    What is a car?

    Let's see what a car is: what is the meaning and origin of the word, and in what cases is appropriate to use.

    The word "car" is of Greek-Latin origin. “Auto” - Greek “self”, “mobile” (Latin) - movement. That is, a car is a vehicle that moves independently.

    Unlike horse-drawn vehicles (and other carriages), the cars were driven by an internal combustion engine, which is why this invention received such a name. Engines in cars can be steam, diesel, gasoline, gas, electric, gas and hybrid.

    Car: definition

    Today, automobiles call all cars and trucks, trolley buses, buses and even armored personnel carriers. But motorcycles and tractors do not belong to this category. That is, a car is a self-propelled mechanical trackless vehicle on four wheels, intended for the carriage of passengers and goods, as well as for towing.
