This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in February of 2019. These electric cars for kids can give youngsters a sense of independence at a speed that's comfortable for parents, and we've rounded up a variety of styles to suit all preferences. For safety, always supervise children when operating one of these, make sure they wear a helmet, do not allow them to use these in any other way than they are intended, and don't let them drive off your property. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

August 19, 2020:

When selecting our electric cars for kids, we put safety at the forefront, and after that, we prioritized fun features that bring the driving experience to life, indulging little ones' desires to mimic mom and dad. Gathering a range of vehicle types was important, too, so that our list would be as diverse as the actual car market is.

In our quest to include vehicles ranging from small sedans to more sizeable rides, we included the Rollplay 6V Mini Cooper, which has impressive details throughout that make it nearly identical to the real thing. On the opposite end of the size spectrum, we added the Rock Wheels Toyota Tundra, with its four-wheel suspension and spacious cockpit. Even though it was a solid pickup truck choice, we removed the Rollplay Chevy Silverado because it shows scratches too easily. The Power Wheels Frozen Jeep Wrangler also lost its place as its parts turned out to be quite fragile, and it can't hold up to the rough play that children put it through.

For kids hoping to mimic the luxurious lifestyle of mom and dad, there is the First Drive Mclaren P1 Dual Motor, which has all the pizzazz of the full-size model. We also included the Moderno SLS AMG Mercedes Benz, which is full of features that give it high-end appeal. Another item that lost its place is the Huffy Ride BMW 6V. Though structurally sound and stylish, the Huffy Ride BMW 6V was removed during this update to make room for the Best Choice Products Lamborghini Aventador, which has an LCD tablet dashboard and swing-up doors.

If you're trying to teach your kids about hard work, the Peg Perego John Deere Gator is a helpful choice, with its functioning dump bed. The Best Choice Products Ride On Truck SKY3762 didn't present any real issues, but we found a better option for rough terrain driving in the Power Wheels Dune Racer, which has a lower center of gravity and safety rails on the sides.

February 11, 2019:

Even from a young age, kids can develop preferences in car styles. We included the Peg Perego John Deere Gator for the kiddo looking for something rugged. We added the Moderno Kids SLS AMG Mercedes Benz for a child who likes to show off his luxury toys. We put the Uenjoy 12V Racer for little ones who like to watch the race track for hours. And, naturally, we did want a model for kids who still like to act like kids, so we have the Power Wheels Frozen Jeep Wrangler.
