We’ve been waiting and watching, and it looks like Lowe’s kicked off their Black Friday 2020 Kobalt specials a bit early!
Behold, Kobalt 40V Max-powered “Kid’s Car!” It’s basically a Jeep-like Power Wheels-like vehicle, but powered with a Kobalt battery instead of a bulky 12V lead acid battery that’s a pain to charge and recharge.
Your kids will ride around in style.
The Kobalt Kids Car has 14″ wheels for use in grass, dirt, gravel, or hard surfaces, USB and aux outlets for “little ones to listen to their favorite music while driving,” a working horn and roll bar lights.
AND, there’s a REMOTE CONTROL!
Weight limit looks to be 65 lbs.
Here’s what the driver’s control panel looks like. I’m guessing that’s the music system control panel on the left.
The speed range is 1.86 to 3.72 mph. The 40V Max 2.0Ah battery recharges “8X faster than the competition” and provides up to 50 minutes of runtime.
The KIT with battery and charger is priced at $299. Freight shipping is available for $55, or you can opt for in-store pickup.
My closest store is reporting only (1) in stock, and the next store over has (5).
The Kobalt Kids Car looks to be adapted from existing models you can find at Amazon, but with differences in seat appearance and battery compatibility (obviously). There might be other differences, but I figure these links could potentially be helpful for review or comparison purposes.
If you already have a Kobalt 40V Max battery and charger, you can get the car itself for $279.
Lowe’s is offering FREE DELIVERY on this SKU, or in-store pickup.
If Lowe’s has already sold out of the kit, you can buy this and the lowest-priced Kobalt outdoor power tool kits, with tool, battery, and charger, for $139 more.
Price: $279 – free delivery
Or, scoot along with ease on this Razor-branded Kobalt 24V Max-powered scooter.
It reaches speeds of up to 11 mph and has up to 60 minutes of runtime. The front tire is pneumatic, and the scooter can handle riders ages 8+ weighing up to 120 lbs.
It’s not clear as to whether a battery and charger are included (but I would assume they are not).
