Hot Wheels: AcceleRacers is an animated series of four films by Mattel. It is computer-animated, produced by Mainframe Entertainment out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, which also produced ReBoot and distributed by Warner Bros. Available on DVD and VHS, it has also been shown on Cartoon Network.

The series takes Mattel's Hot Wheels toy cars and puts them in a ReBoot-like situation, with racing somewhat reminiscent of Tron. This is a sequel to the 2003 animated film Hot Wheels: World Race and takes place in California. A soundtrack was distributed by Sony BMG, and toys were sold in stores and given away in a McDonald's Happy Meal. A collectible card game and other merchandise were also made.
