Mad City Spawn Vehicle Icon

Spawn Vehicle Icon on the Phone

Vehicles are a mode of transportation used to traverse an area. They can be spawned using the Phone by clicking the Spawn button and selecting the vehicle. Vehicles must be owned to be spawned in.

Vehicles are categorized into three types; land vehicles, water vehicles and air vehicles. The Camaro, Boat, and Helicopter are all free, although the latter cannot be spawned with the phone. Vehicles cannot be spawned in certain areas such as the Prison. When they are spawned they will have the default customization options, namely a white skin, default rim, etc, unless it has been edited in a Garage, after which it will be customized with whatever was chosen at that time.

Players can enter and drive vehicles by going to the driver's seat and pressing "E". Similarly, players can ride vehicles as a passenger by pressing "E" near a passenger seat. Most unowned vehicles can be purchased by attempting to drive the vehicle, in which a prompt will appear with the option to purchase it.

Vehicles that are bought or obtained are permanently added onto the player's phone. There are currently 66 different vehicles, consisting of which 52 land vehicles, 3 water vehicles and 11 aerial vehicles. Once vehicles are purchased, they may be "favorited" by clicking the star next to the vehicle in the "Spawn" menu on the phone, in which they will appear at the top of the spawn list.

Garages and the Mobile Customization game pass can be used to customize vehicles with owned skins and upgrades. Boats, aerial vehicles, and certain land vehicles cannot be upgraded and can only be customized by changing cosmetics.

As of the February 1st, 2020 update, almost all land vehicles will gradually regenerate nitro without the need of going to a gas station. Vehicles that regenerate nitro will automatically have maximum nitro when spawned via the Phone.

      • However, the SWAT's tires can be popped with the use of Police Spikes, while the Rhino and O66-Terminator's cannot.
