Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Ride-On Will Prepare Kids For The Electric Muscle Car Revolution

Sports Cars / 8 Comments

Priced around $200, it's a lot cheaper than the real deal.

The Dodge Charger and Challenger are nearing the end of the road, and to celebrate, the company has released several Last Call special editions to say goodbye to the iconic duo. Now, thanks to toymaker iRerts, kids can get in on the fun with their own miniature version of the mighty Charger SRT Hellcat.

First discovered by Mopar Insiders, the ride-on toy car is inspired by the menacing sedan but is much smaller than its life-sized sibling. Measuring 42.91 inches long, 26.77 inches wide, and standing just 19.69 inches tall, it's designed for smaller kids between the ages of two and five.

Where the real deal is powered by a 717-horsepower supercharged V8, the iRerts version gains motivation from two 390-watt motors and a 12-volt battery, giving it a top speed of 2.8 mph.

The battery provides up to two hours of fun, but it's best to recharge the vehicle overnight, which requires eight to 12 hours. While this charging time may suck, it will give them their first taste of electric vehicle ownership.

Should your little one grow tired of driving, a remote control enables a parent to take over and chauffeur their offspring to and fro. The Charger boasts several luxuries that make commuting around the garden a cinch. Toddlers will enjoy the plastic wheels, which smooth out the ride (regardless of the surface), while a one-touch starter button allows kids to set off with ease.

The LED lights look fantastic and add a healthy dose of realism to the package. Other nifty features include a USB port, Bluetooth, a power display, and a seatbelt to keep your young one safe. Naturally, there's a functional horn and a "Sport+" function. We'd like to think this disables the traction and stability control so the younglings can get some sideways action.

Or perhaps it plays a V8 soundtrack via the standard sound system...

This will help the kids get used to electric muscle cars like the Charger Daytona SRT concept. This electric muscle car features a Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust, which amplifies the noise made by the electric motors and creates a distinctive sound.

Several colors, including red, black, pink, and white, are available to choose from. The twin-spoke wheels are painted black and have red brake calipers, which will appeal to any gearhead in the making. This isn't the first time iRerts has offered an electric Dodge ride-on car. Last year, the company revealed a Challenger variant that could also be specified with a police livery.

If your children aren't into exotic cars (like this ride-on toy version of the McLaren Senna), this Charger could just be the catalyst that transforms them into Detroit muscle car lovers. Priced between $199.99 to $249.99, it's much cheaper than an authentic Charger - especially with the exorbitant markups plaguing cars like this.
