A space buggy was a transportation vehicle, used by the Interplanetary Mining Corporation while prospecting worlds.
On Uxarieus, Caldwell smuggled Jo Grant away from his IMC colleges by hiding her under a tarpaulin in the back of a space buggy. While the Third Doctor and the Master travelled to the ancient city of the Uxarieans in a second buggy, some of the Uxarieans used a boulder to destroy the vehicle, upturning it as they did so.
