Car is called each passenger vehicle that has wheels and integrated engine. According to the most common definitions, cars are designed to move (mostly) on motorways, to include seats for one up to six persons, to usually have four wheels and to be manufactured primarily for transporting people and not goods. The term car, however, is used to cover all the other forms of vehicles such as the twin cabin cars, the trucks, the buses and so on.
The modern car, with gasoline internal combustion engine (that was built by Nicholaus Otto), was launched in Germany, in 1885, by Karl Benz. Benz submitted plans for his patent of this car, in January 1886, in the town of Mannheim. Although, officially, Benz is mentioned as the inventor of the modern automobile, several other German engineers were building a similar vehicle at the same time as Benz.
Cars with gasoline internal combustion engines were manufactured for the first time in Germany by Karl Benz between 1885-6 and by Gottlieb Daimler between 1886-9.
