You could wait for it: Matchbox’s cars will also be sustainable!

The well-known Matchbox – which is part of toy manufacturer Mattel – will make all its cars, including the packaging, from 100 percent recyclable materials by 2030. To reinforce that ambition, Matchbox unveiled this small Tesla Roadster for 2022. The cart is ‘only’ 99 percent made of recycled materials: zinc and plastic. The missing 1 percent is in the miniscule axles of the Tesla, which are made of stainless steel.

Matchbox tells you how to recycle the box

To make recycling the packaging easier, the box specifies exactly which part can be recycled and how. For example, part of the packaging is made of biomaterial, which you can simply turn into compost in your own garden. To make the mini-Tesla completely carbon neutral, Matchbox buys carbon offset credits, which go to environmental projects in Colorado and Montana.

What about the real Tesla Roadster?

The Matchbox Tesla Roadster will be on sale from next year. The state of the real Tesla Roadster is a mystery. The electric sports car was supposed to be on the market in 2020, but has – of course – been postponed. According to Elon Musk, it will be a bizarre device: with 10,000 Nm of torque, a top speed of 400 km / h and a range of 1000 kilometers. Oh, and he can fly, Musk says.
