Electric Car



An electric toy car is a motorized children’s car designed for children between the ages of 3 and 8 to learn to drive under adult supervision. Electric toy cars are a fun and educational gift, since children who learn to drive a battery-powered vehicle at a very early age develop and improve movement coordination, concentration and spatial vision.


Electric toy cars are battery-powered electric children’s cars, and are recommended for ages between 3 and 8 years, for children with a maximum weight of around 25-40 kg. There are all kinds of electric toy vehicles, both in the form of cars and trucks, motorcycles or all-terrain vehicles. Some models are reduced-scale versions of real vehicles or from the world of movies or comics.

An electric toy car is a perfect gift for children’s fun and education. When children learn to drive at an early age, they improve some skills such as concentration, since they must be attentive to their surroundings, and coordination of movements, especially between the hands and feet when operating the steering wheel and the pedal. In addition, they are made to be more attentive to their surroundings, so their curiosity about what surrounds them increases and they are more awake.

Regarding the technical specifications of electric toy cars, they are usually vehicles with one or two electric motors, powered by 6, 12 or 24 volt batteries, rechargeable from the mains, with a vehicle weight of around 30 kg, suitable for for a maximum load of about 25-40 kg and generally single-seaters. Some models have 2 seats, so the child can even walk his friends or siblings. They usually reach a maximum speed of 4 to 8 km/h, usually having 2 forward gears and a reverse gear. The autonomy of the battery differs greatly between the different models, but usually allows up to 1-3 hours of continuous use, with a recharge time of 6-8 hours.


For safety, they must have a height-adjustable seat with seat belts, in order to adapt to the growth of the child. In addition, it is recommended that children use these types of toys only under the supervision of an adult.

Many electric toy cars have a remote control function, which makes it easy for young children to learn to drive the vehicle. For children up to 5 years of age, who usually do not reach the accelerator pedal with their foot, an adult controls the RC controller, while when the child grows up and reaches the accelerator pedal, he can drive the vehicle by himself without need for remote control.

Many models include realistic features such as key start, start chime, steering wheel with sounds when turning left or right, headlights that light up when the vehicle is moving, reversing lights, doors with opening mechanism and closing, left and right turn signals, horn or music. Some advanced models include sophisticated functions, such as FM radio, MP3 sound player and even the possibility of connection with an MP3 player, iPod, iPhone or smartphone.

When buying an electric toy car, it is important to make sure that it has a guarantee against manufacturing defects and all the necessary approvals and certifications, as well as telephone support for breakdowns and a good technical service in case you need repairs or spare parts.
