Vehicles are non-living means for transportation (see Transport). They are most often man-made (cars, locomotives, ships), but also non-man-made means for transportations can be called vehicles, including icebergs and floating tree trunks. Animals, though used as means for transportation, are not called vehicles.


The term "vehicle" is also sometimes used as an English translation of the term "yana" used to describe the major divisions of Buddhism: Theravada, Mahayana, and Tibetan Vajrayana or Tantrayana.
