The {car|automobile|vehicle}, automobile, {motor car or autocar|autocar or motor car} usually has {four-wheels|four wheels} and is {a vehicle|a car} {that|which} uses {its own|a} motor engine system to transport passengers over purposely built roads.

In 1769 {Nicolas-Joseph|Nicolas Joseph} Cugnot of France arguably invented the first {full-scale|full scale}, self propelled mechanical vehicle {or|or perhaps|or even} automobile. It was {a steam-powered|a steam powered} tricycle.

In 1807 Nicephore Niepce and his brother Claude are {believed|thought} to have built the world’s first internal combustion engine. They called it a Pyreolophore. {However|Nevertheless|Nonetheless|But}, they {chose to|decided to} install it in a boat not {a car|an automobile|a vehicle}. That {same|very same} year a Swiss inventor François Isaac de Rivaz finished {his own|his} internal combustion engine {and|and then} used it to {create|produce|generate|develop} the world’s first internal combustion engine vehicle.

The Benz {Patent-Motorwagen|Patent Motorwagen} is {believed|thought|considered} to be {the first|the very first|the 1st} modern automobile. It was built in 1886 by German inventor Carl Benz.

In August 1888, Carl Benz’s wife, Bertha Benz, became {the first|the very first|the original} person to {drive|get} {a car|an automobile|a vehicle} over {a long|much|a great deal of} distance. Without telling {her husband|the husband of her} she drove one of their Benz {Patent-Motorwagens|Patent Motorwagens} along with her {two|2} eldest sons from a town called Mannheim in southern Germany to Pforzheim. Automobile trips before this were usually short drives, she {wanted|needed|was looking} to prove the automobile {they had|they’d} {invented|created} was a useful contraption, {that the|which the} general public {could|might|could very well} {use|make use of}.

Bertha Benz’s road trip was a pioneering drive {and|as well as} {a key|a major|a significant} event in the {technical|complex} development of the {car|automobile|vehicle}. Covering {106|hundred six} km ({66|sixty six} miles) {each|every|each and every} way she did the round trip in {two|2} days, solving {numerous|many} {problems|issues} on the way. When the brakes needed repairing she invented brake lining. She used a hatpin to clean a blocked fuel pipe and insulated a wire with a garter. She located fuel at the city pharmacy in Wiesloch (hailed as {the first|the very first|the earliest} {fuel|gasoline} station in the world) {and|and also|as well as} on {her return home|the return home of her} made other suggestions, {such as the|like the} need of {another|an additional} gear for climbing hills.

In 1892, Rudolf Diesel a German engineer invented a “New Rational Combustion Engine” which lead him to building the {first|very first} Diesel Engine in 1897.

As automobiles {became|started to be} {more popular|very popular} a need arose to manufacture affordable {cars|automobiles|vehicles} on {a large-scale|a large scale} basis. Ransom Olds in 1902, debuted {a production-line|a production line} manufacturing system at his Oldsmobile factory in Michigan, USA. Abu Dhabi Rafeeg

Henry Ford’s Model T {car|automobile|vehicle}, introduced in 1908, {is often|is usually|is frequently} {regarded|viewed|seen} as {the most|most} {famous|popular} {of all|of all the|of the} {early|first|original} automobiles. It was the {first|very first} {car|automobile|vehicle} to become publically affordable, especially after Ford massively improved the {production-line|production line} manufacturing system.

In 1914, Ford created {a production-line|a production line} system that focused on {synchronization, precision, and specialization|specialization, precision, and synchronization}. Ford’s {cars|automobiles|vehicles} came off the line {much faster|faster|way quicker} {than|compared to} previous methods (from 12.5 {man-hours|man hours} down {to just|to} 1.5), which increased productivity yet used less manpower. By assigning each worker a specified area {rather than|instead of|as opposed to} allowing them to roam about, injuries were {dramatically|drastically|significantly} reduced.

Ford could afford to pay workers {more|a lot more} as the number of workers needed decreased. Combined with the {high|higher} efficiency output a term called “Fordism” was surmised. It lead to {most|many} major manufacturing industries adopting the method for {various|different} products which contributed to the economic rise of the United States.

{Today|These days}, {various|different} body styles for the {car|automobile|vehicle} exist {such as|for example|for instance} {the sedan/saloon, hatchback, station wagon/estate and van|van, station wagon/estate, hatchback, and the sedan/saloon}.

In 2010 it was {estimated|believed} that there {were|have been} {over|more than} {1|one} billion vehicles in the world, up from {half|50 %} a billion in 1986. The {number|amount} of {cars|automobiles|vehicles} on the {road|street|highway} {continues|goes on} to increase rapidly year on year {especially in|particularly in} developing countries {such as|like} {India and China|China and India}.

Petrol (gasoline) and diesel {are still|continue to be|remain} used to fuel the internal combustion engine today. {However|Nevertheless|Nonetheless|But}, both of these fuels cause air pollution and {contribute|add} to climate change. With rapidly increasing oil prices and {concerns|issues} about the {environmental|ecological} impacts {there is|there’s} {a lot of|a great deal of} work underway to {produce|create} viable future alternative power systems for {cars|automobiles|vehicles}. Hybrid vehicles, {plug-in|plug in} electric vehicles, hydrogen vehicles and vehicles using alternative {fuels|energy sources} such as natural gas are {gaining popularity|becoming more popular|becoming popular}.

{Fully|Completely} autonomous vehicles (driverless {cars|automobiles|vehicles}) currently exist in prototype (Google has developed a driverless {car|automobile|vehicle}). These {cars|automobiles|vehicles} are expected to be available commercially around the year 2020. Autonomous {cars|automobiles|vehicles} could {help to|make it possible to|easily} {reduce the|lessen the|decrease the} {amount|quantity|level} of vehicles needed on the {road|street|highway} and dramatically increase safety.
