Henes Broon F870 Is A Real Electric Sports Car For Your Kid

January 2, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Technology is advancing and we’re seeing all sorts of odd devices being launched by companies all over the world. Some of them are relatively normal, others, not so much. Gadgets like Google Glass are trying to change the way we use technology and they’re necessary in order for the technology to advance, some of them actually catch on, others, don’t. On the flip side, there are some products that are just odd, don’t exactly bring that much to the table, but manufacturers produce them either way. Automobile industry is huge and many manufacturers are experimenting with electric cars or at least hybrids, well, what if I told you a company has released an electric sports car for your kid which is not a toy, not exactly.

A South Korean company, Henes, has unveiled their new product, the Broon F870, a child-sized electric sports car which offers some features you’d probably want to see in your own car. This thing has adjustable driving modes, independent suspension and a 7-inch Android tablet that serves as a dashboard and a control deck. This thing even has a Bluetooth remote control, so your kid doesn’t even have to be inside of it in order to drive it. You can even pop on an SUV and / or sedan bodies onto the chassis, the modular exterior panels are completely removable. The car is 4 feet long and tops out at 10mph.

This thing costs around $1,000, which is a lot of money, especially if you consider this is a car for kids up to five years old, older kids might find it a tight fit. This is an odd product no matter which way you’re looking at it, it’s hard not to look at it as a toy considering the fact only kids can fit into it, but… how can you call this a toy? It costs $1,000, it looks like a real sports car, only smaller, and it’s… well, awesome. I really can’t see many people purchasing this, it’s way to expensive and quite frankly I don’t see the point, perhaps some extremely wealthy people would find this appealing and buy it to their kids, I’m not them, but even if I had so much cash to throw away, I don’t know how smart it would be to buy something like this. One thing is for sure though, this is a cool product.
