Vehicles are used to maneuver on planetary surfaces. Planetary gravity affects the handling of vehicles. Currently, only the Scarab is available. Every ship can store it with a Planetary Vehicle Hangar.

A Surface Recon Vehicle (SRV) can be purchased separately from the Hangar module. If the player dies in their SRV, they will return to their ship, regardless of if it is still landed, or has taken off automatically. Any SRV damage is automatically repaired upon returning to the ship.

There are plans for additional classes of Surface Recon Vehicles. They will have different Internal Compartments for the Planetary Vehicle Hangar module which provides the on-board hangar space to carry and repair an SRV.

In 2016 during an AMA, David Braben was asked "is there an ETA for planetary mining? and will we get a special SRV for that purpose" Braben said "No ETA yet, but it is planned."[1]
