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