Do you know the electric cars for children in shopping malls? Well this makes them all look ridiculous

The first electric car in the UK. This is how the Young Driver Motor Cars company catalogs its new electric car for children: the Firefly Sport.

Normally we would say that it is another of the many electric cars for children, but the truth is that it has nothing to do with with anyone we know.

His first car, in the strict sense of the word

The Firefly Sport has everything it takes to be considered a scaled-down real car, and that makes it as close to a real car as a child can drive. at least legally (obviously not by the road).

Although there are fewer and fewer, there are still thousands of children who love cars who dream of driving before they reach the legal age to do so. There are hundreds of options to liven up the wait, from driving simulators to multiple models of electric cars for kids.

The latter have become especially popular in recent years. The problem is that they take up a lot of space at home and most are not exactly cheap, especially some. But there is the possibility of renting them, in fact, there are more and more malls that offer this option.

In the same way as in the real car market, there are many alternatives available, but the British company’s proposal Young Drive Motor Cars is especially striking.

It’s called Firefly Sport and it has nothing to do with the typical children’s cars that circulate through the corridors of shopping centers. That its creators consider it a real car may seem pretentious, but the truth is that it incorporates many solutions inherited from real cars.

Without going any further, those responsible for the project have worked on brands such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Land Rover y MG. All of them have been in charge of designing the Firefly Sport with parts and components of British origin, which is why they consider it the first 100% electric car in the United Kingdom.

Of course, it’s built in the West Midlands, the heart of the British motor industry, and series production started this month, so it’s on sale now, but only through local suppliers. Of course, his DNA couldn’t be more British.

It is aimed at children between 4 and 10 years old (although an adult can get behind the wheel) and some of its specifications could perfectly pass for those of a conventional car. It is the case of aluminum chassis, independent suspensionrack steering or alloy wheels.

It also has LED headlights, turn signals, brake lights and unlimited options when it comes to painting the body. Inside, highlights the digital Instrumentation, showing the battery charge percentage, speed and time.

Also has reversing camera and a central screen from which you can choose the music or one of the 1,000 available sound effects. In addition, there are two types of seats available and the driver’s seat is always adjustable with various settings. Upholstery colors can also be custom configured.

Bringing it to life are two synchronized electric motors and Young Drive Motor Cars promises that they are designed to mimic the operation of a real electric car and that driving is as similar as possible. Various batteries are available and even a solar charging option.

The bad? As usual in these cases: the price. It is available from £11,500 with taxes included (20% VAT). It is the equivalent of 13,530 euros, not counting that VAT in Spain is 21%. It does not reach the 100,000 euros of the Ferrari Testa Rossa J, but it cannot be said that this “first car” is exactly affordable.
