Broon F8 — A Stylish New Electric Supercar… For Your Toddler

If you’ve ever thought that there should be an easy way of brainwashing and indoctrinating your children into having an appreciation of electric vehicles (no?), well, now you can.

Behold, the Broon F8 electric vehicle! A masterpiece of sports car engineering featuring a slick design, a top-end power-train (with an optional dual-motor all-wheel drive), Bluetooth compatibility, and a touchscreen tablet control panel.

Of course, as stated before though, it’s not a real car — it’s a toy for kids. Rich kids of course, as it is quite expensive for a toy — with the various options putting the price tag between $895 and $1,000. Yikes. You could actually find a decent enough, used, gas-powered car for that much to be honest.

But then it wouldn’t be electric, would it? Better an electric child’s toy than an adult’s fossil fuel guzzler, I suppose.

Anyways, there very likely is a market out there for Broon F8, so I suppose that you can’t really hold it against the developer — Henes Co. Probably worth noting here is that the company behind the Broon F8 is Korean. Kind of humorous in a way — the country’s real automakers have yet to truly embrace EVs, and here they are getting beat to it by a toy manufacturer.

A couple of last notes on the vehicles/toy: there are a number of different programmable driving modes, independent suspension for the front and back wheels, swappable body shells (different colours, etc), a top speed of 10 mph, and a four-point harness “seat belt.” Also, it’s designed for those 5 years old and younger. But hey, don’t we all have a little bit of a 5-year-old in us?
