The Chao Pod is a vehicle that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is the racing car for the Chao that is styled after a Neutral Chao's appearance. Unlike other cars, the Chao Pod has four seats and is operated by four Chao at a time.
The default Chao Pod is mostly light blue at the upper half and dark blue at the lower half. The wheels are blue and covered with yellow guards. It has a large glass dome containing three orange sets which the Neutral, Hero and Dark Chao sit in to drive. Behind the dome is a yellow seat which Omochao sits to communicate with the other Chao. Lastly, it features two yellow circle-shaped headlights.
Like other cars in Team Sonic Racing, its appearance can be customized with different paint jobs, performance parts and decals. Its horn can also be changed.
