Cars in Cyberpunk 2077
Failing is not an option. Before entering into the subject, I’m not going to repeat the full speech, but you can still enter into the contest to win a Cyberpunk set-valued in more than $500, which includes a copy of Cyberpunk Red signed by Mike Pondsmith link in the description with the information.
And, also, take a look at the book The World of Cyberpunk 2077 edited by Dark Horse, it has some very interesting lore, although no spoilers, and I showed some snippets in a stream the other day, you’ll find a link in the description to see what this book is about in case you’re hesitating if this book is for you or not.
A lot of the information showed here comes from this book, so if you want to expand on the specifics of cars, and cyberwar, and technology, and a lot more things, you’ll find it in The World of Cyberpunk 2077. Now let’s go to cars. History, history is important.
In the late 80s, due to overspending policies, fuel shortage was a great problem, fossil fuels were a limited resource and no one bothered to find alternatives, so this resource was running low very fast.
In the early 90s, an up-and-coming Italian biotechnology company called Biotechnica found the solution: a genetically modified wheat that, thanks to a patented refining system, could create a fuel called CHOOH2 which not only was limitless to create, it burned way cleaner than gasoline and diesel.
Although it’s really toxic, that’s the fun of having drinks with CHOOH2, like the 20s version of the Johnny Silverhand cocktail CHOOH2 in 2077. (Cyberpunk 2077 Car)
(Cyberpunk 2077 Car) . Biotechnica came with the invention but they were a small company and they couldn’t grow the wheat by themselves, so they sold the exclusive license to the energy giant Petrochem, who back then wasn’t an energy giant anymore because they were in a crisis for the fuel shortages, but when CHOOH2 became the standard fuel for ground vehicles the success of the fuel catapultedBiotechnica and Petrochem. Later this license would be also sold to other14 energy corporations, the eternal rival of Petrochem, SovOil, amongst them. And they lived happily ever after until the4th Corporate War erupted. During the 4th Corporate War, there was a problem with fuel shortages, as ground vehicles used CHOOH2, but air vehicles were fueled by a more complex to manufacture a version of it or with gasoline, and the only 2 remaining providers of petroleum derivates left were the American Petrochem and the NeoSoviet SovOil.

These competing megacorps started to fight for the resources of their competition to be able to provide as much as possible during the war, and started to strike hard the resources of the competition, including attacking the lands where the wheat for the CHOOH2 was grown with a bioengineered virus, this corporate war between Petrochem and SovOil inside the 4th Corporate War kept escalating until turning into what is called the AvGas War. So, when the 4th ended, you had another thing to add to the destruction, as a worldwide war, the destruction of the net, and orbital strikes weren’t enough. Now you need to add the destruction of CHOOH2 crops with a bioengineered virus and much of the petroleum reserves left on the planet squeezed dry by the war effort, and Petrochem and SolvOil destroying refinery infrastructure of their competition. And this caused a fuel crisis. (Cyberpunk 2077 Car)
After the 4th, in the Time of the Red, fuel shortages stroke the vehicle industry hard, to a point in some parts of the world AVs were almost completely absent from the skies for almost twenty years. But, obviously, the most brilliant minds of the world weren’t going to quietly wait for a fix and soon researches to create solutions started, and resulted in the invention of numerous unique hybrid systems. Various bio fueled, hydrogen-operated, and electric motors were researched in this period, but none proved to be an ultimate substitution. Not to mention fossil-based fuels also made a comeback in some parts of the world as they became profitable again because they seemed to forget about climate change. In 2041 there were two major breakthroughs: in Europe self-powering electric car engines were created, and in America, Biotechnica came with a new strain of their magical wheat that was immune to plagues, so vehicle production started to resume, and new models of cars and AVs were created, although AVs are still only for rich people and the transportation of goods.

And in Cyberpunk 2077 are not drivable by the player, I’m afraid. We will only be able to drive ground vehicles. Now let’s get to see the cars, shall we? If anybody that knows me in real life would see me hyped for cars they would take my temperature. First of all, let’s talk about the missing feature of car customization. As you know, in Cyberpunk 2077 cars won’t customizable but we will be able to find customized versions of different models of cars. Apparently, the problem with customizable cars is a technical one, because apparently certain Polish developing studio went a little carried away with the number of different models of cars that are going to appear in the game, and as cars are not a copypaste of each other but they all have their unique design, this means that every single mesh of each car is completely different, they didn’t take a 3D mesh, change the textures of it a little and, voilà, you get a new car, no, each car is unique.
And as there are zillions of different models, because what I’m going to show here is only a very small portion of the thing, creating customization pieces is a titanic task, which solution would be having less different cars in the game, but to be completely honest, I rather more designs and no customization than customization and a copypaste of designs, but that’s a personal preference, becausestyle over substance. Now let’s talk about the manufacturers. The American company Quadra, you know yourQuadra, specialized in muscle vehicles, like the type-66 or the most iconic Turbo R, created as a response to Japanese sports car manufacturers. Their V8 engine became a star instantly inthe mid-50s, and for those of you who don’t know the V8 is a reference to Mad Max, as the Pursuit Special car that Mad Max drives were also a high-performance coupe. Hence the short video on the modified Quadra Type 66 that CD Projekt Red Tweeted on Mad Max’s anniversary. (Cyberpunk 2077 Car)
The Chinese manufacturer Archer is known for its midclass passenger cars, most of which were first released between 2020 and 2050. These cars are on the mid-tier, more or less like a Quadra. Do you want a car? This is how you get a car. But let’s say you want something more stylish. Then the Spanish luxury brand Herrera, who produces glamorous autos with record-setting performance and unparalleled comfort is your choice. Or a top-tier luxury car from Great Britain’s Rayfield which, along with Herrera, are known for their superb quality sports cars and custom-made luxury limousines. If you’re in for an affordable option that may be more comfortable in the blocked Night City traffic, a Yaiba motorbike may be your choice. Yaiba specializes in sport models that are named after legendary weapons from Japanese mythology, and are especially popular among street-racing biker gangs like the Tyger Claws. These bikes are more practical for longer trips between cities since they perform better on the poorly maintained county highways and interstate roads.
But, BUT. If you’re in for a thrill and have what it takes to steal military vehicles, some Nomads did, why don’t you? Then Militech and Arasaka are the leader manufacturers, if you get to steal one of those you most probably don’t want to be seen around using it. And with this and a bizcocho, this is the story of cars in the Cyberpunk universe and a small sample of the cars that we’re going to find in Cyberpunk 2077, hope you like them. I do. And I don’t even like cars.
