Come on. Admit it. You are envious that kids are having the coolest electric kiddie rides. I am know I am. But I am here to tell you that there’s no need to (be envious) because, you, too, can have a kiddie ride, but one that fits a grown-ass person (or even two!).
While “kiddie ride” that grown person can ride like Bugatti Baby II and Toylander 1 have atrocious stickers, this made-in-China replica of the Jeep Willy isn’t. Last checked, the 800-1200W “Chinese cheap electric mini Willys” costs just US$1,350 a piece (note: not the exact price).
Granted, it is not roadworthy, but it should do what it is made to do pretty well: off-roading, or so we were told. So, yeah, the days of secretly envious of kids’ PowerWheels is over.
Anyhoo… it appears that this mini “Jeep” is powered by a 1,200W brushed motor paired to lead acid battery. It looks like lithium is an option, but we can’t be sure. It has a top speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) and a maximum range of 130 kilometers (80 miles). Payload is a pretty impressive 230 kilograms (507 lbs) and it has disc brake all-round.
For those who are skeptical. We are confident that the Mini Jeep Willys Electric Vehicle is totally legit.
