Hello. I have long wanted to write something interesting about cars, and finally decided. I will try to briefly and clearly, without delving into small details, to talk about the history and origin of the car, about the first cars, about the inventors of the first cars and about various brands of cars with their history. But do you know what a car really is and where did this word come from?
The word automobile - short car - comes from the words of the ancient Greek αὐτός - itself, and the Latin mobilis - moving, fast. It means a self-propelled and fast road vehicle with or without a driver. Briefly and clearly :)
So let's start with the history of the car.
P.S. I am not a polyglot, and therefore most likely there will be many errors in the texts. I just translate the text with Google Translate and then correct what I can and know. So please write in the comments if there are errors. Also write if you liked the article, rate it or if you want to add something or even want to write something interesting and publish it on the site. Any suggestions are welcome.
Ferdinand Verbiest a member of the Jesuit community in China, in 1672 he built the first car as a toy for the emperor of China. It was a steam cart without a driver that could run on one refueling of coal for more than an hour. And it is the car built by Ferdinand Verbiest that is considered the beginning of the history of the car.
