Even if they're just learning how to add and subtract, little ones won't have any problems operating a Ford vehicle now that the new Power Wheels® Smart Drive™ Mustang is available! The realistic and high-tech, battery-operated ride-on-toy was developed in partnership with Fisher-Price, giving kids the chance to get behind the wheel. Car enthusiasts in the making are sure to revel in the car's original pony-inspired aesthetic and performance, but parents will be worry-free knowing that the Mustang is equipped with a variety of safety features.
Available in blue and pink, the mini-me version of the Ford Mustang was designed from actual Ford data. The product is a kid-sized Mustang that isn't too far off from the real-life, V8-powered version, emulating both the technical perks and the snazzy style of its adult-sized predecessor.
As Gary Collins, the senior manager of design for Power Wheels, said, “Mustang is one of our best-selling sports cars. For the Smart Drive Mustang, we wanted to amp up the realistic driving experience to make the feeling of getting behind the wheel even more thrilling for kids.” Watch the new stallion in the video below:
New to Power Wheels vehicles is the Smart Drive system, which makes its debut in the kid-friendly Mustang. Much like the full-sized car, the system includes traction control, to monitor for wheel slip and adjust motor speeds; stability monitoring, to detect when a car is reaching treacherous angles; digital speed control and battery monitoring, to give parents access to speed control; and slow start and stop, to provide a spectrum for acceleration and deceleration. In addition, the Mustang sports a built-in sound system that incorporates actual engine sounds from a real Mustang. Kids can also play their own music using an auxiliary input that connects to the largest speaker ever integrated into a Fisher-Price product.
