In multiplayer, the car matches the color of the player inside.

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.

Since engine units can only be built in assembling machines cars cannot be built entirely by hand from raw materials.

Achievements

Main article: Achievements
Steamrolled
Destroy 10 spawners by impact.

Using cars as storage

Cars can store a tremendous amount of items, move along transport belts and interact with inserters. Because of that, cars may be used as large chests or even as small trains.

Controls

Main article: Keyboard bindings

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.

Action Non-vehicle control Default binding
Enter/exit vehicle Enter/Leave vehicle Return (AKA Enter, carriage return, etc)
Accelerate forward Move up W key
Accelerate backwards Move down S key
Steer right Move right D key
Steer left Move left A key
