The car is the earliest alternate form of transportation available to the player. Although it requires fuel, driving a car is much faster than running, letting the player scout out areas or outmaneuver biters. Cars have a vehicle machine gun that can fire five tiles farther than the submachine gun, 80 slots of storage and 200 health, letting the player use hit-and-run tactics against small groups of enemies.
Cars can collide with objects. Both the car and the object collided with may take damage. The damage is dependent on the speed of the car and the health of the target; small biters and trees can be safely rammed but colliding with big biters and walls can easily destroy the vehicle and its contents.

Accelerating opposite of the velocity of the car will cause it to brake. Held acceleration controls won't have any effect after a brake. The faster the car is going, the longer distance it will take to brake.
