The automobile as we know it was not invented in a day by a single inventor. The history of the reflects an evolution that place worldwide. It is estimated over 100,000 patents the modern automobile.

However, we can to the many firsts that along the way. Starting the first theoretical plans for a vehicle that had been up by both Leonardo da Vinci and Newton .

In 1769, the very self-propelled road vehicle was a tractor invented by French and mechanic, Nicolas Joseph (1725 — 1804). used a steam engine to his vehicle, built under his at the Paris Arsenal by mechanic It was used by the French Army to artillery at a whopping speed of 2 1/2 mph on three wheels. The vehicle had to every ten to fifteen minutes to up steam power.

The steam engine and boiler separate from the rest of the and placed in the front (see above). The following year Cugnot built a steam-powered that carried four

In 1771, Cugnot drove one of his vehicles into a stone making Cugnot the first to get into a motor vehicle This was the beginning of bad luck for the After one of Cugnot’s patrons and the other was exiled, the money for road vehicle experiments

Steam engines powered by burning fuel that water in a boiler, creating that expanded and pushed that turned the crankshaft, then turned the wheels. the early history of self-propelled — both road and vehicles were being with steam engines. also designed two steam with engines that worked well.) Steam added so much weight to a that they proved a design for road vehicles; steam engines were successfully used in locomotives. who accept that early road vehicles were feel that Nicolas was the inventor of the first automobile .

After Cugnot Several Inventors Designed Steam-Powered Vehicles

Cugnot’s vehicle was by Frenchman, Onesiphore Pecqueur, who invented the first differential

In 1789, the first U.S. for a steam-powered land vehicle was to Oliver Evans .

In 1801, Trevithick built a road powered by steam — the in Great Britain.

In Britain, 1820 to 1840, steam-powered were in regular service. were later banned public roads and Britain’s system developed as a result.

road tractors (built by Deitz) pulled passenger around Paris and Bordeaux up to

In the United States, numerous coaches were built 1860 to 1880. Inventors Harrison Dyer, Joseph Rufus Porter, and William T.

Amedee Bollee Sr. built steam cars from to 1883. The La Mancelle built in had a front-mounted engine, shaft to the differential, chain drive to the wheels, steering wheel on a shaft and driver’s seat the engine. The boiler was carried the passenger compartment.

Brilliance Electric Cars

In 1871, Dr. J. W. professor of physics at Wisconsin University, and the J. I. Case Company a working steam car that won a race.

Early Electric

Steam engines were not the engines used in early Vehicles with electrical were also invented. 1832 and 1839 (the year is uncertain), Robert of Scotland invented the first carriage. E lectric cars rechargeable batteries that a small electric motor.

The vehicles were heavy, expensive, and needed to stop for frequently. Both steam and road vehicles were in favor of gas-powered vehicles. found greater success in and streetcars. where a constant of electricity was possible.
