got closer to revealing the vehicle, he kept teasing that it would have a futuristic-like cyberpunk, Blade Runner design.
Musk delivered (or maybe even overdelivered) on that promise when the Cybertruck was announced in November 2019. The stark steel-clad truck he rolled out onstage was unlike basically any other pickup truck on the road, which was essentially the whole point.
The Cybertruck became a viral sensation, and Tesla has even collected hundreds of thousands of refundable $100 deposits for the vehicle, implying that theres at least some demand for a futuristic-looking pickup truck that can also do pickup truck-y things.
