History of the car


And of course, you now ask, when did the first car appear? It all depends on whether we consider a moving vehicle with or without a driver to be a car. If a car can be without a driver, then the first car in the world is the steam cart of Ferdinand Verbiest, and if the car still has to be with a driver, then the Cugnot Small Cart.
