Did you ever thought of cars for young children in real traffic? It looks like someone in the UK did. A brand new car designed by motoring experts for five to 10 year olds is to launch for the first time.
The car has been nine months in development and has been designed by specialist engineers specifically for kids under 10 years old. The two-seater cars will feature twin electric motors, disc brakes, independent suspension, right or left hand drive steering and an innovative system that detects obstacles and stops the car to avoid collisions.
The cars will feature a contemporary body styled by car designer Chris Johnson, who has over 30 years’ experience in automotive and product design both working directly for car manufacturers and as a design consultant.
The training car has been specially produced by Young Driver Motor Cars Limited, a division of Young Driver, the UK’s largest provider of pre-17 driving lessons. Young Driver has delivered over 300,000 driving lessons to 10-17 year olds at more than 40 venues across the country.
The car will officially launch in May 2016, when youngsters will be able to drive the vehicle at selected Young Driver venues across the UK. Road systems will be created to allow the drivers to try their hand at everything from manoeuvring, junctions and traffic lights to reversing and parking.
The vehicles are entirely unique and are manufactured exclusively in the UK.
