Get your own Tesla Cybertruck for less than a Bitcoin thanks to Hot Wheels


Mattel has announced a partnership between Hot Wheels and Tesla, offering a limited-run 1:10 scale Tesla remote control Cybertruck through Target Australia. Enjoy the fun of the sci-fi vehicle from September 16.

Yes! You can have your own Tesla for under $200 - or $199 to be precise. The Hot Wheels RC unit includes working lights, a replica of the Tesla Cyberquad electric all-terrain quad bike, and a controller that mimics the Cybertruck’s innovative steering wheel.

It has a limited production run so you may have to get in quick on September 16. It is available through Target, with a “coming soon” page now showing.

Mattel previously introduced the first-ever Hot Wheels remote-controlled Cybertruck in the United States, three months after Tesla unveiled the vehicle, with all units sold out within hours. Now it’s Australia’s turn.

The mini pick-up truck features speed up to 11 miles per hour (or 17.6 kilometres per hour, for us in the metric world), as well as authentic rims and tyre treads, a Tonneau “Vault” cover, a telescopic tailgate that folds out into a loading ramp, all-wheel-drive featuring Chill and Sports modes, and a removable plastic body to reveal the interior and access the internal battery and drivetrain system.

Mattel Australia and New Zealand director of marketing Jacinta Whitehead says, “This is just another exciting showcase of Hot Wheels partnering with inspiring brands and bringing innovation to the toy industry, for kids and adults alike. We’re incredibly proud to bring the Remote Control Cybertruck to Australia. We’ve had a fantastic reaction in the US and can’t wait for Australian fans to enjoy this exciting new 1:10 scale from Hot Wheels.”

Meanwhile, celebrating Mattel's 75 years of creativity, the company also launched Mattel Creations, a global e-commerce and content platform to highlight the innovative creators of today and tomorrow and offer a peek into the creative process. Mattel aims to continue inspiring children to unleash their imaginations and explore the world around them through play.
