These terrains can sometimes only be traveled by vehicles designed specifically for off-road driving (such as heavy-duty trucks and equipment, SUVs, ATVs, snowmobiles, motorcycles, mountain bicycles) or vehicles that have extra ground clearance, sturdy tires, and in some cases, front and rear locking differential. Examples of vehicle manufacturers notable for producing types of off-road vehicle (ORV) include AM General, Land Rover,and Jeep, although most vehicle manufacturers have some sort of off-road vehicle in their current range. These are usually rather expensive cars, but there are exceptions, like the Citroën 2CV, which is actually a budget car (for farmers). Trucks are often fitted with these extras by default. Furthermore, the military usually design their vehicles with off-roading in mind, such as a Jeep or HMMWV, or buy them from off-road manufacturers, such as Land Rover, which has produced cars for the armed forces of many countries.
The Citroën 2CV (French: deux chevaux vapeur, literally "two steam horses", from the tax horsepower rating) was an economy car produced by the French automaker Citroën from 1949 to 1990. It was technologically advanced and innovative, but with extremely utilitarian and deceptively simple Bauhaus inspired bodywork, that belied the sheer quality of its underlying engineering. It was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts. It is considered one of Citroën's most iconic cars. In 1953 'Autocar' in a technical review of the car wrote of, "...the extraordinary ingenuity of this design, which is undoubtedly the most original since the Model T Ford." It was described in the book Drive On!: A Social History of the Motor Car by longtime CAR magazine columnist the late LJK Setright as "the most intelligent application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car."

A wasted spark is when in an ignition system in a four-stroke cycle internal combustion engine spark plugs fire in pairs, on both the exhaust and compression strokes. The extra spark on the exhaust stroke has no effect and is thus "wasted". This design is simpler than a conventional ignition system, but the extra sparks reduce the lifespan of components (contact breaker, spark plugs).Examples of engines using this design include the Buick V6 engine Series I and newer, Harley Davidson V-Twin, air-cooled BMW Motorcycles, Citroën 2CV, Mazda B engine, Chrysler V10, PSA TU Engines, Volkswagen Mark 3 2.8 VR6 (other than 2.0 ), Saturn Corporation 4 cylinders, and Chrysler Neon engines. Some Ford engines also do. Many Honda and Kawasaki motorcycle and PWC engines also follow a similar design, to allow for a smaller number of more powerful coils to replace a larger number of smaller coils in the same limited space.
