Automobiles, also known as cars, are motor vehicles that use an internal combustion engine, mostly fueled by gasoline (petrol) but sometimes by electric or other sources. They are primarily used to transport people and can carry a small amount of cargo. Modern automobiles are largely manufactured by large multinational car companies, although they were first invented and perfected in the late 19th century. Many of the innovations in automobile history occurred in Germany and France, though it was American businessman and engineer Henry Ford who introduced mass-production techniques to make automobiles affordable for middle-class families.


One of the main benefits of having a car is that it saves you time on your commute to work or school, trips to the supermarket or visiting friends and family. With so much of our lives centered around being on the go, it’s no wonder that having a reliable vehicle can make your life so much easier. In addition, having a car makes it possible to go on road trips or travel with family and friends whenever you want, rather than being dependent on public transportation schedules.
