Although it says that cloud cars are atmospheric vehicles, can they be flown in space, even as a poor performing space fighter. This might echo of the TIE striker as it was a poor star fighter, but it was also a good atmospheric fighter.

They're described in their official Databank article as atmospheric craft.

These brick-colored atmospheric vehicles keep the peace in the skies of Bespin. Cloud cars feature twin “pods” connected by a repulsorlift engine

There's no mention of their capacity to go into outer space.


The Star Wars: Official Fact File article on Cloud Cars is even more explicit. These craft are intended for in-atmosphere use only. They lack the basic capacity for the occupants to survive in free space for any longer than their air will last, let alone maneuver once they get there.
