Vehicles can be used to traverse terrain more quickly than on foot, but are not a faster method of travel than flight. In battle, avatars will not suffer damage so long as they are in a vehicle. Most, though not all, vehicles come equipped with turbo that can be summoned for a short burst of speed at the expsense of control.
Vehicles can be a powerful force on the battlefield. Bigger vehicles are not easily moved, and can absorb a great deal of damage before exploding. It should be noted that most cars cannot be healed, and that any damage dealt to a vehicle is likely permanent.
During the Age of the Titans, a powerful and majestic race of Titans mined the ground for Ormagöden's steel flesh, and found it still retained the desire from speed. From His flesh, they made titanic vehicles that moved so fast, there were no beasts capable of pulling them. Thus, they developed cars with engines capable of pulling themselves. Before ascending to the heavens, they left behind instructions on how to build vehicles, amongst other things.
