Starting with Sonic Adventure 3: East Coast Minute, vehicles take a major role in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They allow the player to explore, navigate and observe the games' hub worlds; through air, on water, by train, and on land.

Like the vast majority of open-world games, vehicles in-game are not licensed, and thus are not directly named, based or referenced to any real-life vehicle. As a result of this, all vehicles are given fictional names (both model and make), as well as numerous design inspirations, and in-game names and quotes hint references to real-life sources.
