For thousands of years people have been trying to find ways to facilitate movement. As the days go by people are coming up with more efficient and efficient ways to travel. And automobiles have made a dramatic difference in people’s travels. Although Carl Benz, the inventor of the automobile, is said to have contributed to the discovery, many others have contributed to the discovery. No one has contributed much.
No one has achieved the level of skill required to build a motor vehicle in a single day. To acquire these skills, people have to do research day after day, have to work tirelessly. Let’s take a brief look at the history of car discovery,
The evolution of automobiles over the ages
The age of steam cars
According to most historians, Nicolas Joseph Cognat of France was the first to actually build a car. Kugnut’s car was large, heavy, and three-wheeled and steam-powered. In 1769 he was told to travel 2.25 km per hour in twenty minutes with four passengers, and to return to his former place in twenty minutes. He was skilled at firing cannons so he knew how to attach a hard or soft piston to an engine with a drill.
A model was later placed at the Conservatory National des Arts and Materials in Paris to see exactly what Kugnut’s car looked like.
Later the use of these cars can be noticed in England. These vehicles were used in France from 1790 to 1800.
The other inventors were not sitting still. They were also doing their job. In 1803 they built a steam-powered vehicle which became very popular. James Watt, William Murdoch, Cornwall worked on steam-powered engines. Watt, meanwhile, was the opposite of making steam-powered cars. He thought these cars were too heavy to carry on the road.
Richard Thravithik later completed Murdoch’s work. Sir Goldworth was the first to successfully build a steam-powered car.
The first steam-powered car in Britain was successfully operated in 1803. Its route was from London to Cambridge.
In the twentieth century, light steam vehicles were invented in the United States, France, and Denmark in the wake of the Cognat’s car being so heavy.
Electric motor vehicle
At the beginning of the twentieth century, 40 percent of cars in America were steam powered, 38 percent were electric, and 22 percent were gasoline powered. Gasoline-powered cars used to have more noise and more shaking, which reduced the demand for these cars. At that time, electric cars were attractive to look at, less noise and easily controllable.
Electric cars lose popularity only because of the faulty charging structure of the battery. Later, however, this electric vehicle was used only for emergency purposes.
Development of gasoline powered vehicles
According to most authorities, Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler played a key role in the development of gasoline-powered vehicles. Surprised to hear that, Daimler never saw the car with his own eyes but made a car for himself.
According to Marcus’s idea, a spark is created by combining gasoline and air. But the test was very scary. His first invention was a two-wheeled handcart. Marcus’s second discovery was that he could walk 5 km per hour, suitable for street exhibitions in Vietnam.
A car show was held in Australia in 1898 where Marcus was much admired, but he refused to work on a car project called “Senseless Waste of Time and Effort”.
Revolution in Ford and the automotive industry
Before the discovery of the Model T in 1908, Ford invented eight more models. They were A, B, C, F, K, N, R, S. However, the rest are not so well-known because people think that cheap cars are more useful. According to the needs of the people, Ford’s luxury car was made cheap and universal and easy to control.
Made in Britain in 1920, Austin, Maurice and Singer in England. Fiat in Italy, Citroen in France. After World War I, America became successful in the car business. 1920-1930 was an important period for the development of automotive technology. During this time four wheeled brakes, arbitrary adjustment of suspension, radio, heater etc. were invented and attached to the vehicle for the convenience of the driver. Ford’s famous v-8 car in 1932 attracted the attention of all with its outstanding performance. Ford’s Model T was the most commercially successful car.
The era of the classic car
1925-1935 was the time when we were working on enhancing the external beauty of the car but during this time many small size cars were made and also the work of making different big cars was done.
The year 1925-1945 is called the ‘Classic Age’ of cars. Rolls-Royce is the first car company to be named at this time. The body of this car was like limousine and big sedan car but relatively light and its founder was Bentley Motors Limited.
More cars like this were made at that time. Hispano-Suiza of Spain and France; Bugatti, Dileg, Delahaya, Hotchkiss, Talbot, France; Dusenberg, Cadillac, Packard and Pierce-Arrow in America; Maybach and Mercedes Benz from Germany.
The Bugatti was one of the most expensive sports cars in Italy at the time. The car industry in the US suffered some losses due to some stock market problems but the big three car companies made up for their losses by exporting abroad. The Big Three companies are General Motors, Ford and Chrysler.
Cars in Europe after the war
After the Second World War in 1946, Italian car design was influenced. Car design in Italy began to be greatly reduced.
Demand for this specialty has grown significantly as a result of recent corporate scandals.
In 1950, Adolf Hitler proposed the invention of the People’s Car. The car was a Volkswagen brand. But much cheaper and more readily available.
Then American engineers started various kinds of research. They do research on front wheels, fuel injection, disc breakers, rear engines, conversions, and more. The most important discovery then was how small cars could accommodate more people.
V-8 and chrome in America
The 1910 car race was one of the most memorable events in American history. At that time Ford was the most successful business. At that time people were in great demand for this v-8 car.
In 1930 cars were made more attractive. Different colors and metals were used to increase the brightness of the car body. The Cadillac car was famous for its long tail-like design.
America’s compact car
The demand for small cars was high in America from 1940-1960. After the success of Volkswagen, many smaller cars were released by the Americans. But the demand for these expensive compact cars increased in the mid-1960’s, commonly known as the ‘Pony Car’.
Toyota launched a four-passenger car in 1977. The car had a small gasoline engine and an electric motor that could control the car together. The advantage of this car is that it can run up to 35 miles with gasoline engine even after running out of electric battery.
Demand for this specialty has grown significantly as a result of recent corporate scandals involving Chevrolet and Sierra. Toyota Prius discovers electric-gasoline hybrid car.
The present and future of automobiles
The novelty of these cars is that they are environmentally friendly and fast and these cars are also helping to reduce the extra cost of people. Some of these cars are self-driving cars that have attracted a lot of buyers. Many companies now believe that electric cars will survive in the future and that they need to establish themselves in the market as soon as possible. Porsche, Mercedes, Tesla and other companies are working hard to bring these electric cars to market quickly and at relatively affordable prices.
Surprising to hear, it is true that people are still thinking about the future of cars.
Maybe in the future all cars will be able to fly in the sky or maybe every person will have a personal jetpack through which people will be able to fly from one place to another easily, he will not have to get stuck in traffic, he will not waste valuable time on the road.
Without car, human life is unthinkable now. Automobiles have always played and will continue to play an important role in a large part of our economic development. This change would never have been possible without the radical change that automobiles have brought in every aspect of society. And it helps to keep the vehicle under complete control for various daily activities and as a means of communication.
