Who invented the car?
First let's find out what a car is. In translation from Greek, "autos" - himself and "mobilis" - mobile. In European languages, the word "auto-mobile" was used, which translated into Russian meant "mobile." Now let's see who invented the car, who should be thanked for this irreplaceable miracle!
The first cars:
Who invented the first car? The earliest drawings of the car, or rather the self-propelled device belong to the notorious Leonardo da Vinci. In 1490 he designed a trolley with a spring-loaded engine. But like many other Da Vinci developments, the car went unnoticed. The next person who decided to create a self-propelled wagon was the Frenchman Joseph Cunho. In 1770 he built a three-wheeled crew with a steam engine to transport artillery guns. This invention is considered the "grandfather" of all cars, as well as locomotives. But like the invention of Leonardo Da Vinci, the steam engine of Joseph Kunyu was not widely used. After 19 years, the American inventor Oliver Evans invented a four-wheeled crew that weighed about 19 tons, and after another 2 years the Russian scientist Ivan Kulibin built a wagon that was powered by a flywheel. In order for the car to go, the driver needed to untwist a flywheel, which highlighted the invention of our compatriot from the inventions of other scientists, this is that this vehicle already had a brake, rolling bearings and a box of speeds.
Who first invented a car running on gasoline
The world's first gasoline engine appeared in1883, it was invented by Gottlieb Daimler. But who first invented the car? A few years later the inventor Karl Benz was the first in the world to build a three-wheeled car that was equipped with a gasoline engine. It was Karl Benz who fulfilled all 4 conditions that would become a full owner of the title "creator of the world's first car." Here are the 4 conditions:
- Development of car design.
- Patent registration.
- Build a sample and test it in public.
- Organization of production.
Thanks to all these conditions Benz officiallyis considered the inventor of the car, however Gottlieb Daimler was the first to invent a gasoline engine. But this did not stop the two inventors from creating a joint company and producing cars that were named after the daughter of Daimler-Mercedes.
