Invention of the Automobile The automobile was officially was invented in Germany by Karl Benz and Gotlieb Daimler. The car was called the Mercedes and was the world's first car. Minor Correction Actually, Daimler and Benz started as competitors, and it's hard to say who produced the first car, because this is one of those ideas where parallel evolution (or in this case invention) came into play. There are other inventors who have claims (less strong but true nevertheless) to being the first inventor.

Karl Benz Huhv2 Out.Earlier "self propeled vehicles were crude atempts powered by steam, mainsprings etc. The automobile as we know it is an internal combustion engine powered… vehicle. there were inventors other than Benz working on similar projects Duryea bros. in USA for example. But no one had perfected a source of power. Neither Benz or Diamler invented the internal combustion engine, it was a Frenchman named DeDion. Gasoline had not been invented yet so it ran on cleaning fluid called naptha, spark was created outside the engine using a kerosene flame and "flash tube" Benz and Diamler were familiar with DeDion and were first to receive "pre" production engines. Withen a year a large number of engines were shipped around the world and hundreds of automobile makers appeared. Motorcycles took a similar path with DIamler putting his DeDion engine in a crude two wheeled outrigger wheeled for "shop use" contraption, but it had a seat so he got the patent "motorcycle" It is not known if Verbiest's model was ever built. Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot is widely credited with building the first full-scale, self-propelled mechanical vehicle or automobile in about 1769 It was invented because people would use it as a everyday life cleaning tool
It is unknown whom exactly, invented the automobile. DaVinci had a working model of a spring-powered automobile in the 15th century. Yes, and also the French during the times …of Napoleonic wars (military vehicle). The first, American automobile was invented in Hinsdale, New Hampshire, USA, by George A. Long. This 1875 vehicle is only attested by local newspaper accounts and his, testimony. However, Long was awarded U.S.P.O. patent number: 281,091 on May 10, 1883 (pre-dating Benz) for his second automobile. Long's second and patented version, is residing in the Smithsonian's collection as not only the oldest automobile (Steam Road Vehicle), but the oldest, self-propelled vehicle of any type. The earliest known steam-powered car was finished as early as 1769 by French inventor Nicolas Cugnot. But when it comes to vehicles powered by the internal combustion engine, then Carl Benz is given credit for actually building one. Benz championed the new internal-combustion engines, and he worked single-minded to create a car driven by one. He built a little three-wheeled car in 1885 and sold his first one two years later. He went into production with a four-wheeled model in 1890, and the Mercedes-Benz company is still with us. But Benz wasn't first. The French inventor de Rochas built an auto, and an engine to drive it, in 1862. first propelled road vehicle The first propelled road vehicle was made in 1769 by a french man named Nicolas cugnot. Answer the steam powered car was invented in 1769 by a guy named....... Nicholas Cugnot...SO he made the first car technically. Answer The first automobile was 1894, in the U.S., made by Ransom E. Olds. ( Oldsmobile, R.E.O.) I think the first auto ever invented was a Benz, later to become Mercedes-Benz. I think it was 1893-4. This car only had three, bicycle wheels, one horsepower, one cylinder, and it had a rutter to steer it. this was later improved and giver four wheels by the british.
Nicolas Joseph Cugnot invented a steam powered car in the year of 1769.
The automobile was invented in 1769 by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot, who invented the first self-propelled car.
The automobile was invented for transportation to take you near or far.
So people can have a fast an easy way to get to and from places better now that automobile's have been invented people can get around with out a problem.
Henry ford Henry ford did not make the first cars he perfected the way they where build (asable line) the frist car were made in Europe some where that's all i know
Justin Bieber invented this when he was 3.......
The first country to make an automobile is Europe
changed production, agriculture, travel, way of life, etc.
While there were certainly many prototypes made with an internal combustion engine, this is often credited by historians as being that of Carl Benz which was a three wheeler p…roduced in 1886. While there had been many steam powered vehicles as early as the 1820s, these did not lead to modern automobiles, and so are not considered the ancestors of modern automobiles. In the same year Gottleib Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach produced their first automobile. Daimler and Maybach had both worked for Otto & Cie (now Deutz AG) to develop the first engines for Nikolaus August Otto which were based on work by the French engineer Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir. Lenoir created the first internal combustion engine. It ran on "illuminating gas" for its fuel. In 1863 he created an automobile which is now being restored that ran on a liquid fuel, which was probably Ligroin, which was also used by Daimler and Benz for their first engines and historians are now debating whether to give the credit for the first automobile with an internal combustion engine to Lenoir or to keep it with Carl.
