An automobile, also known as a passenger car, is a road vehicle with four
wheels and a motor. The invention of steam-powered road vehicles
during the late 18th century led to a whole new way of traveling.
Late in the 19th century, inventors in Europe and America developed
"horseless carriages," powered by internal combustion engines.
Early cars were expensive and primitive, but they gave people freedom
to travel more widely without the need to care for horses.
Cars were especially helpful in the cities where it was difficult to
maintain a barn or carriage house, and they relieved the need to base
travel plans on train and trolley schedules. Over the years, after
Henry Ford and others applied mass-production techniques to automobiles,
gasoline-powered cars became widely available and their prices came down
so that, today, most people in the United States drive some type of road
vehicle. Automobiles now run with computerized efficiency, and many
of them feature GPS devices that direct drivers to their destinations.
Every year, automobile manufacturers showcase new features, styles, and
colors on their vehicle lineups. Ranging from small sedans to large
SUVs and pick-up trucks, motor vehicles are available for every consumer
taste. And automotive companies continually strive to make their
products safer and more
fuel efficient. With the
high cost of fuel and clean environment laws, the challenges are greater
