1672 Ferdinand Verbiest invented the first car in the year 1672.

It was the first ever car invented and was powered by steam.

Ferdinand was an experimentalist and a missionary to China. He

built his car in China.

1769

The very first self-powered road vehicles were powered by steam

engines and by that definition Nicolas Joseph Cugnot of France

built the first automobile in 1769.

1806 Francois Isaac Rivaz, a Swiss inventor, designed and

invented the first ever car with an internal combustion engine.

This car engine was fueled with a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen.

This car was made in 1806. However, this design was not a

success.

1881 In 1881, Gustave Trouve designed and invented the first

ever car powered by electricity.

1885 Four years later in 1885, Karl Benz designed and built a

car powered by gasoline. This car was made in Germany. This was the

first ever car to be granted a patent in 1886. The rest is history

and the world acknowledged Karl Benz as the "Inventor of the modern

automobile".

A: The car was not invented by one single person, it evolved

gradually over Centuries as a result of experiments and research

done by many different designers and engineers. Leonardo da Vinci

designed cars that were powered by pedals, pulley or clockwork, and

the first internal combustion engines first appeared in the 17th

Century and used gunpowder as fuel! Steam-powered road vehicles

began appearing in the late 18th Century- one of the most famous is

the three-wheeled steam tractor developed by the French engineer

Nicholas-Joseph Cugnot, which first appeared in 1769 and remains

preserved to this day in a museum in Paris. Steam-powered road

coaches were in use across Britain and Europe by the end of the

Georgian era, with regular passenger services running in and around

the major cities.

Petrol-engined cars were being experimented with throughout the

19th Century, with various one-off machines appearing from time to

time, but the first known really successful one was launched by

Daimler in 1875. The first production-model car appeared on the

market ten years later, which was the Benz 3-wheeler (basically a

huge tricycle with a single-cylinder engine and belt drive). By the

1890s, several car companies had sprung up across Britain and

Europe, and the first American-built car (a Ford) appeared in

1896.

1672 by Ferdinand Verbiest

The invention of the first practical automobile is credited to

Karl Benz of Germany. He invented the Benz Patent Motorwagen in

1885.

In France in 1769, Nicolas Cugnot built a steam-powered

wagon.

Robert Anderson made an electric carriage in Scotland in

1832.

Karl Benz created the first true automobile with an internal

combustion engine in 1885 in Germany .

Frank and Charles Duryea established the first American car

manufacturing company in 1893.

Henry Ford marketed the Quadricycle in 1896, 11 years before

forming Ford Motor Company.

Oldsmobile was founded in 1897.

Karl Benz generally is acknowledged as the inventor of the

modern automobile. In 1879, Benz was granted a patent for his first

engine, which had been designed in 1878. His first Motorwagen was

built in 1885 in Mannheim, Germany. He was awarded the patent for

its invention as of his application on 29 January 1886.

it was around in 1885

The first version of a car was introduced in 1769 when the steam

engined automobiles were invented. The first car with that was

petro-fueled was introduced in 1885.

The answer depends on what you define as a car, but most people

agree that it was in 1885 when Karl Benz built and patented his

Motorwagen.

455555555555555555555555555555BC - A steam powered wheeled

vehicle was built as a toy.

1752 - A pedal powered horse carriage was built.

1801 - A steam powered locomotive was built (it could only go a

short distance).

1881 - An electric three wheeled vehicle was built.

1885 - A combustion engine powered three wheeled vehicle was

built.

In 1769, the very first self-propelled road vehicle was a

military tractor invented by French engineer and mechanic, Nicolas

Joseph Cugnot (1725 - 1804). Cugnot used a steam engine to power

his vehicle, built under his instructions at the Paris Arsenal by

mechanic Brezin. It was used by the French Army to haul artillery

at a whopping speed of 2 1/2 mph on only three wheels. The vehicle

had to stop every ten to fifteen minutes to build up steam power.

The steam engine and boiler were separate from the rest of the

vehicle and placed in the front. The following year (1770), Cugnot

built a steam-powered tricycle that carried four passengers.

. The first production car was the Benz Motorwagen

A: There is some evidence that the ancient Romans had a design

for a car very similar to today's vehicles, however they lacked

internal combustion technology.

the internal combustion engine was invented in 1806, but the first

automobile was invented by Karl Benz in 1885. Henry Ford took the

idea of an assembly line and applied it to automobile manufacturing

leading to the production of cheaper automobiles in 1902.

automobiles become hugely poplar when Ford launched the Model-T in

1908 .

The very first production car was the " Benz Velo " built by Carl

Benz

in 1894.

The worlds first practical automobile was invented and built by

Karl Benz in Germany 1886. It was a 3 wheeled single cylinder

powered vehicle he called the Benz Patent-Motorwagen.
