"Ever since the XP-38 came out, they just aren't in demand."
Luke Skywalker upon selling his X-34 landspeeder to Wioslea[src]

The X-34 was an open-air/sealed cockpit civilian landspeeder manufactured by SoroSuub. One famous owner was Luke Skywalker.

Characteristics

X-34 landspeeder schematics.

Durable if not stylish, the X-34 featured holographic displays, a computer for ground navigation, and a number of repulsor counterbalances for smooth and steady travel over rough terrain. Its maximum altitude was 1 meter (100 cm ) , but its usual cruising altitude was roughly 10 cm above ground level.

The X-34 retailed for roughly 10,550 credits new, 2,500 used. It was light, unarmored, and featured no weapon mounts and was thus unsuitable for military applications, unlike the Seraph-class urban landspeeder or the Rebel combat speeder, also manufactured by SoroSuub.

The open-air landspeeder could be piloted through the use of a steering wheel and foot pedals, and featured a retractable duraplex windscreen.[4]

History

The popularity of the X-34 waned considerably when SoroSuub began manufacture of the XP-38 landspeeder, a similar but sleeker model.

Luke Skywalker bought his X-34 landspeeder at Anchorhead from Jabba the Hutt.[5] He repaired it only a short time before he sold it to Wioslea.[6]

By 137 ABY X-34s were still employed. Imperial Moff Nieve Gromia provided agent Gunn Yage with a 4-seaer version to help her infiltrate Mos Eisley.

Behind the scenes

In The Phantom Menace, a green X-34 is seen in the background on Tatooine. This is the same speeder that was used in the making of A New Hope, only repainted.

Roleplaying game sources claim a top speed of 330 km/h, but the SWCCG card Luke's X-34 Landspeeder and sources like The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia list a top speed of 250 km/h.

Some sources like The Official Star Wars Fact File give the speeder a length of 7.4 meters.[3] This is however too long in comparison to the driver.

In Children of the Jedi it is named a "T-70".

The landspeeder used for filming was based on the Reliant Robin three-wheeler, a British car usually driven by the elderly.

Hasbro incorrectly called it the XP-34 landspeeder for their Star Wars Die-Cast TITANIUM SERIES.
